Ex nihilo nihil fit. Out of nothing, nothing comes. One of the great questions of our existence is why there is something rather than nothing. Why does anything exist? As this Latin phrase suggests, if ever there was a point where absolutely nothing existed, then that state of nothingness would still be the case. Therefore, something must be eternally self-existent. That is the logical quandary we find ourselves in.
There is both a natural world and a supernatural world. Is that a religious statement? Yes, but it has now become a scientific statement as well. Thanks to string theory, we now have a working definition of what the descriptive word supernatural may mean.
