How to Create a Physical Universe Ex Nihilo

Faith and Philosophy 3 (1):16-26 (1986)
Abstract
This paper examines the principle of creation ex nihilo as formulated by St. Augustine and contrasts it with the common-sense principle that “something cannot come from nothing.” It is argued that these two principles, if suitably interpreted, are logically consistent and a creation scenario is described in which their compatibility is demonstrated
