Where Does Matter Come From? (It Matters!)

Suppose you could take back everything in the world and compress it into a heavy molecule only three centimeters in each direction, and suppose that everything came from that. 

This is still no answer to man's basic problem, because it does not explain how that molecule came to be there or how from that molecule could come the form and complexity of the present universe, or something as personal and as mannish as man. 

For this the scriptural answer is needed.

(From Francis Schaeffer's Genesis in Space and Time)
