Ex Nihilo Discussion, Ages 6 and 9, A True Story

6 year old: What was there before there was anything? There couldn't have been just blackness, because black is something. But it couldn't have just been all white, either, because white is something, too. So what was there before there was anything else?

9 year old: Well, there never was a time before there was anything else, because no matter what, God has always been there.

6 year old: Hmm.

Yes, our 6 year old is a philosopher, and our 9 year old is a mystic.
