Our Universe Compared with the Preceding Cosmoses

The Babylonians, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Greeks all believed that the universe was eternal. What’s wrong with that? An eternal universe puts creation in the distant past and leaves no room for human participation in creation.

Previous Cosmoses Our Universe
Has a beginning Yes Yes
Has an ending No Yes
Has a history No Yes

David C. Shaw
