"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth...."

Quantum Theory. Though by the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, as the position and and momentum of a system can never be simultaneously known, we can never really perceive of the "beginning", although the contemporary expansion of the universe "seems" to account fairly well for a "creation event" within the constraints of the Planck Time.

Given this, it doesn't stretch credulity that such expansion by E=mc2, where mass(m) is relativistically constrained, that 15 billion years might be expressed otherwise as "6 days".

"If I knew Him I'd be Him." Yet He doesn't seem stingy in time.
