One can create, but many can manipulate.

God created all that is, for only God can create something from nothing.

Humankind has created nothing that is, for we can create nothing from nothing.


While only God can create something from nothing, mankind was created with the unique ability to intelligently change what God has created. We are allowed to manipulate God's creation, and we are provided with the mental ability to remember and understand the processes of change we observe. Our ability to systematically explain what is observable, and predict future change, is the essence of science. Even modern scientific knowledge does not provide us with a way to make something from nothing, but it does allow us to change, manipulate, convert, alter, reshape, combine, modify, transform and rearrange what has already been created by God.
