Conway Morris on creatio ex nihilo

"I would suggest that all attempts to understand consciousness will fail until we not only abandon a naturalistic framework, but also re-frame our question in the context of a much wider (and stranger) universe that is not only thoroughly supernatural, consisting of worlds both visible and (to us) invisible, but also only explicable by the agency of creatio ex nihilo."

Simon Conway Morris, "What is written into creation?," in Creation and the God of Abraham, ed. David B. Burrell, Carlo Cogliati, Janet Martin Soskice, and William R. Stoeger (Cambridge:  Cambridge University Press, 2010), 188 (176-191).
