 20.  How did the universe come to be?

A.) Firstly, God created the heavens and the earth, then light (photons) and dark (I guess the absence of photons).  Then he made something called the firmament (translates into metal sheet I'm told) to separate earth from the heavens.  Then, on earth, he made dry land and grass, herbs, fruit trees etc..  God then made the seasons, day, night, the sun, and the moon.  After that he made aquatic life and birds together.  And finally on the sixth day God made land creatures (especially cows), and then made man and woman in his likeness together. On the last day the almighty, understandably exhausted, needed to rest.

B.) All in one day God made the earth, heaven, land and water but hadn't yet allowed the laws of physics to cause rain, so there were no plants.  God then took some dust and made man, Adam.  Then, by blowing into Adam's nose, Adam came to life.  God then made all the plants, then all animals and birds.  Adam named them all in one day, but sadly found them to be poor company.  So God anaesthetized him, removed one of his ribs, and reconstructed it into into a woman, Eve.  All was pleasant in their garden until, at the urging of a snake, Adam and Eve stole the ability to distinguish between good and evil from a tree.  Because the two weren't naked, God surmised what they did and kicked them out of Eden, placing a flying flaming sword at the entrance to keep them from stealing immortality from another tree.  They then have children but we are left unclear on who their children procreate with.

C.) We don't know how it all started but after it did what most likely occurred is the Big Bang.  Then because of gravity, solar systems formed.  Then, beginning with very primitive life, evolution created species with increasing complexity within the window of entropy created between the sun and the void.  All leading up to the world we see today.

D.) Floating upon the ocean of First Cause lies the blessed Vishnu, a lotus blossom growing from his naval.  Vishnu awakes periodically to send the god Brahma to create a dream of the universe within the lotus blossom, but Vishnu inevitably enters his dream as Rudra, the destroyer, to consume the whole thing and start again.
