Everything that we as humans can conceive of exists in some form. Even though our fantasies, such as unicorns, mermaids, and Star Trek aliens, don’t actually exist they are pieced together from parts of things that do. The unicorn is made up of a horse and a horn, the mermaid from a fish and a woman, and Star Trek aliens are humans with various features taken from our experience of the world around us. Even nothingness, defined as the absence of anything material, “existed” before God created.


If all of this is true, then why is the immaterial, and specifically an immaterial God, the only exception?
