Adam Said

The Bible tells us that “God said, ‘Let there be light’ and there was light.” Before that God was in darkness. That means he wasn’t conscious of anything, which means he wasn’t conscious at all. That means that he couldn’t have formed the concept of light nor, indeed, have a word such as light in his vocabulary. He wouldn’t have a vocabulary. No words, no letters, would exist.

For the person who holds the primacy of consciousness position this means that he regards himself as creating not only something out of nothing, but of creating something with nothing, which leads him, in real life, to desire something for nothing. This latter, of course, leads him directly to desire and expect un-earned love, to seek un-earned minimum wages and, in politics, to want and support some variant of collectivism.
