Abstract: For all three cosmic questions—“Did the universe have a beginning?”“Is the universe designed?” and “Are we alone?”—it was the conjunction as well as the divergence between Athens (Classical philosophy, especially Plato's Timaeus and Aristotle's Physics) and Jerusalem (the Bible, especially the Book of Genesis and the apostle Paul) that illumined the questions themselves, provided material for the answers, and set the terms for the subsequent discussion of them in later centuries.
