|In him was life; and the life was the light of men.|
There is a very old Latin law of science that goes like this: ex nihilo nihil fit. "Out of nothing, nothing comes."
In other words, nothing does not produce something. Yet, every theory of creation except the Biblical one violates this simple law.
In the Big Bang Theory, everything came from hydrogen. But since hydrogen is not believed to be eternal, the most scientific guess for evolutionists as to its origin is that it just "appeared" out of thin air.
In the Hindu view of creation, the world came to being on top of a gigantic elephant, which rests on top of a gigantic turtle. That turtle rests on top of another turtle and on and on to infinity until one turtle just "appears." In both theories of creation, nothing produced something.
In the Biblical view of creation, everything that exists originally came from God. All life originated in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Here in John 1:4, the Apostle tells us that life came from Jesus Christ. And Jesus used His life here on earth to serve as a light to men, teaching them about salvation (see John 8:12).
