In Judeo-Christian thinking there is the instance of Genesis, where God said "Let there be Light". But in Buddhism there is no Genesis; there is timelessness--no beginning, no end. But how can you reconile this? Either the universe had a beginning, or it didn't. There is no middle ground--until now. There is a way to combine Buddhism with Judeo-Christian thinking on Genesis. Physicists now believe that there is continual Genesis in a timeless ocean of 11-dimensional Nirvana.
Most people accept reality the way that we're taught. But reality doesn't necessarily conform itself to rules that we are readily taught in school.
