In the King James version of the Bible, Romans 1:19-20 says,
quote:Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Hebrews 11:3 - by faith we understand that God made worlds, that were framed by the word of God, so that things which are tangible are not made of tangible things, but invisible.
Hebrews 11:3 says
