The story of creation is an awesome one. The Bible in the first book, Genesis, states that God spoke, simply spoke, and creation was brought into existence. This is called creation EX NIHILO, or creation out of nothing!
Of course, ex nihilo is a Latin term. Genesis was originally written down in Hebrew. The Hebrew term used there is “BARA”, to bring forth something for the first time, to create. When we humans now create, we actually are making something out of materials already here, already created…by the Creator.
