32. You guys are all wrong! It began with the Holy Nullity
The Universe (of discourse) was begat by the Power (set) of the Null Set, followed by the Power (set) of the Power (set) of the Null Set, and so on and so forth, to (indefinite) infinity.

Don't you see? Can't you see the Great Truth?

Nothing is sacred!

;)

I reveal this truth to you all in my role as a Cardinal of the Church of the Holy Nullity (we have Ordinals, too).

(By now there are two sets of readers: those who've studied mathematics and who are chuckling to themselves, and those who haven't, who are puzzled. The babble above is the mathematics behind number systems where, yes, everything is derived from nothing. Once upon a long time ago I and a number of my fellow 500-level Set Theory students founded The Church of The Holy Nullity in order to promulgate the Great Truth :) Sorry if it goes over most people's heads, but I couldn't resist.)
