Why doesn't the Torah begin with the word God -- as it is written, isn't it possible to believe that time pre-existed God's creation of the world: what reason could there be for time to exist in eternity? Was time the map of creation? -- I thought Torah was? But Torah too is filled with chronology and measurements of time -- is our world only distinct from God because of (thru) time?
