Creatio Ex Nihilo Does Not Entail Time Before Time

MYTH
Creatio ex nihilo is impossible because it implies time before time

A common misconception about creation ex nihilo is that it implies time before time. "Before" is ontologically (causally), not temporally, prior. God existed before time even though time did not. Before time there was no time, there was eternity.
