While the account in Genesis does not require ex nihilo, this doctrine was
reinforced, for the Christian, in Hebrews 11:3 -- "what is seen has been
made from things that are not visible" (EIS TO MH EK FAINOMENWN TO
BLEPOMENON GEGONENAI).  I say this only to explain why some hold the
position, not to argue for it.
