In this paper, I dispute a position articulated by Jacek Bolewski that the conception of creation from nothingness does not constitute the essential diference between Christian and Indian understanding of being, contrary to popular belief. Bolewski argues that when reconsidered the meaning of this dif erence in the Biblical context it reveals the convergence of fundamental intuitions of both traditions. I refute this view and claim that the popular belief, wrongly rejected by Bolewski, is justified and well-grounded in the thought of the Church Fathers developed in opposition to the Greek way of conceptualizing being. h erefore, I maintain that Bolewski’s arguments are based on the formal similarity only, not the content one, and, moreover, that this similarity is merely seeming and implied by the confusion of two orders – theologico-existential order, typical of the Bible, and logico-metaphysical one which is essential to the religious and philosophical tradition of India expressed in the Nasadiya Sukta.
