In the beginning, God created gold. And the free markets for them.

The creation of all gold- that which has come to symbolize money- was forged by nature out of a violent cataclysm of a stellar- and singular- magnitude, that was much bigger than a Facebook IPO.

Even today, scientists still do not agree how gold was created. 

They do know that...
