"The creation of all gold- that which has come to symbolize money" Gold doesn't symbolize money, it IS money; The Congress shall have Power ...To coin Money... What does this mean other than to take gold(or silver) to the mint and turn it into a standard of measure. US dollars which promised to pay the bearer money on demand "symbolized" money. Federal Reserve Notes are nothing, not even notes. A note is a promise to pay. All federal reserve notes claim is that they are legal tender for debts, that is, "fiat money", money because someone says so.

“Naught is possessed, neither gold, nor land nor love, nor life, nor peace, nor even sorrow nor death, nor yet salvation. Say of nothing: It is mine. Say only: It is with me.”

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...
