About 13,5 Billion years ago, matter, energy, time and space came into being in what is known as the Big Bang. And then the murders began. (Yuval Noah Harari: Sapiens)

In the beginning human beings created a God who was the First Cause of all things and Ruler of heaven and earth. And then the murders began. (Karen Armstrong: A History of God)

In many rituals the sacrifical act assumes two opposing aspects, appearing at times as sacred obligation to be neglected at great peril, at other times as a sort of criminal activity entailing perils of equal gravity. And then the murders began. (René Girard: Violence and the Sacred)
