God Made the Universe, Not Chance

From the smallest particles in the universe, to the universe itself, to the multiverse, if it exists, God’s hand touches all.

A single infinitesimally small atom, sufficiently dense to contain matter equal to between 200 billion and two trillion galaxies, exploding via the phenomenon we call the Big Bang, was put in motion, somehow, someway, by a force as powerful, if not more powerful, than the energy in the universe itself.

The vastness of the known universe, added to whatever else is in the universe currently unknown, all but precludes that the existence of the cosmos is a result of some spontaneous, chemical, physical reaction without a driving force behind it. Some entity, spirit, first driver, or, most likely, deity, had to have been behind it.

Irregular Shapes and Sizes

Galaxies, it is now known, appear in irregular shapes and sizes and, among them, many dwarf galaxies exist. Dwarf galaxies, the smallest in the universe, contain only a few hundred or a few thousand stars. Dwarf galaxies routinely lose their stars to their much larger neighbors via gravity. As stars stream across the sky, dwarf galaxies frequently are ripped apart.

Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, rotates at about 560,000 miles per hour and completes one full revolution every 200 million years or so. One Milky Way revolution ago, dinosaurs ruled planet Earth. The emergence of Homo erectus was 196,000,000 years in the future.

The Milky Way has nearly 300 billion stars, however, this is atypical. Most galaxies have fewer stars, perhaps around 100 billion. If galaxies were reduced in size to that of apples, neighboring galaxies would be a handful of meters apart. The relative proximity of galaxies means that galaxies occasionally emerge. Around four billion years from today, the Milky Way will merge with the Andromeda galaxy.

The merging process itself will require at least 100 million years. During this transition, all life on earth will be irrevocably altered and most likely obliterated, as will virtually all life everywhere else within both galaxies. Stars and their orbiting planets, known as solar systems, will be subjected to enormous changes in rotation, revolution, gravity, orbit, and motion down to the molecular level. Nothing alive will remain unscathed.

All So Vast

In the observable universe, each star has at least one planet orbiting around it. Most stars have more than one planet, as does our Sun. Thus, the observable universe likely contains 20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or more stars. (To break this number down, it equals 200 trillion, times 100 trillion).

Since each star has at least one planet rotating around it, if even one in 100 trillion stars has an orbiting planet which contains life, that would add up to 200 trillion planets in the known universe which contain life.

If only one in one thousand of these 200 trillion planets contain intelligent life, perhaps even hominoid-shaped life, that would mean 200 billion planets contain intelligent life. Not only are we not alone in the universe, the odds of extraterrestrial intelligent life are overwhelming. The distances likely are too vast for us to encounter such life, although UFO enthusiasts like to keep up the dialogue. How were these planets seeded? From where did the live cells spring? Can 200 billion planets containing intelligent life be anything but the handiwork of God?

Who Created it All?

The notion that a supreme or divine being actually appeared on Earth tens of thousands of years ago, or 2000 years ago, or last week, and has some direct, familial connection to God, makes one pause when you consider that there are a minimum of 200 billion other planets that contain intelligent life.

The unfathomable size of the universe in and of itself supports the notion that a divine being set it all in motion. There simply can’t be so much randomness in our lives, and in existence itself, to conclude that it all unfolded in some haphazard fashion.

God had to have been at the starting point. From the smallest particles in the universe, to the universe itself, to the multiverse, if it exists, God’s hand touches all. How could it be any other way?

Trump Drops Brutal Truth Bomb About Biden’s Border ‘Invasion’

BOOM!

Published

on

There is little doubt that the situation on the southern border of the United States is untenable, catastrophic, and simply sad.

The election of Joe Biden had predictably attracted a massive surge of migrants to the border, as a perceived leniency toward immigration reform almost always comes with Democratic administrations.

To make matter worse, Biden’s choice to appoint Vice President Kamala Harris to the position of Border Czar has been an unmitigated mess, with Harris deciding that she’s rather work on climate change, calling it a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

During a raucous Saturday night rally in Georgia, former President Donald Trump absolutely obliterated the Biden border fiasco.

“Joe Biden has thrown the border wide open and our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people every single month. Every month we have hundreds of thousands of people coming and we don’t even see the people that are really coming in, and I guarantee you they’re the worst of all. “

And then:

“The world is coming into our country. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. I used to say from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, but now it’s from many countries all over the world including the Middle East. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. We’re having people coming into our country that we do not want.”

Biden has been busy lamenting the tactics used by Border Patrol during this unprecedented surge, and taking some guff from federal law enforcement in the process.

Lindsey Graham Makes Major Statement Regarding Trump’s Potential 2024 Run

We did NOT see that coming!

Lindsey Graham

Donald Trump isn’t always the easiest guy to get along with, politically, but that was kind of the point all along.

You see, Trump was elected in 2016 as a disruptor; as the guy who would arrive in Washington and tear down the walls of political pomp, and instill a sense of urgency back to the White House.  It was never going to be a smooth course to sail, but a great many Americans felt that this turbulence was going to be necessary.

Of course, for those that have been a part of Washington’s political machinations for years weren’t always on-board with Trump’s maneuvering, and plenty of on-again, off-again squabbles did occur.

Senator Lindsey Graham was one of those who butted heads with No. 45 on a semi-regular basis, but it does seem as though he’s coming around to the idea of getting Trump back into the White House.

​Sen. Lindsey Graham told a gathering of Republicans that he hopes former President Donald Trump runs in 2024.

“I don’t think Trump is listening. He might be. I hope President Trump runs again,” Graham (R-SC) said at a leadership conference for Michigan’s Republican Party on Saturday, according to the Detroit News.

The former President does appear to be strongly considering it.

Trump, who has been coy about whether he would throw his hat in the ring, came the closest to acknowledging a run in an interview on Friday.

He was asked by David Brody of Real America’s Voice Network if he could name a reason he wouldn’t.

“Well, I guess a bad call from a doctor or something, right?” Trump replied. “I will say, that happens with people.”

“So things happen, through God, they happen,” Trump added. “But you know, I feel so good, and I hate what’s happening to our country.”

Trump and Graham have quarreled a fair bit over the course of the last few years, with their latest spat having taken place not more than a week ago.
