The Enormity of the Universe Points to God’s Existence — Opinion

How could it be any other way?

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.

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.

Enter the Milky Way

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.

The Vastness of it All

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?

The Creator of Everything

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?

WATCH: Biden Appears to Be Reading His Answers Off Monitor During Interview — ‘I Lost That Line’

OHHHHH!!

The short clip in the tweet below shows Joe Biden looking away from the interviewer, peering at a camera or monitor or person, saying “I lost that line.” In other words, it is blatantly evident that he is being spoon-fed answers during this interview – and likely others, too. The saddest part? The reporter just goes along with it, as if there’s nothing “off” here. Imagine if Trump did this with Sean Hannity. Instant pandemonium.

Go ahead and spout off on Joe in the comments section. Consider this an open thread…

Ginsburg On NFL Players Kneeling for the National Anthem: ‘It’s Dumb & Disrespectful’

How about them apples?

If the mainstream media reported on these quotes from Ruth Bader Ginsburg about NFL players kneeling for the national anthem, a lot of lefties would be very, very disappointed. Ginsburg and conservatives may not have agreed on most issues but at the end of the day, the former Supreme Court justice appeared to be a Democrat who actually loved her country. Check this out, via Breitbart: As America continues to reflect on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it is notable to remember that she was not a supporter of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protests during the national anthem. […] “I think it’s really dumb of them,” Ginsburg said of Kaepernick’s protests during an interview with Katie Couric in October of 2016. RBG added, “If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.” Here are some reactions from the Twitter world on RBG’s passing… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1307151318201622528 https://twitter.com/BillClinton/status/1307143819478159360 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1307146028555014145 https://twitter.com/politico/status/1307149781186342917 https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1307146967420727296 https://twitter.com/TomFitton/status/1307142540123090944 https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1307157591836033027 https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1307157179133296640
