I remember watching Captain James T. Kirk on the original Star Trek series. If my memory serves me correctly, he used to break into a speech, where he would preach about man’s inhumanity to…(I guess)…Aliens. Anyway, where would TV Space shows be if they couldn’t capture the imagination with thoughts of interacting with life beyond our plant? But imagine is all that we can do. So far, manned space travel has hardly left our front yard. I’m excited to see more. Just why did God create such a vast universe and, as far as we know, put life on only one planet? That, you’ll agree, is a question for eternity. What we do know is that all that is beyond our atmosphere is a witness to God’s glory. And the longer you look at the universe, the more overwhelmed you become at its mystery and magnitude. Our 93 million miles from the sun is nothing when we think of distance measured in Light Years. Man thinks himself to be the great inventor as he orders the resources at his disposal. But in reality, he is merely utilising an infinitesimal amount of material and energy present in God’s creation. How can we get our heads around the intricate timing of the orbits of our planetary system, let alone the countless galaxies operating beyond us. The sheer magnitude of ‘UY Scuti,’ the hypergiant star, with a radius about 1,700 times larger than the sun, is impossible to fathom. I have listened to the atheistic scientists choke on the word, ‘design.’ Even they, despite their best efforts, can’t get away from the obvious. God, by the means of a simple display of tiny lights in the night sky, announces His presence to all humanity. No, we are not all by ourselves. In fact, we can’t hide from the proof of His presence.
