The Solar System is much less than a microscopic dot compared to the size of the Universe. Yet the Universe is aligned to the Solar System: http://i44.servimg.com/u/f44/16/14/18/96/axis_o10.jpg That image is not to scale lol. The Multiverse Gambit cannot address this alignment? "Oh, instead of 10 raised to the 500 Uni's there are 10 raised to the gazillion Uni's". Take THAT IDiots;) ppolish
Reminds me of Louie Giglio's 'if the earth were a golfball' video
“You could fit 262 trillion earths inside (the star of) Betelgeuse. If the Earth were a golfball that would be enough to fill up the Superdome (football stadium) with golfballs,,, 3000 times!!! When I heard that as a teenager that stumped me right there because most of my praying had been advising God, correcting God, suggesting things to God, drawing diagrams for God, reviewing things with God, counseling God.” - Louie Giglio - How Great Is Our God - Part 2 - video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfNiZrt5FjU “we live on a blue planet that circles a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe in miracles?” - picture http://www.listofimages.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/solar-eclipse-space-moon-earth-sun-other.jpg
Verse, quote and music
Psalm 8: 3-4 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." - C.S. Lewis Sara Groves - You Are The Sun - Music video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqC3F2VGVHU
further note:
In The Beginning - 12 May 2015 Excerpt: As I walked out of Steinhardt’s office for the last time, it occurred to me that our cosmos is once again a sphere. Our Earth has been demoted in recent centuries. It no longer enjoys its former status as the still centre of all that is. But it does sit in the middle of our observable cosmos, the sphere of light that we can detect with our telescopes. Gaze into this sphere’s reaches from any point on Earth’s surface, and you can see light coming toward you in layers, from stars and the planets that circle them, from the billions of galaxies beyond, and the final layer of light, the afterglow of the Big Bang. http://aeon.co/magazine/science/has-cosmology-run-into-a-creative-crisis/ The Known Universe by AMNH – video – (please note the ‘centrality’ of the Earth in the universe at the 3:36 minute mark in the video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17jymDn0W6U
Here is a still shot of the image at the 3:36 minute mark of the preceding video which highlights the centrality of the earth in the universe:
Picture of Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR) http://new-universe.org/zenphoto/albums/Chapter4/Illustrations/Abrams47.jpg Centrality of The Earth Within The 4-Dimensional Space-Time of General Relativity – video http://www.metacafe.com/watch/8421879/
Moreover, this 'circle' of the CMBR that is found by modern science to encompass the Earth, from the remnant of the creation event that brought the entire universe instantaneously into being, was actually predicted in the Bible centuries earlier:
Proverbs 8:27 (King James Version) "When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he drew a circle upon the face of the depth:" Proverbs 8:27 (New International Version) "I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep," Job 26:10 He has inscribed a circle on the face of the waters at the boundary between light and darkness.
