Universe

Thinking about the word "Universe"
One word for such vastness; such splendor; such drama; such beauty
Uni = One.
Verse = One piece of poetry*
I can't help thinking how it was that God spoke the worlds into being.
Isn't it a lovely thought that
His words may have been a
single piece of
exquisite poetry?
The "big bang" concept by contrast seems almost blasphemous when applied to such
diaphonous
beauty . . .
Big Question:
Deep space is dark, black.
There is no water
No air.
But all these look as though
there were a spotlight on them.
What is the spotlight?
Where does all the light come from?

i don't think 'big bang' is blasphemous. to me it illustrates how GOD created it all out of nothing, as in: first there was nothing, and then poof, there was everything...

Interesting way of merging the two ways of looking at things, Jacki.
I like it

Wow...It is so BIG and to think God is in it and around it!

Shew - are those pics real?? Amazing!

God did say that He reveals Himself to us in Nature and has hidden knowledge of Himself inside of man - these pictures almost prove the nature part of that statement!

Lynette, the heavens are the part of Nature that speak the loudest of the greatness of God to me.
I think, judging by the Old Testament, it has been that way for many people over the ages.

Dunno Kate
I got the pics off the internet so obviously they must be real *grin*

Seriously, I have seen others that are similar in more scientific scenarios so I have put these up in good faith.
Awesome aren't they?!
