|Quick Basic Science Lesson:
Each of the clusters above is a galaxy.
There are billions of galaxies in the known universe.
Each galaxy is made up of billions of stars.
Each star has several planets in orbit.
One of the billions of galaxies in the universe is ours.
Our galaxy (the Milky Way) is made up of billions of stars.
Just one of those stars is our own, the Sun.
We live on the third planet in orbit around that sun.
Only some of the people on this planet are christians.
God resembles the ape called homo-sapiens (man).
God created all of this universe yet nobody created god.
God granted dominion over all of this, ONLY to the christians.
If this is true, how logical is
it for you to believe that an ape-like god created all of
these galaxies, billions of them, all unique, but chose to give
special favor to just one, a rather common spiral galaxy (ours)
which is not even centrally located, focusing his favor upon just one
star out of billions, located in just one of the spiral
arms? Further, his favor is in just one of the planets around
that star, the planet Earth, and even more curious, in just one
species of animal (man) inhabiting that planet, and in just one tribe of
that animal, the christians! Does this really seem
logical to you?
For all our conceits
about being the center of the universe, we live on a routine planet of a
humdrum star, stuck away in an obscure corner, on an unexceptional galaxy
which is one of about 100 billion galaxies. That is the fundamental fact
of the universe we inhabit, and it is very good for us to understand
that. -- Dr. Carl Sagan
