Why bother creating all the other galaxies?

    Purrpurr, there is only one thing now that is important, forget the stars and galaxies which are so vast and far distant that we don’t have the imagination to comprehend them. Forget what the Bible says, or God or Jesus...these are now relegated to minor players in the religion business. What really counts are the words which come from the true centre of the universe; the seven ancient gnomes, the self appointed holy protectors of the sacred doctrines. On bended knee and in holy worship let us all praise the Holy Brothers of Brooklyn.......

    Seriously for a moment, you do make a good point about the purpose of the unfathomable size of the universe if it was "created".

    I thought most dubs believed that once Jehoover sorts out the almighty dick-measuring contest between him and Satan as to who should rule the universe that once earth has been sorted humans will then populate every planet in every galaxy.

    Hell of a job eh?

    Lets see, we have about 183 billion stars in our galaxy, so God created them for

    our, whatever. So with the naked eye we may be able to see 1-5% of those stars.

    But God knew one day man would invent the telescope so we could gaze at his

    What if for every inhabitable planet, there is a different Satan? God had to create enough planets to cast all of the rebel angels to each one. Life forms on each planet exist only to keep all of the Satans busy.

    Most believers aren't fundy believers like JWs are.

    Isn't it kind of arrogant to think that WE are the only reason that the universe exists? Or even that we are the only sentient beings in the universe? As noted, most of that universe is inaccessible to us.

    If our universe only contained our sun (or our sun and a few more stars) it would be a great mystery why our planet was suitable for life; that is on theism we can have a single sun or billions of sun, whereas on naturalism we expect there to be billions of suns.

    Exactly. There is nothing special about our planet having the right conditions to host life. There are about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 in the observable universe, so what are the chances that a few (or a few thousand), are also at the proper distance from a sun and also have good athmosphere? Pretty good actually.

    And on these planets that also have the right conditions for life, what are the chances that the same processes that originated life here, also happens on those planets? Pretty good actually.

    That's why I think we are not alone in the universe.
