TonusOH : The Sci-Fi fan in me can't help but imagine how awesome it would be if one of the images captured was of a large hand gently nudging a galaxy into place.
@TOH: The accounts say that God spoke it all into existence. I find this interesting because science has now pretty much agreed (reluctantly for the Material Naturalists) that the fundamental nature of all thigs is INFORMATION.
Here's a little quote from PBS NOVA :
And an equation like this:“It doesn’t matter whether something consists of equations, words, images or sounds—you can encode any of that in strings of zeroes and ones,” or bits, says Scott Aaronson, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT.
We have known for over a hundred years about the double slit experiment that demonstrates how photons travel as informational probability waves but then collapse into physical photons so your eye can observe them. But the amazing thing is that it has now been conclusively demonstrated that matter (clumps of over 100 atoms) has been shown to do the same thing. The fundamental nature of everything you see is - INFORMATION.
This is a really big problem for those heavily invested in atheism. The next logical question is; Where did the information come from?
The LORD founded the earth by wisdom, He established the heavens by understanding. - Proverbs 3: 19
Atheists are clueless on where the information comes from. Their worldview actually prevents them from even asking questions like these. They have thought themselves into a box and decided to stay there no matter what real science demonstrates.
Joey: Personally I would like to know how plants survived before the Sun was created.
@Joey: Jesus created light on Day one. "Let there be light".....As it was in the beginning, so it is now:
“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6, ESV).
It would have been nice to meet the Creator in the Galilee region around AD 30, after having the scientific knowledge that we now have.
The truly mind-boggling thing is that after the Millennium Reign, Jesus will roll the entire universe up like a scroll and do it all over again: There will be "a new heavens and a new earth".
This time Jesus will have many, many friends who will have front row seats to the Creation event. It will be the ultimate Popcorn experience I'm sure.
