    I love looking at the stars. Planets. Galaxies. Hubbles website amazes me. I also believe in a higher power. Why can't you have both? I've been told over the years, many times, that all that stuff I read is BS. All the pictures that Hubble takes aren't real. Scientist keep this scam going so they can get funding and get money. I have a close friend who laughs at the FACT that there is more than 9 planets in the universe. (and he's an educated man!)

    This, to me, goes back to when people were killed for thinking the earth revolved around the sun, not the other way around. People killed others for wanting to discover something new. The stuff I'm talking about is the hard facts. Some things still aren't proven or understood, but some of it is COLD, HARD, FACTS. I showed my friend pics of different galaxies, he says, without hesitation "not real". What?! Can you be any more closed minded than that?

    I think the universe goes hand in hand with creation. How could you not? It's out there for us to see at look at! Yeah, yeah, it's all open for debate, and we will all find out after we die. I can't wait till my buddy and I both die, and I then I can tell him "told you so". hahaha

    What the heck are you talking about? What kind of moron doesnt believe there are other galaxies out there? What religion teaches that bullcrap? You can see other galaxies with your naked eye on the right now. Your whole premise makes absolutely no sense.

    Billions of galaxies with billions of stars in each. And that is all we can see so far.

    Yeah if we are the best that is out there I might have to believe in Gawd.
    However we are a piss poor product to be designed and made by a perfect all powerful being. Perhaps he has a sense of humor?
