Consider the vastness of the universe.  Our galaxy is one of about a million galaxies in the range of our most powerful telescopes. If we could travel at the speed of light, 186,000 miles a second, it would take 100,000 years to go across our galaxy. In our galaxy it is estimated that there are 100 billion stars. Our sun is just one of them. Traveling in an orbit 155 miles a second, our sun would take 200 million years to complete a revolution around our galaxy.

"To whom then will you compare Me, or who is My equal? says the Holy One.  Lift up your eyes on high and see: Who created these? He who brings out their host and numbers them, calling them all by name; because He is great in strength, mighty in power, not one is missing." (Isaiah 40:25-26 NRSV)

No wonder the Psalmist writes, "The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims His handiwork."  (Psalm 19:1 NRSV)

Consider the wonders of earth itself. It spins on its axis without slowing up -- giving us day and night. It is tilted, so that we have the different seasons. It is just the right distance from the sun, so that we do not freeze or burn up. The earth contains all the natural resources necessary to sustain life. There are countless scientific testimonials to the orderliness of the world that prove an incredibly powerful Being created the universe.
