Musings about Sundays and galaxies

We’ve meditated on the perhaps 2 trillion galaxies (yikes it’s the NYT) in our 14 billion year old universe and the very very small number of 20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets. Too much to think about. The vast numbers, whatever they are, certainly call into question the idea of a Blessed Trinity ruling a universe with earth as its center, with earth-man Jesus as a member of the three god Board of Directors. Indeed, we’ve come to think that the creation and populating of the planets was a teaching assignment from the real God to some intergalactic high school students possessing the same wisdom found in our schools today. But we have to tell you that in our reading, Moses, the Book of Exodus, and the wisdom and simplicity of the Ten Commandments appear at odds with the big numbers above. As an oldster, we’re not too far from finding out what the answers are, and we’ll be sure to post our findings on this website. Stay tuned and thanks!

    Even as a little kid, I could never grasp the concept of an infinite universe. I still can’t get my feeble mind around it. All of our earthly observations have a beginning and end; games, tasks, illness, seasons life cycles. How something can go on and on is just beyond me.

    Having said that, then why only 2 trillion galaxies? If The Universe is infinite, why is there not an infinite number of galaxies and planets, though the numbers cited probably makes the difference an academic one?

    Why?
