Amazing Facts

Our world rotates on it's axis at a rate of 1,000 miles per hour, yet as we stand upon it we feel that we are standing still.

Our world also travels around our sun at about 67,000 miles per hour, every minute of every day, 365 days a year, yet we do not have 67,000 mile per hour winds.

What's a windy day, 30 to 40 mile per hour winds ?

I honestly have not found a god that I can bring myself to believe in.

Whoever created the universe is one heck of an architect. But then it might have been a group of " architects ".

I invite your comments.

I am a Roman Catholic and I belive that God creared the universe. Thank you for sharing this amazing story.

Really ? Who's god should creation be identified with ? <br />
There are countless "gods." An awful lot of them, if not all, were dreamed up by men, which makes them nothing more than subjective nonsense and superstition. <br />
You seriously doubt that these architects could coordinate their efforts long enough to accomplish such an undertaking ? Well, they wouldn't think like humans, would they ? So how could you know how long they could coordinate their efforts, being human yourself, like the rest of us ? Why would you doubt a supernatural being's abilities ?

In order for life to have appeared spontaneously on earth, there first had to be hundreds of millions of protein molecules. Given the size of the planet Earth, do you know how long it would have taken for just one of these protein molecules to appear entirely by chance? Roughly ten to the two hundred and forty-third power billions of years. And I find that far, far more fantastic than simply believing there is no god. Nature (creation) needs to be identified with god (the creator). I seriously doubt any group of architects could come to terms long enough in building such a vast universe.

Correct T3. <br />
So many questions, and so few real answers.

Thank you, booklover.<br />
I appreciate that.

Thanks DB.

I like your perspective, I personally believe in god, like in the christian sense but I don't call myself a christian because I don't believe in organized religion. But I like your take on things. :)

Orchid, <br />
I do not believe in random creation of this universe. <br />
I am not very well versed on the chaos theory, but from what I've read about it, I do not believe there is any way that those sort of dynamics could have created such order. <br />
I also believe that the big bang is nonsense.<br />
Big explosion and here we are so many eons or whatever, later. No, I can't believe that. <br />
There is just to much order to this place. <br />
I believe that this place was meticulously designed by a being or a group of beings. <br />
If this were true, they would have to be infinitely more powerful and intelligent than humans. <br />
Should they be called gods ? I don't think so. <br />
Not by the definitions I've seen. <br />
I like the word architect, which means "master builder".<br />
How about a "supreme architect"or group of "supreme architects" ? <br />
By the way, I haven't found a religion that I would trust to lead me through life. I'm just trying to be as logical as I can, given what I perceive.

chaos theory? if we subscribed to that in this case then everything would really be going wrong wouldn't it? given the complexity as to how the whole universe thing works. (please orchid, don't run circles around me on this on!)<br />
<br />
Persoanlly, i subscribe to the 'Great Maker' - call him/her/it whatever you like....

So I take it you don't believe in the "chaos theory"?

I believe that an individual, or group of individuals are responsible for creating the universe, I just don't have any idea who. <br />
There is too much order around us. The way things all sort of dovetail together. It can't be by chance.

Religions, God, god, nature. These things are so very different and seperate to me. Religion, that is organized, well, it is the opiate of the masses. God, the jury is still out on that. But nature, now that is a wonderous power. Awe inspiring and thought provoking. Guess what I'm trying to say is some people can't seperate "nature" and "god". I like to think I can.

I opt to not separate nature and God. I feel the mysteries of the deepest seas to the vastness of open desserts, the whole unknown aspect of nature is God. For we will never truly know its origin as well as the origin of God. It's evident it fossils records, why is it that all of a sudden there is a burst of lifeforms, when the previous layers only consist of microscopic organisms?
