"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Until a giant asteroid comes crashing down one day. That's God's glory and work of his hands for ya. It's not a question of "If" but "when." Earth, as well as all celestial bodies in our solar system have been bombarded by asteroids/meteors. Earth has it's craters, too. Like the crater in Arizona, Tunguska, and the Yucatan peninsula which is what is believed to have wiped out the dinosaurs, for example. There are over 50 impact sites on land alone, and even more in the ocean we have seen thanks to satellites and imaging techniques. However, it's certain Earth has had many more impacts throughout it's 4.5 billion year history, but a lot of Earth's craters have disappeared because of erosion, overgrowth, plate tectonics, volcanoes, and other natural geological processes. Also, by about 2030, an asteroid will pass by extremely close to Earth and will be affected by our gravity. It will then swing back around, and depending on how exactly Earth's gravity affects it upon it's initial pass, it may collide with us when it swings back around. I can't recall the size they estimated it as or the destruction it may cause, but it will be devastating none the less if it does indeed impact us.
"Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
Wrong question, and fallacious assertion. What can be asserted without evidence, can also be dismissed without evidence. It should be more like "WHAT" created all these. The answer to "what created..." could be many things, where as the question of "who created.." restricts the answer to only Gods/Sentient beings.
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
ROFL. More bad science from the Bible. The author of this (and the author of Genesis/6 day creation story, which is HORRIBLE and backwards science) in the Bible is an idiot with no understanding or grasp of nature. If the ignorance of nature gave birth to the Gods, then knowledge of nature is calculated to destroy them.
No one "brings out the stars." The way the author has worded this makes it sound like the stars go away in the day, then God calls them out by their "names" to bring them back to their positions. Stars are where they are, and they constantly shine, even in daylight. Of course we can't see them in the daylight because of the atmosphere, but their light is always continuously shining toward us. And stars don't have names unless we name them.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing." Isa 40.26
ROFL.. HAHAHA. No star is "missing." Do stars get kidnapped, or run away? Even when a star dies, and goes supernova, it is not missing, it's just not a star anymore. It's matter is still accounted for. What the hell is this nonsense even doing in what is supposed to be the "infallible Bible which is God's word?"
The evidence is inescapable even if you don't believe
you still cannot help seeing it and even if you were blind
it comes down through the dawn chorus.
The universe, Earth, life, us, the bible, and theoretical arguments for God is NOT evidence of a design/designer. It is only evidence that we exist. And if the universe's laws such as physics, gravity, and thermodynamics to name a few were any different, then the universe would be different. Would we, or another species as intelligent as us not exist in one way or another if things were any different? It's hard to say for sure, but it's not impossible. The biggest flaw with your argument here is that you insist that the Universe and Earth was created for us, but if that is not the case as we Atheists suggest, then we were "made" for Earth in the sense that the way that we evolved was hugely dependent on our surrounding environments on Earth, aka "Natural selection."
Isn't God great? Let all His creation worship HIM!
No, he is not great if he is the God of the Bible and does indeed exist. I would rather worship the sun.
