Who is God the Creator?
God the Creator
I find that much of the skepticism regarding God as the Creator of the Universe is the result of misunderstanding what science has discovered about the cosmos in which we exist. The Copernican Principle is a mistaken conclusion drawn from the Copernican Revolution. The Earth is the center of God's Universe regardless of the fact that it is not the center cosmologically. To understand this, we must first come to grips with the difference between Earth and any other place in our Universe.
The Universe is utterly hostile to life. We have searched the heavens at minimum 13 billion light-years away (that would be 78,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles away if I calculated correctly) without finding any evidence of any Life anywhere else whatsoever . (Some say this distance is really 42 billion light-years.) Meanwhile, the Earth is teeming with an incredible array of Life with more than two million species named by science thus far—having just scratched the surface. The Earth itself is a Living Organism with a heartbeat. This ought to tell something important to any thinking person.
What are the scientific facts that tell us how rare the Earth is? Mostly, these have to do with how perfectly God designed the Earth and placed it in the Universe. There would be no Earth filled with Life if any of the following were changed by one to five percent (at the most): The magnetic field; the size and proximity of the moon; the size of Earth itself; the size of the Earth's crust; the level of oxygen and nitrogen; the temperature; the atmosphere and atmospheric pressure; and our distance from the sun.
Slime or Design
Those who believe in the Copernican Principle fail to see that Earth is the perfect observatory for human beings to view the heavens. On no other planet we have found does there exist the combination of "coincidences" that provides us with a clear view of the Universe, including the chromosphere of our Sun and flash spectrums, as well as solar and lunar eclipses. Why such a great view from Earth? God is granting us knowledge of the heavens so that we might see His glory.
Please consider that there is not one person who is living now; who has in the past; or who will live in future with the exact DNA blueprint that created YOU—unless you are an identical twin. Some scientists estimate that well over 100 trillion humans have lived on this planet. However many there have been, you are unique among them. There has never been anyone exactly like you and never will be. So what do you think? Are you up from primordial slime or did God the Creator design you and the Universe you exist in at this moment? And if He did design you: What for? For a reason and a purpose of His. God did not create humans capable of discovering all of this astonishing scientific knowledge so we would turn into atheists and make man God. God is granting us scientific knowledge so we might glimpse His Glory and praise His Name.
