The rumors of God’s death back in 1966 were premature. Eric Metaxas, a Senior Fellow and Lecturer at Large for the King’s College in New York City, discusses the basics of the universe in the context of intelligent design, all within a five-minute time frame.
Atheistic scientists argue there is no center to the universe. Is this rational?
In a NASA podcast in which Diane Fisher of the New Millennium Program interviews Dr. Marc Rayman, a scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the question of the center of the universe is the discussion topic. Rayman states, “Now we know that not only are we humans not at the center of the universe, but there is no center of the universe!”
Dr. Rayman uses an analogy of an inflatable balloon to support his theory. I forego quoting him. You can read the transcript yourself. If you can accept his analogy and believe there is no center to an inflatable balloon, it’s probably best you search for something else to read.
Rayman’s interesting unscientific belief that there is no center to the universe we shall now compare to other science that offers rational thoughts on our topic of the center of the universe.
From the Institute for Creation Research: “In contrast, creation cosmologies explain the data better by starting from biblically-based axioms: the cosmos has a unique center and a boundary for its matter, beyond which there is at least some empty space; and on a cosmic scale of distances, the earth is near the center.”
A movie titled IS GENESIS HISTORY features notable scientists who address the issues of creation, evolution and the age of the earth. View the official trailer. From the movie’s website, “Is Genesis History? features over a dozen scientists and scholars explaining how the world intersects with Genesis. From rock layers to fossils, from lions to stars, this fascinating film will change the way you see the world.”
The movie can be viewed on demand, purchase a DVD, or view it on Netflix.
As someone who believes there is a definite center to an inflatable balloon, I personally recommend viewing the movie.
