Good Heavens

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Like many of you, I avidly read the newspaper accounts of new astronomical discoveries. I was particularly pleased recently by the news that two neutron stars had been observed as they collided. The results in astrophysical terms were as predicted, and scientists couldn’t have been more pleased.

I can’t begin to explain exactly what all this means. Dark matter and black holes are mysteries to me–layperson terms for almost inconceivably complex mathematical equations.

Yet as a person who believes in a Creator God, I find these discoveries deeply satisfying. I know that the universe could just “happen” to exist. I just can’t believe that this all occurred by chance. “The heavens declare the glory of God…” —J. Douglas Ousley
