I was asked this by someone who is pondering the faith.
He asked me, if humanity is so important in regard to the universe and we are made in Gods image, why did God make such an almost infinitely enormous universe where we are (earth) is nothing more than an insignificant speck. Reminded me of that old pale blue dot picture Voyager 1 took some years back and Carl Sagan made a comment on it.
Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
Anyways, does anyone have any way to respond to this?
