India
August 26, 2007 1:57am CST
for those who like to ponder on GOD'S greatness HE keeps us showing HIS greatness in many wonderful ways. scientists have come accross a patch in the universe which has no matter in it whatsoever, no planets , no stars, no black holes, nothing. this patch of the universe is about 1 billion light years wide. 1 billion light years. heres a little example : it takes 7 and a 1/2 minute for a ray of light to tavel from the sun to earth, if this very ray of light kept travelling for 1 billion years thats how big this patch is. imagine.

that's interesting... but from what I can see scientists make discoveries every day... may be because that's theirs job?... but not all of the discoveries are true... cos even scientists can make mistakes... but what are you saying in the discussion seems very interesting and plausible:)

yes scientists can make mistakes, but the wonder of things are just amazing, even if its not empty in a place for 1 billion light years accross but still how big is the universe, how small are we yet some people are so proud and enjoy them selves in being wicked to othersand so on, when they should really ponder that in reality what are we ? souls with bodies to enjoy life and to meke things worthwhile for others. and dont they think that the ONE who has so much and every thing under HIS authority and has told us to be kind through HIs many Prophets and Books, will one day ask of what we did in our little time here. lots of love, prayers and good wishes, apple.

I see the universe as a big big, very big... actually the biggest sphere there is ... and where aver you'll go, in the universe... after a long journey, may times the size of the universe... we will arrive in a place where we have been before... but that's just a mortal point of view, influenced by Einstein:)... why? because he is the biggest, most "scientist" man... but it might not be quite like that... but if things are so big... and we are so little... then, by my little mind, there is also a positive side... and that's that we might not be alone in the universe:)... cos lonelinesses is quite ugly:P

yes, it is awful to be lonely but GOD is always there to depend on and who can take HIs place in the heart and mind and soul. it is mentioned in the Holy Scripture The Quran that GOD is THE LORD OF the worlds. which means there are other worlds too as you said there could be. what else can i say. apple.

dude, there are plenty of spots like that in the universe--they're called vacuums. now, if the universe really did work exactly like scientists like to think it does, all the vacuum's would have filled up with matter over the "trillions of years" that they like to think the universe is. basically, everybody keeps getting the wrong presumptions about everything. the universe is not trillions of years old-we know that because the vacuum's still exist, and vacuum's obviously must not always be filled every time there's matter around it. dude, i'm christian too, but you're seriously making a big deal out of a simple meal. sure, it's nice to notice and you don't want to take it for granted, but it's no reason to say, "here's all the answers we ever needed!"

thats not all the answer we need, we trust and that is an answer within our self. i was just amazed at the expance of this vacuum and it amazes one to realize what all exists and at what proportion and that nothing is by its sel, hence. and sometimes a simple meal can take you a little further. thanks dude for your response. great wishes, apple.

indeed is the greatness of GOD...scientist are always trying to prove that GOD doesn't exist and in return HE provides evidence of his inmense powers, to know this void is 200 megaparsecs larger than the previous one scientists had found, makes anyone who doesn't believe in GOD think twice about the possibilities...and as you know my dear friend GOD gives us the free will to choose our destiny, we either believe, change our way of living,spread his teachings and pray to GOD or we ignore all his signs and live a meaningless life in this earth.. I choose GOD's way ;) take care and GOD BLESS YOU

Hi apple :) Amazing isn't it? To try to grasp the numbers is beyond my imagination I think. Space was a fascination for me as a child. I read a book called Cosmos by a man named Carl Sagan when I was young. I feel in love with learning more about space and all these years later I am continually blown away by the vastness that surrounds us.

hello beautiful heart, hope you are fine. it is amaazing and wonderful to know that vastness that we are in and i am sure this vastness is fo a reason, an indication that we a are loved and treassured, a kind of sign. it is said thet the most beautiful sight in space is the globe that we exist in it seems to the looker as if we are specially protected. ofcourse we are or how else would we come this far. this is all so beautiful, so romantic on the part of the maker, so subtle. as if HE is smiling and saying "see it all and come , it's all for you, you will be amazed at what gifts i have in store for you,love" i am just waiting to get there and kneel and bow. so much more to say. what a thing this world, what a thing this heart. prayers for heaven for all of us, apple.

This space of nothingness you are describing is called "Dark Matter." I'm sure given time, it will become another solar system in our universe.

Hi Apple; Yeah....big claps for your good opening and closing of faith's speech. I have no further comment, just a small extension of it. That is why the more we explore the more closer we are to ourselves. The deeper we explore, the nearer going towards oneself. As only oneself can prove it. Thanks for your 'hearth's soothing' point of discussion.

I can't help being awed by God's immense power. The vastness of the universe alone and its perfection tells me that there must be a higher force and intelligence to keep it all together. I just boggles my mind to think of all the wonders of our universe and I know, so much more are still undiscovered and mysteries to unravel.

yes ms cdparazo you are good. i really like the clean energy i feel from your bold writing. GOD is there. and i feel He guides them who are ready to submit to HIS love and want to know more about HIM. who else can make anything ? who else can make everything ? who else can make the sensible you.

Well, the truth is, we don't know what's out there. it may contain something that is beyond our current capability to recognize, capture, analyze, or even detect. it's science. it's data gathering. I find it curious that the religious right conveniently use scientific fact to state their faith, but then will claim that other scientific facts are fake, or are lies. people - don't mix science and religion. Religion is based on FAITH. Science is based on FACT. You can't mix those two things.

one checks out facts and then goes ahead with one's faith. if 2+2=4 then 4+4 must be equals 8. without facts faith cannot develop. one can not have faith unless one logically checks it. and i wold say that without science there is no religion. religion is science of higher things which can be reached by faith and discoveries. thatis why we call life an amaging discovery too perhaps.lol. if you read unabridged books of religion you will come accross a lot of science in it. in order to understand the truth and reality we have to understand religion from a scientific point of view. say for example, yoga, yoga is a science of the body, saying the 5 times prayer, fasting etc science can never be seperate from religion. and faith is the "waiting" for the answers and the truth. GOD BlesS, apple.

I like learning about the universe and thinking about everything that could be out there. It blows my mind to even think about how vast the universe is; beyond all human comprehension. The universe is truly an amazing feat in itself.
• India

it is wonderful to learn about the universe, space and time and things related to it, i feel. i also feel it enhances your mind's capacity in some way, it is like this, if you imagine light leaving the sun and travelling towards earth and reaching earth in about 8 minutes, speed of light is about 300,000 kilometers a second, (it takes 1.2 seconds for light from moon to travel to earth) it somehow open the understanding of distance and vastness in one's mind, one can go on thinking about the distance light could cover in 8 billion years, i think thats how far scientist have been able to reach in terms of the vastness of the universe and no way it is the end of it, this really is good for the mind. love, apple.

Yes everything is revelant! The atoms that make up your arm are as scattered as the planets in the universe. And we think of our bodies as being solid! You were thinking of upsetting the Applecart weren't you Ronnie?
• India
27 Aug 07
you are right about atoms, the inner world as vast as space perhaps and the workings and the coordination, another sign for thinkers and lovers of GOD ALMIGHTY. i gathered all the apples and am still. love, one small apple.

No human can fully fathom the magnificence of God. It blows my mind at what God is capable of. I can never completely comprehend it. It's sad that not everyone realizes such awesome work was done by our Creator, and not by a random process or big bang.
• India
26 Aug 07
it does blow the mind away it does and it does. you are also also right about not every one agrees to acknowledging the fact that such awsome work was done by our CREATOR and not by random process or big bang, even if that happened how can a machine be operated without the operator, the electricity and the amker of the machine. thankyou ambiepam, you are a real maam. love, apple.
