If God Created Everything For Men, What Purpose Do Other Planets serve?. by ribbit: 10:05pm On Oct 07, 2015
The religious folks want us to believe that everything God created is for humans to enjoy and to make our stay more comfortable here on earth ... That's why we have some religious folks coming up with stuff like banana theory.

E.g, He created the light for day and moon for the night ..

He created plants and animals so we could have dominion over them and eat them so we won't die.

He created earth as accommodation ...
Etc etc..

Now the question is, what purpose do other planets in the galaxy serve?
How come bible or any ancient religious books never mentioned any of these planets until scientists started exploring ?
I mean, its like god doesn't want us to be go out of earth, that is why there is no oxygen in space.

god is pretty naive about the complexity of the outer space and other astronomical bodies of the universe.


imagine this


"and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind" Revelation 6:13


"How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! Isaiah 14:12


Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven which had fallen to the earth; and the key of the bottomless pit was given to him. Revelation 9:1


you have to first demonstrate that such god exists before asking whether other planetary bodies have any purpose.

you just have to look up at night to see many stars and planets for yourself.

Quoting what you do not have the wisdom to decipher....Smh! The Bible is a spiritual book; you can't understand it by carnal wisdom! I'll advice you to stop fighting it carnally!

Matthew 13:10-11

Then the disciples came to Jesus and asked, Why do You speak to the people in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Psalm 78:2

I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old.

Now you know why Jesus Christ taught his disciples in parables! Not everything is as it seems...

Only those who are spiritually alive would understand the things of the spirit of God... Walking zombies can't understand things like the scriptures you quoted!

You cannot be living in the delusion of atheism and expect to understand the things of the spirit of God. Come out of that delusion first and seek God; then when the contact is established, His word will make sense to you!

You just exposed the cosmological ignorance of biblical authors.

'David' claims there's a "firmament" stopping the stars and heavenly bodies falling into earth, as was explained in Genesis. Science has shown no such thing exists.

Secondly the moon is not a source of light as your bible mentions. And referring to the sun and moon as 'great' in reference to stars just shows that those guys were clueless.

Our whole solar system is like a tiny dot when you place it in a map of the observable universe. Those stars are bigger than our sun and planets.

Why and how would I seek that which does not exist?

You are entitled to believe anything you choose to. But when your personal beliefs contradict established facts about the universe, they become personal delusions.

If God created the universe simply for the Earth he wasted a lot of material on the project. There are an estimate 100 billion solar systems in our galaxy and over 1 million galaxies in the universe. That's a lot of material just to maintain one, healthy planet. Even if God is all-powerful, he is either a very poor planner or we have seriously misidentified our significance to him.

Even much more than that

According to the best estimates of astronomers there are at least one hundred billion galaxies in the observable universe.

[b]Lmoa. . . This universe is simply too big for any punny God who is busy running after Jews looking for the smell of burnt animals.

Creator of the universe has no idea the sun is the cause of day and night, has no idea the moon is no light, that the stars out there are just too far from the earth so cannot fall to earth like fig fruits, thinks the stars are as small as it appears in the sky and so thinks they can fall down into the earth..

This alleged creator surely needs a secondary education because it is just too primitive for our 21st century brains.

Wonder how people could swallow some punny knowledge of ancient primitive men and dub it the words of a creator of the universe.

Wonder how people could dub the action of gravity and matter in relation to space and time the work of some humanoid who got bored after existing forever and then said to himself "let there be light"

How come this creator of the universe do not know what galaxies and blackholes are. . . . Revering the constructs of primitive men is a shameful thing for 21st century beings this has bolted many to the dictates and ideologies of ancient men.

There's a reason thrs no oxygen out thr in space. That's because, our home is earth, that's whr we r meant to be.

Man travelling outa space is a reflection of the power God has given us when He created us in His image n breathe on us.

We shud not be surprised at how far man has gone with discovering and creating things, It's the same way God was moving to discover n finally created the earth.

The Bible told us in the beginning God created heaven and earth. Now we know He created man from dust of the earth, but where did He create heaven and earth from?

I am a Christian, I believe God is The Almighty, I know He exist No doubt, I also know thrs a lot beyond what we know as humans.

One thing I can guarantee is d fact dat d universe has always being govern by good and evil.
