Why Do You Think God Created All The Other Planets Aside The Earth? by vybzkartel: 7:32pm On Aug 14
In your estimation, what for?
Is it for a future inhabitation?
Or a previous habitation?

The number of galaxies in the universe is largely unknown to humans. In fact, scientists speculate that there may be an infinite number of galaxies. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is estimated to host about 100 billion planets most of which orbit a star. In the near past, astronomers have discovered hundreds of planets in our galaxy, some of whom exhibit some Earth-like characteristics. Our solar system comprises of the sun, eight planets and their moons, and several small solar system bodies.
Previously, Pluto was considered to be the ninth planet in the Solar System. However, in 2006, Pluto was demoted to the status of a "dwarf planet". This was due to more concrete, strict definitions of what a planet is. In order to constitute as a planet, an object must not only orbit the Sun, but must also have large enough mass that gravity can create a rounded shape. A potential planet must also be the most important object in its "neighborhood". As Pluto has close neighbors, it no longer counts as a planet in its own right.
The planets in the Solar System are as follows:
Mercury
Venus
Earth
Mars
Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune

Well, God did not creat anything without a purpose, the real function of the other planets can only be answere by him. But researchers believed that other planets in our solar system have these functions:
1they protect the earth from other planetary bodies e.g meteorites that may come across our solar system
2 they help planet earth to maintain a particular position in the solar system
3 they protect planet earth from certain radiation that may affect we human on earth.

ACCORDING TO SCIENCE, THERE ARE BILLIONS OF PLANETS OUT THERE.

SO YOU MEAN.. GOD CREATES EARTH. CREATES METEORITES AND "CERTAIN RADIATION". THEN CREATES BILLIONS OF OTHER PLANETS TO PROTECT JUST EARTH FROM METEORITES AND "CERTAIN RADIATION".


THERE'S A NEED TO PROTECT THE EARTH FROM METEORITES AND CERTAIN RADIATION. WHY? BECAUSE THEY ARE BAD?

SO WHY DID GOD CREATE THEM? ONLY TO CREATE OTHER PLANETS SO THAT HE CAN SAVE US FROM THEM.. cheesy

The word "God" is more like a general title. It encompasses a whole lot of beings. As for the planets,it's either the inhabitants wiped themselves or were wiped out/mass migrated to another or vibrate on another frequency,so we can't see them like the myriads of beings cohabiting earth with us.

. Some radiations maybe bad to planet earth because there is living things here, but other planets may need the same radiation for their existence: finally only God himself can answere many questions regarding universe.

You have tried but your explanation is not scientific and a lot of holes can be found in it.

Your best line of thought is to see the universe as a BIG garden or BIG artwork. On the overall, beautiful but at pixel level looks unconnected and random.

Let them look at the galaxies and say it isn't beautiful AND it has served its purpose BEAUTY for the owner. If there are functional purposes, it is beyond science at this point for there is Physically extremely feeble links between the earth and the other planets (not to talk of other galaxies)

you said my explanations do not have prove, but have you wander some asteroids and meteorites do not find their way to planet earth? The fact is Jupiter has gravitational force stronger than that of planet earth so, it can pull any space asteroids or meteorites to itself rather allowing it to come to earth: not only Jupiter does tthat, but any other planet in our solar system that has force of gravity stronger than earth. If this doesn't prove scientific to you enough then I can't argue with you any more.

Hello there.

It's an interesting question. To begin with, the Bible says almost nothing about the vast universe out there. At least, it says nothing in detail about it, so that when we attempt to give answers to questions like yours, we ought to be careful to avoid making unwarranted speculations.

The Scriptures say:

And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day...
...And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.
Genesis 1:6-8, 14-19 ESV

and

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
Psalm 19:1-6 KJV

and

“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades
or loose the cords of Orion?
Can you lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season,
or can you guide the Bear with its children?
Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?
Can you establish their rule on the earth?"
Job 38:31-33 ESV

There are two things that we can draw out of the above passages:

1. The Universe outside the Earth exists to teach us of the Glory and Power of God. Its immensity and complexity are witnesses to His Incredible Ability, the limits of which are impossible to imagine. One Who made such a great thing must be worthy of our awe. This in turn serves to humble us and force us to acknowledge our own unworthiness, because in addition to being sinful creatures, we are also incredibly arrogant creatures.

2. The talk of "rule" in Genesis and Job suggests that the operations of the earth are affected significantly by the other things in the universe. It may be difficult for us to figure out exactly how some distant galaxy or star has anything to do with our little planet, but that would also be the point of the Job passage. We cannot fully comprehend everything God has done in creating the universe (Ecclesiastes 8:17). But if God says that the heavens maintain some kind of rule over the earth, we can take that to be true, even if we don't know how it is true. We do know that the Sun's gravity keeps us in this fixed path that we always travel around it so that life can be sustained on this planet. That, at least, is gracious evidence of such rule, not to mention the cycles of day and night and month and year that are all possible because of the Sun's position and the Moon's orbit around the earth.

There is at least one other thing that we can say about the vast universe outside the earth: it separates us from God's Holy Abode in the Third Heaven, so that we are not destroyed because of our sinfulness. You can see this in the Genesis passage and in Hebrews 4:14; 9:11, 24-25, as well as in Revelation 4:6. The vast stretch of space is actually part of a double impenetrable (from the human point of view) barrier to the Third Heaven (the temporary Seat of God's Rule over all Creation), with the other part being the upper waters that were divided from the waters below in Genesis. It enables us, as sinful as we are, to have the time required to make our choices about God without being destroyed by exposure to His Unclad Glory.

So, while we can take for granted that there is no other intelligent physical life anywhere in the Universe, because mankind exists as a resource for replacing the angels that rebelled in God's Family, we can also take for granted that the other planets in the universe along with their stars and what other phenomena there are out there are part of the furniture of human physical existence. That is, they are part of one harmonious whole that was created so that human beings can exist and make an eternal choice about God.

This does not mean that there is nothing more to be known about the universe that surrounds us, but it does mean that we know enough to fulfill our purpose for existing in this body for now. Besides, this physical universe will eventually be destroyed and a new one made for perfect righteousness where believers will live with the Lord God for all eternity. So, getting too hung up on it is not a very good idea.

“The bible is evidence of a god.” Saying that the bible is evidence of god, is like saying that the Charles Darwin book, Origin of Species, is evidence for evolution. It’s not. A book is never evidence. It may point out the evidence and explain how it got there, (which the bible fails to do) but it’s not evidence.

Where did you learn this from?

His number 1 is kind of correct. (The gas giants) Saturn/Jupiter's (mostly jupiter) gravity serve as a large attraction to most asteroid/meteor breakout in the solar system, minimizing the amount of such bodies that make it into the inner solar system - Without this, life wouldn't exist on earth or at least life as we know it.

The scientist and cosmologist Carl Sagan once referred to it in his book as Shepherd planet. It literally act as a protective shield for the inner solar system.

His number 2 is also correct. The resonant orbits created by the gravitational pull of Jupiter not only helps in the case of number one, but also helps stabilize the earth's orbit as his number two posits

Him arguing that it was intentionally put there for this purpose though would be another thing all together but he is correct to assert that Jupiter as a matter of fact serves this purpose.

Rev 4:11:

The Universe (including all the galaxies) was created to beautify the emptiness of space all for God's glory. They may not directly impact the earth but they glorify God in their beauty and splendor.


The moon other than the sun has the greatest gravitational influence on the earth. The earth can do without all the other planets in our solar system and nothing serious would have changed on the earth.

Your argument of Jupiter attracting asteroids os possible but the probability is extremely small. The solid angle of the earth covered by Jupiter is not even up to 0.1% of the exposed area of the earth.

If you remove other planets from this solar system, the earth as you know it, is over.

It will be pretty much destroyed.

About your statement's effect on me, please don't be troubled about that. I wasn't annoyed. I was actually just pointing something out.

We all know some things for sure and are not worried about sounding sure about them. That we sound sure about them does not mean that we are being arrogant, even if other people disagree with us on those things.

I have no doubts at all that the Bible is perfectly true. I trust it completely. I stand on its authority to say everything that I say. That does not mean that I'm arrogant. It just means that I trust the Bible to be completely reliable and accurate. If you disagree with me, it does not make me wrong. It just means that you disagree with me.

As I always say, each person's beliefs are entirely their right and responsibility to choose. I don't begrudge you the right to have any given feeling about the Bible. What I always tell everyone is that it is God that you will eventually answer to, not me. If I'm wrong and you're right, then that is no big deal at all.

As for my first response, I really mean it, and I am quite happy to see that even though you are an atheist, you do recognize that you are not perfect. None of us is. I certainly am not. But that is why I am a Christian. I am leaning very heavily on the Perfection of Jesus Christ for my own peace and for rights of access to God Who is Perfection itself. If I could persuade you at all to be as I am, I would. But each person is free and responsible to make their own choice, so I have no intention to impose anything on you.

Hmmm, it's actually not really true.. The idea that Jupiter acts as some sort of planetary protector ( though its was widely held until a couple of years ago), is strictly not correct. Like most things in life, the reality is more complex than was previously believed.

Does it help? sometimes yes... Mostly when it comes to long period comets. But when dealing with asteroids within our solar system, its gravitational tugs can actually cause more harm than good.

Other than that, we truly are chilling in a cozy neighborhood in the cosmos. Like u said earlier, if we remove one planet from our solar system,life on earth would be alot different from what we know..
