    To show God's creative power? For His enjoyment and ours?

    Specifically to glorify Him.

    If you know a little about the physics involved you will understand that the constants that make the universe inhabitable require the universe to be the size it is. Would one of our experts explain this for seanD, I do not have the expertise to explain it.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Nah, I gotcha. The vastness of the universe is a necessity for it being finely tuned that it is, which is necessary for it's inhabitability.

    could there be other people on other planets?

    Or heck, since we will live FOREVER, it is nice to have a really big place to explore. I plan on building a starship and go exploring for a few billion years.

    That would be awesome.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    What's a pirate without a ship? Gotta have a Jacuzzi, a place to store my dark chocolate. I have to have room for my crew.

    I didn't say you couldn't have one. I just said you won't need one.

    Why? Would we be able to go through space without one? Like a certain fictional character?



    That would be a very good reason not to have glorified bodies yet.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!
