Saturday, January 24, 2009 seen in His creation

I'm preaching on Romans 1:18-32 tomorrow. This cartoon is relevant.

Did you know that the human body is made up of between 75-100 billion cells, and if our DNA were able to be extracted and their miniscule fibers extended from end to end, the distance would be able to wrap around the equator 3.5 million times!

Did you know that if the distance between our sun and planet earth would be equal to the thickness of a sheet of paper (90 million miles), the distance between earth and the nearest star would be a pile of paper 60 feet tall. The diameter of the MilkyWay galaxy would be a pile of paper almost 300 miles tall, and to reach the edge of the known universe...a pile of paper 29,400,000 miles tall!

Did you know that if the sun were empty, 1,300,000 earths could fit inside of it? The star Antare could receive 64,000,000 suns. A star in the Hercules constellation could hold 100,000,000 stars the size of Antare in its interior. La Epsilon, the biggest known star, could fit several million stars the size of the Hercules star.

Oh, and this all must have just happened, right?

"For since the creation of the world, God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20

Have you seen the "How Great is Our God Tour" video? I forget the guy's name, but he does tours focusing on teens with this stuff. It's great.
