Sitting in my comparative religions class, we were covering the early history of the jewish people. God is constantly intervening on their behalf, or punishing them, or telling them to massacre a specific group of people. But this made me wonder, while god is busy taking an extreme personal interest in the lives and fortunes of his little creation, what else is going on in the universe? I mean, the entire bible is focused just on events on earth.
The entire “world” of the bible is restricted to earth and the stars that happen to be visible to the naked eye given our location in the galaxy. But this is only a meer fraction of existence! The galaxy is so incredibly vast, more so than primitive people could ever possibly imagine.
Did you ever stop to wonder why the bible and god seems to be restricted to this small space? That it might be because that small space is all that was know to the people who invented god and wrote the bible? When god is commanding Isaac to kill his son, what’s happening in the Andromeda galaxy? Or the Spindle Galaxy? Here’s a list of other galaxies out there. Entire galaxies!!!! And these are just the ones we know about. What was god doing then? Why aren’t any of these mentioned in the bible?
