How big is the universe? It is a question man has been asking since the beginning of time. The infinite size is staggering, and even that's putting it mildly. There are no words to describe the gargantuan size of the universe. With countless stars and galaxies we can only imagine what is out there.
Astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson states, "It would be inexcusably egocentric to suggest that we are alone in the cosmos, the chemistry is too rich to declare that, the universe is too vast." "There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand in all the beaches of the world." "There are more stars in the universe than all the sounds and words ever uttered by all humans who have ever lived, to say we are alone in the universe."
While researching Gliese 581c, considered an Ocean Planet or Water World, because it's purported to be 100% water, I remembered an interview by Michael Newton, Ph.D., author and hypnotherapist. Dr. Newton wrote a book entitled, "Destiny of Souls." In Destiny of Souls, 67 people recall their life between lives through Dr. Newton's personal work in spiritual hypnotherapy.
He was asked the question, "What about other worlds?" Dr. Tyson's response, "What is interesting about talking to people who have incarnated on other worlds is that What appeals to the particular souls about Earth may also be appealing to similar environments. For instance, when I'm talking to large audiences I ask the audience, how many people who have had dreams you can fly, about 75% will raise their hands. Then I will say, how many of you have had dreams where you can swim under water, and breathe, and that you're a very intelligent life form. What this indicates is (and our dreams do tell us a lot about our former experiences) that many people who have incarnated on earth, have possibly incarnated on flying and water worlds. ** See Michael Newton video above, go to 08:15 for Newton's response to the question, "How about other worlds?"
It is estimated that our own Milky Way galaxy contains around 200 billion stars (our own sun is a star). In addition, there are billions upon billions of other galaxies that contains billions and billions of stars. Evolutionists suggest that life could have evolved on countless planets, yet the evidence suggests that the earth is unique. Why is the universe so big then? See pages 372–375 of Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection.
KarlaTurner.org - Dr. Karla Turner was widely respected in the UFO community for her research on alien abduction. A scholar and professional educator, she earned a Ph.D. in Old English studies and taught at the university level in Texas for more than ten years. But in 1988, she and her husband and son endured a shocking series of experiences and recollections that forced them to recognize that they were all abductees. View Dr. Turner's video on alien abductions.
Kepler: A Search for Habitable Planets - The centuries-old quest for other worlds like our Earth has been rejuvenated by the intense excitement and popular interest surrounding the discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other stars. There is now clear evidence for substantial numbers of three types of exoplanets; gas giants, hot-super-Earths in short period orbits, and ice giants.
Amazing Universe Articles
Colossal Deception: A polyarchy is a system of government where power resides in the wealth of a nation, or government by many rulers. Those rulers are the Rockefeller, Rothschild, Morgan, Warburg, and a few others. Throughout the history of the world, the rich and powerful have dominated. Very few people have any control of their own governments. Most real power in the world is exercised by those people we do not elect. We are a long way from governing ourselves... continued
|Create the Reality of Your Experience: One must understand that your current reality is enmeshed in your past, the way you have treated people, and the way you treat yourself. The "Law of Reciprocity" plays a major role in the reality one has created, along with the fairness and spiritual equilibrium of the Universe... continued|
|Duped: Even as a kid, things had to make sense to me. You couldn't just tell me anything and I'd believe it, no matter what it was. Therefore, my quest for the truth regarding religion began at an early age. My parents were devout Christians and literally force-fed the religion to me and my brother... continued|
|Ecumenical Gangsters: The Antichrist is described as the deceiver. According to the bible, there will be a plethora of false teachings that will cause many to form a new ecumenical (of or relating to the worldwide Christian church) one world religion, that incorporates all the world's religions into a single united religious body. This "One World Religion" or "One World Church" or "One World Government," will be controlled by the "Second Beast" also known as "The False Prophet." Those drawn to this new theology will be deceived into believing Satan's lies, as taught by those who teach against Christ - Antichrist - and the False Prophet who deceives those who listen to his lies... continued|

|Galaxies, Religion, and the Vatican: This article introduces the infinite realm of our universe, antiquated religious beliefs, and where it all started. The author makes the attempt to point out why ancient ecclesiastical assumptions are not only foolish, but are collectively dangerous, regardless of the denomination. It's as if we are stuck in a time warp where religious discussion, and spiritual debate are concerned... continued|
|Ignorance Fallacy: With all due respect to Christianity, Islam, and its adherents, blindly following medieval, nonsensical beliefs, comes down to religious conditioning and flat out ignorance. Regardless of who you are, or what you do for a living, you are a sheep being led by wolves... continued|
|Moral Disobedience: Ever ask yourself, "What the hell are we doing?" No more of an elementary request could have been made than when the embattled Rodney King stated, "Can't we all just get along." Unfortunately the global, genocidal-like response is a resounding NO! Evidently, this nation and others have either no clue as to what our collective behavior is leading to, or simply does not care. It comes down to the eloquent pronouncement made by Dr. King several decades ago. He stated: Violence solves no social problems; it merely creates new and more complicated ones. Through the vistas of time a voice still cries to every potential Peter, "Put up your sword!" The shores of history are white with the bleached bones of nations and communities that failed to follow this command. If [victims of oppression] succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle for justice, unborn generations will live in a desolate night of bitterness and their chief legacy will be an endless reign of chaos... continued|
|Near Death Experience: Most of us have either heard about, experienced, or read about "Near Death Experiences," or NDE's. This is a fascinating phenomenon that even science and medicine has a hard time trying to figure out its origins. Are NDE's real or some type of altered hallucination? No one seems to know... continued|
|One and Done: The existence of human beings on this earth; in this three-dimensional reality, is not a one and done occurrence. If that were the case this life that we live would be meaningless; all for naught. Our primary reason for being is to learn, to experience, and to grow. This type of spiritual growth cannot be accomplished in one lifetime; as one race, one gender, and from one geographical and cultural perspective. Growth of the spirit or soul would be impossible if the classroom is limited to one paradigm from one rather narrow perspective... continued|
|Why Religion is not necessary: This article will attempt to point out how ridiculous and unnecessary religion is, and this pertains to all denominations. If you cannot read the contents with an open mind you may as well stop reading right here and select other, non-confrontational, less controversial articles on the Internet... continued|
|Wolves in Sheep's Clothing: Before I get started I will say that it's never good to kick a man when he's down. Generally, I'm the type of guy who cheers for the underdog. When Michael Vick was sentenced to two years incarceration for dog fighting, I told everyone that would listen, I rooted for Mike when he was up and I'll support him now that he's down." That's why I am thrilled to see Vick's maturation and the success he is having as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. I stated that to say this: this Lens is not about tearing down the beleaguered and embattled Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta, or the other televangelist listed. I put this composition together to get feedback and to provoke rational thinking from the good "Christian folk" who continue to support ministers who boldly misuse their flock while hiding behind the good book... continued|
|At the Bottom of the Well: I fell in a hole that turned out to be a Water Well. One of those Wells from days gone by used to access water in the ground. The Well sits in the middle of about half an acre. You've been warned to stay away, to be careful around this Well because there is no longer a canopy signifying that it's there. You only know it's there because of a few remnants left behind... continued|
|On Heaven and Hell: It's often stated in the Christian denomination as well as other religions that, if you have a relationship with God, Allah, Buddha, you will live forever in paradise, or in a state of nirvana, or perpetually residing in the presence of the Almighty. In other words, establish a bond with the Creator, during your life and you will go to heaven when you die. If you do not have that spiritual bond, at the time of your demise, you go to Hades or purgatory, and will face an eternal disconnection from the "Light." continued|
|Pursue the Perfect World: The world was designed to highlight our flaws as human beings. It was designed for us to grow as spiritual beings while living, feeling, and experiencing, in the flesh. The "Perfect World" is the dimension that lies just beyond our grasp. Some call it Nirvana, or Heaven, but it's the place most of us aspire to reside someday. Allow me to take you into Jetadieya's perfect world and show the reader how this spirit, maneuvering and navigating in the flesh, is able to easily create a near perfect existence... continued|
|To School, Through School, and Beyond: A mother drops her child off at school and prays that he has a productive day. She prays for her daughter's well-being; for her to learn, mature, and develop the necessary social skills needed in life. A father meditates on the welfare of his child. In some cases, he may even erroneously attempt to live vicariously through his son, a chip off the old block... continued|
