    The awesomeness of our beautiful planet! Only an infinite God could have created such a beautiful place as planet Earth,and He created it for our enjoyment.Up there it is inconceivable that there could be so much strife down here. But it is our sad reality. I will be glad for the day when the Prince of Peace, Jesus comes to rule and reign in His Kingdom. Then it will be how He wanted it to be from the beginning.

    pls. do not bring Jesus into this. Jesus had no idea our planet was a sphere. For him it was flat.

    suresh, you will in no doubt confess one day that Jesus ( who is the Word of Almighty God made flesh) created the planet earth which you and I live on today. You already know deeply within you that there is a greater being (the true and living God) who is solely responsible for the creating everthing you can see and don’t see. Even if you do’t believe in God the Father and Jesus Christ his son at least acknwoledge the creation itself. Oh Suresh don’t deceive yourself any longer get a bible and read Genesis about the creation of the heavens and earth. Whether you believe or not it is still the Truth and it will never change.

    Elle, try reading a basic book on geology and you will realise that Earth evolved over 4.6 billion years to todays planet. I love Jesus but lets join 21st century thinking, heh?

    Who created god? Where did God come from? How could God exist in nothing, which really would not really be nothing, since God would be there, and thus, something? Stop putting religion on random things for space. Science video on youtube, just another religious nutjob arguing over God created us with no evidence other than “THE BIBLE AND SINCE I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS, THEREFORE GOD!!!!!”

    SCIENCE CAN INTRODUCE THEORIES…THEY CAN’T FIND THE LOC NESS MONSTER, BUT THEY SAY IT EXISTS; THEY CAN’T FIND BIG FOOT, BUT THEY SAY HE/SHE/IT EXISTS;GRANDMA SAID THEY NEVER LANDED ON THE MOON, EVEN ASTRONAUTS MADE DEATH BED CONFESSIONS…EVEN WITHOUT THE BIBLE OR RELIGION…IF THERE IS NO GOD WHY DOES THE MAKE UP OF OUTER SPACE APPEAR DUPLICATED INSIDE THE MICROSCOPIC ELEMENTS OF MAN. IF WE CAME FROM MONKEYS WHY DON’T WE STILL COME FROM THEM?

    MOST PEOPLE WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN A SUPREME BEING WHETHER HE IS CALLED GOD, JEHOVAH, YAWEH OR ALLAH SEEM TO BE MAD AT THOSE OF US WHO DO BELIEVE. IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THE FACT OF YOUR OWN CREATION THEN IT EXPLAINS WHY ONE DOCTOR SAID DEATH BY MEDICINE IS INTENTIONAL. GOD PUT US HERE AND MAN SAYS THERE ARE TOO MANY OF US…HMMM? I HAVE TRAVELLED QUITE A BIT AND I HAVE SEEN MILES AND MILES OF LAND WITH NO ONE ON IT. HECK, THERE ARE PLACES THAT CAN ONLY BE GOTTEN TO BY BOATS OR PLANES OR HELICOPTERS.

    HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN ISLANDS WITH ANIMALS ON THEM, YET NO HUMAN FOOT PRINT? HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE VASTNESS OF SPACE WHICH CAN NOT BE CHARTED AND STARS [OR WHAT WE CALL STARS] THAT CAN’T BE COUNTED?

    THE BIBLE SOMEONE SAID IS B.I.B.L.E. [BASIC INSTRUCTION BEFORE LEAVING EARTH]. IN THE INSTRUCTION IT TALKS ABOUT GOD LOVING MAN ABOVE ANGELS. THAT WOULD MAKE US PRETTY-DARN SPECIAL. AND HOW WE GET ALONG IS DEPLORABLE. MAN WANTS TO DISLIKE ANOTHER GOD CREATED HUMAN [HUE-MAN] BEING BECAUSE THEY ARE SHADED DIFFERENT OR THEY SPEAK A LANGUAGE NATIVE TO THEIR SURROUNDINGS AND DIFFERENT FROM YOURS.

    EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD LIVE ON A FARM, SHOULD TRAVEL TO A SO-CALLED THIRD WORLD COUNTRY TO SEE WHAT POVERTY REALLY LOOKS LIKE AND SPEND TIME ON THE STREETS HOMELESS. IT MAY THEN BE EASIER TO LOVE THY NEIGHBOR THE WAY THE CREATOR INTENDED.

    OH, AND BE ABLE TO SEE THE EARTH FROM SPACE. SPINNING THOUSANDS OF MILES PER HOUR AND YET MOST OF US CAN WALK A CITY BLOCK AND NO FEEL A THING. BEAUTIFUL BEYOND MEASURE, UNDUPLICATED ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE UNIVERSE.

    I LOVE ALL KINDS OF MUSIC, CLASSICAL, COUNTRY, RAP, CELTIC…AND I LOVE THE PEOPLE GOD CREATED. I AM NOT ALWAYS HAPPY WITH THE WAY THEY ACT – AND YET I HAVE LEARNED THAT ON MOST DAY I CAN BE AT ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE. I BELIEVE THIS IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

    I CAN CALL ON HIM LIKE ANYONE WHOM I WOULD CALL ‘FRIEND’…NOT JUST WHEN THINGS SEEM TO BE GETTING READY TO HIT THE FAN. I CAN LOOK UP AND SEE A SKY, SOMETIMES CLEAR AND OTHER TIMES WITH BEAUTIFUL CLOUDS. I CAN APPRECIATE THE SNOW, THE RAIN AND THE SUN. THE MOUNTAINS AND THE BEACH.

    I DON’T FEEL THAT LIFE HAS HANDED ME LEMONS, IT HAS TAUGHT ME TO ASK, “WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO LEARN FROM THIS.”

    THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO ARGUE WHAT IS OR ISN’T IN THE GOOD BOOK AND HAVE NEVER PICKED IT UP. FEARFUL THAT THERE LIFE MAY BE AFFECTED IN SOMEWAY THAT THEY CAN’T PUT THERE FINGER ON. YET, THEY MAY FIND OUT THAT THE LESSONS THAT WERE LEARNED WHEN THE BOOK WAS ORIGINALLY EXPERIENCED BARE WITNESS TO WHY THEY HAVEN’T FOUND THEIR WAY OUT OF DEBT, DEPRESSION, SUICIDE, FEAR, INDECISION AND INTO THE MARVELOUS LIGHT.

    STRANGELY ENOUGH YOU CAN EXPERIENCE IT WITHOUT STEPPING ONE FOOT INTO A CHURCH. JUST A YOU CAN ROOT FOR YOUR TEAM FROM THE COUCH WITHOUT GOING TO THE STADIUM TO SEE THE GAME LIVE, YET, WHEN YOU DO AND YOU CAN, YOU SEEM TO ENJOY IT MORE.

    WITH TECHNOLOGY WE ARE SEPARATED AND CONNECTED…HAVE YOU EVER GONE TO A MOVIE AND THE THEATRE IS EMPTY AND ENJOYED THE MOVIE AS MUCH AS THE ONE YOU WENT TO AND SHARED IN A FULL THEATRE WITH STRANGERS?

    I AM NOT MAD AT YOU, IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE…I WILL JUST ADD YOU TO MY PRAYER LIST. I HAVE SEEN HOW PRAYING FOR OTHERS, WITH OTHERS AND HAVING PRAYERS PRAYED ON MY BEHALF HAS BROUGHT ME THROUGH MANY THINGS.

    IT IS SAID THAT ENERGY IS, WAS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. GOD IS ENERGY. AND WHEN YOU LET HIM IN INSTEAD OF THE DEVIL [GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION] THEN THE ANSWERS YOU SEEK CAN BE REVEALED. NOT HOCUS POCUS…

    WHERE DID THE OCEAN, THE FISH, THE DOLPHINS, THE TREES, THE BEES, THE FOWL OF THE AIR COME FROM…NOT FROM THE SCIENCE LAB.

    THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS RELIGIOUS NUTJOBS, THERE ARE BELIEVERS AND NON-BELIEVERS. THERE ARE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES AND HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS. THERE ARE MEN AND WOMEN IN PRISON WHO WERE IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE TIME OF THE CRIME AND FOR LACK OF THE RESOURCES TO PUT ON AN ADEQUATE DEFENSE ARE INCARCERATED AND THERE ARE MEN AND WOMEN WHOM WANT TO ROAM THE WORLD HURTING PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THEY CAN AND WHEN ALL ELSE HAS FAILED THEY NEED TO BE IN PRISON.

    MAY THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE WATCH OVER YOU AND YOURS.

    Thank you for these beautiful fotos. Our Planet Earth is so amazing. Hopefully, we have put most of the pieces together, so human kind can have a lovely future. I did make my commitment to the “Good Side”, when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior, in his philosophy, teachings, and miraculous spiritual presence TODAY, when I was eleven years old. The Good Side has had a good run so far. We need to try to bring together other points of view, so we can forge ahead. Planetary pollution and over population are daunting problems. Violence, war, and ignorance, and Evil, are threats. Hopefully we can give peace and love a better chance.

    don replied:

    why is it that the concept of god has to be qualified with the adverb living? shouldn’t that be apparent? or is uncertainty trying to strengthen its conviction through abstracts.

    This is excitingly frightening and also very mysterious. Only our Almighty God can do this. Its really amazing. Never imagined it was like this from outer space.

    the vastness of the universe is already mapped out in our brains, for our brains are made of the exact stuff that the universe is comprised of therefor giving us a continual link to all things. some call this string theory, call it what you wish, its just life.

    I always truely admire and thank God for creating this beautiful planet earth and intelligent human being, to take care of it. I think all of us must pray God every day and every moment for keeping the gravitational force on the planet earth intact 24/7… Just imagine what will happen if it stops woking for a second only!!…
