Just Finished watching Discovery Channel’s “Curiosity? Did God create the Universe?” Stephen Hawking says god doesn’t exist because nothing existed before the big bang even time so therefore God doesn’t exist. Mostly the dvd explores how life on earth could end everything from Alien invasion, Asteroids, Ark storms and they gave an example where northern California had over 30 days straight of an inch of rain an hour, I don’t remember the year. Earth quakes and volcanoes, the yellow stone super volcano is a bit disturbing to me and it has been more active of late.. Could lay waste to all of north America.
At the end there is bonus feature where several physicists and cosmologist and one “theologian” discuss various things.
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints I’m thinking to myself and now you, that they have it all wrong. No where in scripture do I see God say he created the whole universe. I do see where he has said he created the Earth and many other worlds. Abraham chapter 3 of the Pearl of Great Price is a fascinating chapter.
11 Thus I, Abraham, atalked with the Lord, face to face, as one man talketh with another; and he told me of the works which his hands had made;
12 And he said unto me: My son, my son (and his hand was stretched out), behold I will show you all these. And he put his hand upon mine eyes, and I saw those things which his hands had made, which were many; and they multiplied before mine eyes, and I could not see the end thereof.
19 And the Lord said unto me: These two facts do exist, that there are two spirits, one being more intelligent than the other; there shall be another more intelligent than they; I am the Lord thy God, I am amore intelligent than they all.
20 The Lord thy God sent his angel to adeliver thee from the hands of the priest of Elkenah.
21 I dwell in the midst of them all; I now, therefore, have come down unto thee to declare unto thee the aworks which my hands have made, wherein my bwisdom excelleth them all, for I crule in the heavens above, and in the earth beneath, in all wisdom and prudence, over all the intelligences thine eyes have seen from the beginning; I came down in the beginning in the midst of all the intelligences thou hast seen.
22 Now the Lord had shown unto me, Abraham, the aintelligences that were organized before the world was; and among all these there were many of the bnoble and great ones;
23 And God saw these souls that they were good, and he stood in the midst of them, and he said: These I will make my rulers; for he stood among those that were spirits, and he saw that they were good; and he said unto me: Abraham, thou art one of them; thou wast achosen before thou wast born. 24 And there stood aone among them that was like unto God, and he said unto those who were with him: We will go down, for there is space there, and we will take of these materials, and bwe will make an earth whereon these may cdwell;
25 And we will aprove them herewith, to see if they will bdo all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them;
26 And they who akeep their first bestate shall be added upon; and they who keep not their first estate shall not have glory in the same kingdom with those who keep their first estate; and they who keep their second cestate shall have dglory added upon their heads for ever and ever.
27 And the aLord said: Whom shall I bsend? And one answered like unto the Son of Man: Here am I, send me. And canother answered and said: Here am I, send me. And the Lord said: I will dsend the first.
28 And the asecond was angry, and kept not his first bestate; and, at that day, many followed after him.
Genesis 1: 1-2 1 In the abeginning bGod ccreated the dheaven and the eearth.
2 And the earth was without aform, and void; and bdarkness was upon the face of the deep. And the cSpirit of God dmoved upon the face of the waters.
