The extent of space is incredible
I just did some calculations on the relationship of earth to the sun that gave me a better perspective.

If the sun was a globe with a diameter of 1 foot, the earth would have a diameter of just under 1/8 of an inch and would be 107.5 feet away.

Just taking a break from religion. Smile

Those many cool perspective videos are addicting to watch. It is the small screen version of standing on the beach watching the waves roll in. The ocean puts me in my place.

Makes you wonder what function 99% of the Universe serves if it was intelligently designed. Is it to hold all the angels? Tongue

The cool thing is that the entire 45 minute video didn't even take me a second to watch...

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
