God of the Universe, Revealed

04_antennae .jpg


If Advent and its meditations and prayers for the coming of Christ aren't quite your thing, then perhaps you will derive a similar degree of pleasure from the breathtaking Hubble Space Telescope Advent Calendar, assembled by Alan Taylor of The Boston Globe.

As for myself, I can't help but marvel at the fact that God, who revealed Himself so majestically in the heavens, also chose to beget Himself as a lowly Son of Man, so that mankind, a thoroughly insignificant creature when compared to the vastness of Creation, could be reconciled with Him and receive an abundant and everlasting life.

(h/t The Anchoress)

Spectacular! Looking at the images one does indeed marvel at the glory of God. Thank you for the reminder of the reason for the season. A Merry Christmas to you and yours, and a blessed and successful New Year to you, as well.

Welcome to Wizbang! I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Matt:

Merry Christmas to you. Great post!! Just think, there are many poor, deluded souls out there that think all of that beauty and majest happened purely by accident. HA!

May the Lord bless you and your family as we celebrate the birth of his son Jesus.

Are we agnostics permitted to appreciate the wonders of the universe without getting into an argument about the existence of an artist?

Yes, Jay Tea, you are so permitted. ;-)

Merry Christmas to you, Jay. Keep up the good work at your new digs.

Why do agnostics/atheists get into a snit when a person of faith dares to publicly express that faith?!

Yes. You are free to not believe every bit as much as I am free to beleive. Believe or not, those are some incredibly beautiful, inspiring pictures.

Mike:

The Heavens are there for everyone to enjoy. I believe that their aesthetic beauty is the greatest of all natural wonders, regardless of how each of us believes the whole thing came about.

Brian:

If you're going to appreciate the beauty of these photos, you should understand that they were filtered and colored by a NASA employee, who decides which wavelengths of light to include, and with what color and intensity to represent them. That person gets some credit for the "aesthetics".

How about when they express that faith by calling all others "poor, deluded souls"? Is that snit-worthy?

LaMedusa:

Michael, we are the ones God created these spectacular images for, as hard as that is for some people to believe. We are that precious in his sight. And as dismal as the events of this earth appear right now:

"The Kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ."

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"Glory to God in the highest and, on earth, peace to men of good will."
Luke 2:14
I pray for my fellow Wizbangers to have peace of heart and mind at this special time, and have a very Merry Christmas.
p.s. I refuse to be "politically correct" and say Happy Holiday. It is my fervent desire to keep Christ in Christmas.
