The NASA owned Kepler space observatory has focused on one small patch of star-studded sky for the past six years. NASA claims it has identified 4,696 rocky planets of roughly similar size of the earth that orbit sun-like stars, and have surfaces suitable for sustaining water and life. NASA believes the Milky Way galaxy, may contain over a billion of these earth-like planets. They have no idea if any of them contain life.
All one billion of these planets are covered in the first sentence in the Bible. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” If there is intelligent life on one of these rocky orbs, be sure of one thing. It is not a surprise to God. —Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
