I've seen this before, but it still amazes me at how insignificant we are in such a large universe.

The biggest one is the 15th brightest star in the sky to give it even more perspective.

"Just remember that you're standing on a planet that evolving,
Revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It's orbiting at 19 miles a second,
So it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see,
Are moving at a million miles a day,
In an outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour,
Of a galaxy we call the Milky Way.

Our galaxy itself contains 100 billion stars,
It's 100,000 light years side to side,
It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light years thick,
But out by us it's just 3,000 light years wide.

We're 30,000 light years from galactic central point,
We go around every 200 million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions,
In this amazing and expanding universe..."

Isn't it amazing that God created all of this in 6 days a little over 6000 years ago?

It's pretty ridiculous to assume that anything with the size and the wonder of the universe and the things in it just happened by chance and that there is no higher power at work.

I'm not talking about religion -- I'm talking about the things that science can't explain away.
