Earth would now appear to be just one of over 160 billion estimated planets in the milky way galaxy. With over 100000000000000000000000000000 galaxies each containing 160 billion planets, is it not a little arrogant to think that the earth is special and chosen by God?
From the kepler mission web page....
For those of us clinging to the notion that Earth is special, these and a raft of other recent exoplanet discoveries may be tough to stomach.
"We used to think that the Earth might be unique in our galaxy," study co-author Daniel Kubas, also of the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, said in a statement. "But now it seems that there are literally billions of planets with masses similar to Earth orbiting stars in the Milky Way."
> Only as arrogant as saying every human being is unique, yet they are. No two are alike. God may have made many, many planets with sentient life and set us all away from one another. He is the Omnipotent Creator of The Universe and He loves us all. Many parents make another baby after seeing how much they love their first child. Couldn't He have made other species in His image on planets far from here?
