I’ve been watching Morgan Freeman talking about the Universe. As you know, we all learned in grammar school that nothing is larger than the Universe. It contains all of the galaxies, which in turn contain solar systems, which in turn contains planets, etc. Big bang theorists believe that the Universe is expanding constantly. They refer to it as “Inflation”. But, if the universe is the largest of all things, what is it expanding into? If it expands into nothing, than nothing must have some property that permits the expansion. Therefore, nothing is something, not nothing. Now some theorists believe there my be multi-verses, which expand and contract on themselves. But, doesn’t that assume that what we thought of as the all encompassing universe is just another cog in the ever expanding nature of all things? To me the answer is simple – God. Its always fascinating and wise to try to better understand God.
