Our Expanding Universe
"...that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain..." Isaiah 40:22
- Most astronomers today believe that the universe is expanding. (In fact, secular scientist once believed that the universe was eternal and unchanging.)
- In the 1920's, astronomers discovered that virtually all clusters of galaxies appear to be moving away from all other clusters; this indicates that the entire universe is expanding.
- You can think of this like points on a balloon. As the balloon is inflated, all points move father away from each other. If the entire universe was being stretched out, the galaxies would all be moving away; and that is what they actually appear to be doing.
- It is interesting that the Bible recorded the notion of an expanding universe thousands of years before secular science came to accept the idea.
- "...who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain" Psalm 104:2
