Divine Creation and the Fertile Universe

The Universe is almost 14 Billion years old, and today there are hundreds of billions of Galaxies, each having hundreds of billions of stars. Creation is a big place! 

Our Sun is a third-generation star, 4 and a half billion years old, and its Solar System of planets includes our home, the Earth, on which intelligent life has evolved.  

We will explore the processes that God allows for life to emerge - The Laws of Nature - 

      * Our Laws of Nature 

      * The Laws of Nature as they actually function 

Because the Universe seems to be finely tuned for the existence of life  -  the Anthropic Principle – we will discuss the search for intelligent life elsewhere, and why we might be alone in Creation.  The search for Extraterrestrial intelligence at this point is purely philosophical! 

So, what has God been doing all this time? 

God allows Creation to grow through the process of Evolution, whether it be stars, humans, or any other life-form. 

God did not “design” Creation but has given it the “Free will” to evolve into what it will be. 

Throughout our discussion we will refer to the philosophical concept of a Cosmic Christ which is a view of Christology that considers the extent of Jesus Christ's concern for the cosmos.
