The heavens or this vast galaxy that we live in, is spinning at the incredible speed of 490,000 miles an hour (136 miles a second), and yet, even at this breakneck speed, our galaxy still needs 200 million years to make one rotation. It’s also been estimated that there are over one billion other galaxies just like ours in the universe, and some scientists say that the number of stars in creation is equal to all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the world! And yet, this complex sea of spinning stars functions with remarkable order and efficiency, so much so, that today, with human technological advancement, we can now send a man to the moon and predict with pin-point accuracy the exact time and place of his landing. All of these scientific facts support the biblical truth that order and creation are by design, and not somehow by chance or accident!
