I have been watching a lot of programs lately about the Universe.  It seems our technology has gone very far and taught us so many things about this vast place we live!

He could well be the new Carl Sagan.  Professor Brian Cox, a British Physicist, has been enchanting me with his lessons and passion for the wonders of this world. (He has series called Wonders of the Universe, Wonders of the Solar System, Wonders of Life, among others.)  If you’ve never experienced his work, I strongly suggest you check him out.

It gets me thinking when you really listen to these scientists, it all seems to work within the spiritual theories I have been taught.  I have yet to hear (except in opinion) any kind of proof that God wasn’t behind all this.  My theory remains that it seems folly to think that all this magnificence happened on its own, without intelligence behind it.

As it is in the microcosm, so it is in the macrocosm is a very spiritual concept that fits perfectly with Dr. Cox’s explanations.  He has said that the stars, the planets, the sun, us, are all made of the same stuff.  That says to me that we are all one.

It’s very exciting when science backs up spirituality.  So often it’s just the words we chose that separate us.  I can’t venture to guess what the good Professor believes, but most scientists don’t confess to believe in the existence of God.  I wonder how they do that with such constant proof around them!
