How Did Humans Come Into Existence? Are There Other Creatures On Various Planets?

Humans came into existence through our loving Creator. It is vitally important that we start from the book of Genesis chapter one. God’s word the Bible describes beautifully how Jehovah God “created the heavens and the eartth.“ Our Grand Creator is so magnificent that he did not literally have to come down to create but allow his power or active force to fulfill the developments of grass, light and darknes, division of water, plants, luminaries, living creatures that swarmed the seas, wild animals, according to their kinds based on Genesis 1:1-25. Who would rule over these spectacular creations? In Genesis 1:26-27 a definitive answer was given, “Then God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.’ And God went on to create man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.” (Study Bible of NWT of the Holy Scriptures) God’s firstborn Son Jesus Christ was right by his father’s side as “...’master worker’ to create everything and everyone else”—Proverbs 8:30,31, Colossians 1:15, 16.

Why is this issue relevant concerning mankind’s origin? Every Bible reader understands where and how man was created. These subjects were addressed on the news series CBS This Morning with anchorman Tony Dokoupil. He interviewed Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson one of the world’s most brilliant scientifist. Such questions from viewers were answeredsuch as; “How did life begin on planet earth? And are we alone in the universe?” With his latest book entitled, Cosmic Queries explanations were given through laughter and to the best of Tyson’s intellectual ability. Tony went on to ask, “Let’s stick with the big one. The biggest of all l think. Are we alone in the universe?“ Neil produced a broad smile and responded, “Yeah. We don’t know for sure. But if you ask any informed person who knows. For example the age of the universe. What we‘re chemically made of? Life on earth is chemically made of? How quickly life got underway on earth? How many exoplanets are now in their catalogs? You would be inexcusably egocentric to suggest otherwise. So yeah. Maybe we’re not alone with other microbes but possibly other intelligence as well.” Astrophysicist Tyson was frank and funny at times as if to say, only God or our Creator would be able to answer these types of questions.

Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson Responded to Cosmic Queries.

A viewer named Bobbie asked, “Why does the moon have seemingly more craters than we have here on earth?” Tyson responsed, “ So it’s not just that it seemingly has more craters. It does have more craters. So what’s really happening here is that we’re getting hit just as often as the moon. Except we have an atmosphere to protect us.” When asked if the sun disappeared for 5 seconds? “Neil said, “..The whole world would plunge into darkness. And we would fly off at a tangen into interstellar space.”

Neil Degrasse Tyson Responded to Questions Asked by Viewers

During an interview on CBS This Morning Astrophysicist Neil Tyson answered some “cosmic queries.” A viewer named Bobbie asked, “Why does the moon have seemingly more craters than we have here on earth?” With a smile and a bit of curiosity Tyson revealed, “So its not just that it seemingly has more craters. It does have more craters. So what’s really happening here is that we’re getting hit just as often as the moon. Except we have an atmosphere to protect us.” Imagine that. Our Grand Creator not only generated humans, gave them everything needed but also put them on magnificent planet earth with “an atmosphere to protect us.” Wow. Another viewer by the name of Thompson asked, “What will happen to earth if the sun were to disappear for 5 seconds?” Without hesitation Neil responded, “You wouldn’t know about it for eight minutes and twenty seconds. Because that’s how long it takes the light from the sun to reach us. The whole world would plunge into darkness. And we would fly off at a tangent into interstellar space. And make a good science fiction story to explore that. But you would have to come up with the reason why the sun would disappear for five seconds?” These words of. confidence reminds me that our loving Heavenly Father thought carefully about the creation of mankind. Based on Wikipedia we need to ask, why out of all the “...eight planets in the Solar System according to the IAU definition,“ were humans created by God and placed on the earth? The logical answers are revealed and fulfilled in the Bible. Now it’s up to each of us individually to discover those answers. Whether there are other beings on other planets is not helping humankind. Even scientists can’t definitively answer that question. My focus has to be where my Creator Jehovah God put me. Here on earth so that l can get to know what his purpose is for all humans now and in the future.

Why does Neil Tyson love science?How can we look at science in our lives?Why did God create the earth and mankind?

“I see science in everything. Because science basically is in everything.”

“lt’s the pathway to learn whar’s going on in fulfillment of your curiosity that got you there.”

“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.”

Hi wba108@yahoo.com

Nice points in your comment. I’m not sure what you meant where you said l might not want to hear this because l agree with your statement that the answers to these questions are found in the scriptures. Also in detail my article says that we are created by God and definitely cannot function without him. I know for sure that is when l make mistakes. When l don’t pray to God and rely on him for help.

Thanks again for your comment.

It may not be what what many want to hear but the best answers to these important questions are found in the scriptures. We're created and sustained by God and also accountable to him. The scriptures say that "we can do nothing apart from him", very true, if the truth be told, the fact is every breath we take is only possible by the grace of God!
