Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Heaven and Hell can be Infinite?

Submitted by Shri Devi (India), Oct 23, 2007 at 07:41

Dear Christofer / Servant_of _Christ,

There are more than one hundred billion (1011) galaxies in the Universe,[1] each containing hundreds of billions of stars, with each star containing about 1057 atoms of hydrogen.

Please refer Wikepedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universe

Your God was Earthcentric Mooncentric and Suncentric. 100000000000 (no of galaxies ) * 100 * 1000000000 ( stars ) and most of the stars having 10s planets like earth and satellites like moons. Your Hell and Heaven may have to be outside this universe to suffer or enjoy.

Please refer Rigveda of Hindu Dharma regarding the infinite nature of the universe.

HYMN CXXIX. Creation.

1. THEN was not non-existent nor existent: there was no realm of air, no sky beyond it.
What covered in, and where? and what gave shelter? Was water there, unfathomed depth of water?

2 Death was not then, nor was there aught immortal: no sign was there, the day's and night's divider.
That One Thing, breathless, breathed by its own nature: apart from it was nothing whatsoever.

3 Darkness there was: at first concealed in darkness this All was indiscriminated chaos.
All that existed then was void and form less: by the great power of Warmth was born that Unit.

4 Thereafter rose Desire in the beginning, Desire, the primal seed and germ of Spirit.
Sages who searched with their heart's thought discovered the existent's kinship in the non-existent.

5 Transversely was their severing line extended: what was above it then, and what below it?
There were begetters, there were mighty forces, free action here and energy up yonder

6 Who verily knows and who can here declare it, whence it was born and whence comes this creation?
The Gods are later than this world's production. Who knows then whence it first came into being?

7 He, the first origin of this creation, whether he formed it all or did not form it,
Whose eye controls this world in highest heaven, he verily knows it, or perhaps he knows not.

Regards,

Shri Devi.
