Title: The heavens declare the glory of God;

The heavens declare the glory of God
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
The chief aim of all investigations of the
external world should be to discover the rational
order and harmony which has been imposed on it by
God and which He revealed to us in the language
of mathematics. - Kepler (1571-1630)

The Great Nebula in the constellation Orion is a
huge cloud of dust and gas that appears as a
misty spot in Orion's sword. The nebula's bright
central area is shown in this photograph. Image

One of the most identifiable nebulae in the sky,
the Horsehead Nebula in Orion.

Looking toward the south from low Earth orbit,
the crew of the Space Shuttle Endeavor made this
stunning time exposure of the Aurora Australis or
southern lights in April of 1994. Aurora are
visible at high northern latitudes as well, with
the northern lights known as Aurora Borealis.
They are caused by high energy electrons from the
Solar Wind which are funneled into the atmosphere
near the poles by the Earth's magnetic field. The
reddish colors occur at the highest altitudes
(about 200 miles) where the air is least dense.
At lower altitudes and greater densities green
tends to dominate ranging to a pinkish glow at
the lowest. The familiar constellation of Orion
the Hunter is clearly visible above the dark
horizon in the background. Because of the
shuttle's orbital motion, the bright stars in
Orion appear slightly elongated.

Job 38
31 "Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can
you loose the cords of Orion? 32 Can you bring
forth the constellations in their seasons or
lead out the Bear with its cubs? 33 Do you know
the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God's
dominion over the earth?
The most beautiful system of the sun, planets,
and comets, could only proceed from the counsel
and dominion of an intelligent and powerful
BeingThis Being governs all things, not as the
soul of the world, but as Lord over all and on
account of his dominion he is wont to be called
Lord God ???????????, or Universal RulerThe
Supreme God is a Being eternal, infinite,
absolutely perfect but a being, however perfect,
without dominion, cannot be said to be Lord God
for we say, my God, your God, the God of Israel,
the God of Gods, and Lord of Lords
-Newton (1643-1727) Principia
Newton explains God as being personal and
sustaining all things by his powerful word for
the purpose of His own glory. His dominion is
evident in creation. And to see this was
Newtons purpose for the work that he did.
