New Book Claims Hubble Telescope Confirms the Existence of God
The Dead Sea Scrolls have long been considered words from God recorded by men under inspiration. Since their discovery they have been a source of great wonder and revelation for the faithful, and now an author is arguing in his new book that the Hubble telescope validates a passage from the scroll of Isaiah confirming God to be the energy source behind the Universe.
The book retraces the history of the telescope, and is based on Hubble`s discoveries made over the past two decades. It chronicles how Hubble has photographed the greatest cinematic drama in human history, uncovering a source of energy beyond comprehension.
The Dead Sea Scrolls (a collection of biblical scrolls) were discovered in caves near the Dead Sea between 1947 and 1956. In among those old scrolls was found the Isaiah Scroll, which, unlike many of the other scrolls, was found mostly intact, and is 1,000 years older than any previously known copy of Isaiah. Written in that scroll was a profound passage originally recorded by Isaiah around 732 BCE.
"To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?" asks the Holy One. "Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing." - Isaiah 40:25, 26
According to author J. Paul Hutchins`s book, "Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power," (book to be released at New York City`s BookExpo America in June) Isaiah recorded what appears to be a "divine invitation from God to mankind," inviting man to search the stars to find anyone equal in power.
After retracing the history of the telescope and doing four years of research into Hubble`s discoveries Hutchins says, he`s convinced that when Galileo turned his telescope to the night sky he ignited in man, "an insatiable quest to the stars, perhaps in response to a Divine Invitation from God."
Since Galileo, man has been embarked on a bold quest, spending billions of dollars and devoting hundreds of millions of man hours in a race to the stars that has now culminated in the invention of the Hubble telescope.
For the past two decades Hubble has recorded the unfolding of an Awe-Inspiring Universe, 14 billion years in the making, in detail never before revealed, confirming what Isaiah recorded.
Interestingly, when Isaiah penned those words he didn`t have the use of a powerful space telescope, yet his description matches the discoveries made by Hubble in recent years of powerful galaxies like the Sombrero Galaxy. The Sombrero with its ominous glow at its core exhibits unimaginable energy. The galaxy is made up of eight hundred billion stars like our own sun and gives it the look of a Mexican sombrero hat.
As a culmination of man`s 400 year quest, NASA`s Hubble and other telescopes around the world have discovered that the known universe is made up of over one hundred twenty five billion galaxies like the Sombrero, collectively exhibiting an energy source beyond comprehension.
According to a report by ABC News and other news agencies, Astronomers in Australia say there are 10 times more stars in the visible Universe than all the grains of sand on the world`s beaches and deserts. Those scientists think the universe may contain as many as 70 sextillion stars, and that is only the stars in the visible Universe within range of our telescopes, but they suspect many more are out there.
Hutchins says, "such inconceivable numbers provoke the question; how could mortal man comprehend, or begin to wrap his head around the total collective energy emitted by 70 Sextillion stars, when our own sun can blister our skin from 93 Million miles away?
The logical conclusion would be what Einstein once concluded; this unimaginable power Isaiah wrote about without the aid of science or a space telescope thousands of years before Hubble revealed it, is Supernatural in Nature."
