One objection to the existence of God and, more specifically, a God who meddles in human history, is the immense size of the universe.

Astronomer and science popularizer Carl Sagan observed, "There are in fact 100 billion galaxies, each of which contain(s) something like a 100 billion stars. Think of how many stars, and planets, and kinds of life there may be in this vast and awesome universe."

The idea that our lone planet would be the center of divine attention in the vast cosmos seems ridiculous. But maybe not. If we want to understand how God plays God, we might get a hint from how man plays God.

Scientists at the CERN complex at the Swiss-Franco border “play God” when they try to recreate, in miniature, elements of the Big Bang that started our universe. Scientists and engineers created giant machines and a tunnel 17 miles in circumference to study subatomic particles.

If they would construct something so humongous just to examine something so incredibly tiny, it is conceivable that God would create a giant universe just to focus on our speck of human life on Earth. The universe is God’s version of CERN.

Admittedly, the universe is exponentially (by several magnitudes) larger than CERN, but that is why we have the word exponentially: to allow us to think big. And, if we think big enough, perhaps we can start thinking like God.

You have heard of John Napier haven't you?

Invented?
1 In the beginning was the Math, and the Math was with God, and the Math was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by Math; and without Math was not any thing made that was made.

4 In Math was life; and the life was the light of men.
