Hi All,

If you're wondering why every astronomer in the world is so excited, the team from Scientific American gives a great intro here:

Astronomer Katie Mach zooms into that first image (t=4:43) ...

Link: original NASA image (1.8MB).

It's all pretty amazing. It will be hard to top the images we have already seen from Hubble. But I guess we're in for some surprises.

Thanks for the links...very interesting and informative.

I was inspired to read this section again this morning: The God of Action

I am wondering if anyone can point to a place in The Urantia Book that discusses the beginning of the creation of the material universe.

The link I gave above discusses the creation of the Central Universe and Havona, but it tells us that at that time, the material universe was not in existence. But that "the very instant that one billion worlds materialize, there is in evidence gravity sufficient and adequate to hold them in the everlasting grasp of Paradise."

I am assuming that this means the one billion worlds that surround the central universe. But what about the material universe...the worlds we see in the telescopes?

This is as close as I have come to discovering this creation:

Quote:
15:0.1 AS FAR AS the Universal Father is concerned—as a Father—the universes are virtually nonexistent; he deals with personalities; he is the Father of personalities. As far as the Eternal Son and the Infinite Spirit are concerned—as creator partners—the universes are localized and individual under the joint rule of the Creator Sons and the Creative Spirits. As far as the Paradise Trinity is concerned, outside Havona there are just seven inhabited universes, the seven superuniverses which hold jurisdiction over the circle of the first post-Havona space level. The Seven Master Spirits radiate their influence out from the central Isle, thus constituting the vast creation one gigantic wheel, the hub being the eternal Isle of Paradise, the seven spokes the radiations of the Seven Master Spirits, the rim the outer regions of the grand universe.

15:0.2 Early in the materialization of the universal creation the sevenfold scheme of the superuniverse organization and government was formulated. The first post-Havona creation was divided into seven stupendous segments, and the headquarters worlds of these superuniverse governments were designed and constructed. The present scheme of administration has existed from near eternity, and the rulers of these seven superuniverses are rightly called Ancients of Days.

But it doesn't really give a time-frame or an actual event, like the creation of Paradise.

Good question, MaryJo. Don't have an answer, but we are told it was more than a trillion years ago!

57:1.3 (651.5) 987,000,000,000 years ago associate force organizer and then acting inspector number 811,307 of the Orvonton series, traveling out from Uversa, reported to the Ancients of Days that space conditions were favorable for the initiation of materialization phenomena in a certain sector of the, then, easterly segment of Orvonton.

Take that BIG bang :)

Thanks, Rick

Maybe it's one of those things that they knew we would be figuring out eventually.

I think it is very interesting that they are "seeing" with this telescope in the infrared range, and the images are absolutely stunning. A great example of "just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there". I am confident that the evidence provided by the telescope will shake the foundations of accepted science and religion and open the doors to possibilities never before even imagined! Great stuff, very inspiring and exciting!
