The infinite awe-inspiring cosmos makes the case for Almighty God. Image: James Webb Space Telescope

In the grand scheme, we are so infinitesimal



Here is a cosmic truth that is truly mind-bending: the distance light travels in 1 light year—5.878 trillion miles (5,878,625,370,000 miles) to be precise.

In a vacuum, light travels at a speed of 670,616,629 mph (1,079,252,849 km/h). To find the distance of a light-year, multiply this speed by the number of hours in a year (8,766). The result: One light-year equals 5,863 trillion miles (roughly 1.4 billion miles short of 1 zillion).

We are so small

There are more than a zillion stars in the accompanying James Webb Space Telescope image. To travel across this threshold, alone would take light energy an eternity. To put this distance in context in an infinite universe, that's not even backing out of the driveway of our home planet. Not even turning on the engine.

Humankind, with its evil, bickering, greedy, hateful and bigoted traits, is truly insignificant in the grand scheme of things. One former US president created a short-lived government entity named the Space Force to aug- ment the nation’s military juggernaut, presumably to militarize space. But, why? To govern or regulate what?

It never took flight and was the height of arrogance.


But an all-wise, all-knowing, all-powerful, omnipresent Almighty God, who created this cosmic mystery loves us beyond all else. I am humbled and can only say, “glory to God in the highest.”


If aliens are here, they're probably second-guessing official contact

Satire: Earth too volatile for a ‘Close Encounter of the Fourth Kind’


Hey—you think the UFO scouts buzzing the planet may be having second doubts about official diplomacy with belligerent Earthlings?

You know first responders here on Earth are going to be the "scurdy-kat-kops," beholden to "cap" anything non-white that spooks them—meaning anything green, black, brown, red or some darker shade of gray, which also fits the alien typecast. The aliens may be on a peaceful mission, as they haven't overtly attacked us yet, despite the fact we keep chasing after them.

Getting back to the cops, who spook too readily at the sight of a black or brown-skinned person wearing a hoodie at dawn, high noon or dusk. If they pull this with the aliens, they are likely to get zapped with an M240 Incinerator Unit. That could be a precursor to alien aggression to the detriment of the human race at which time they may decide to erase humanity out of concern this angry race of beings may pollute the cosmos with violence and confusion.


Surely, they can see the leading nations have delusional crackpots as leaders—Kim Jong Ill, Vladmir Putin, Rodrigo Duterte, Recep Erdoğan, Jair Bolsonaro, and a simpleton/seminal liar named Donald Trump, who leads a cult of 75 million in the nation with the most powerful nuclearized military. Remember, this guy attempted a failed militarization of the black soup—Space Force. Remember that cartoonish exercise in futility?

To an advanced sentient species, Earth may appear unworthy of prolonged life or advanced technological tutoring due to its propensity for war and lack of maturity in ameliorating disputes without threatening self-annihilation.
