Science: God’s Concealed Encyclopedia – As I Reviewed the New Pictures of Pluto…

Posted on July 24, 2015


The recent scientific breakthrough by the New Horizons Team from John Hopkins University gave us astonishing pictures of the planet Pluto like never seen before. 

Throughout the quest for this breakthrough discovery I was glued to my TV Set, eagerly waiting for the detailed pictures of what this mysterious planet looked like. 

The extent of human curiosity is truly amazing and this makes me further believe the bible scripture that says “We are gods” Psalm 82:6

This journey took 10 years of careful planning , complex engineering and impeccable project management , several sleepless nights and countless hours  of intense research. Sending a Space Craft 3 billion miles into orbit and gathering High resolution images from that distance alone is remarkable. Science is really a bedrock of modern civilisation.

The images revealed waterside mountains on the surface , a huge Canyon on the eastern side and even some snow caps amongst other things.

I still wonder, How did those mountains erupt ? Tectonic activity and Snow Caps? How did they all happen on a lonely planet with no evidence of life.

At this point , scientists are still studying this new pictures but remember what God asked Job in the bible in the book of Job 38:22?

“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail? which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?”

Sometimes I think God was possibly referring to places like Pluto and Mars as his store houses for Snow and Hail respectively. Obviously even in these modern days the best we have done is take pictures of these planets, so you bet Job could only imagine what God meant at the time. 

Kudos to our modern day scientist ,but I think it’s important to emphasise here that Science is not evidence of the absence of God but the evidence that everything that exists was created and was done in a pattern , an order , a system by someone/something Superior. The discovery or unravelling of “how things work” is incredible and Infact that is Gods desire. 

Remember It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.. Proberbs 25:2

Science is God’s Concealed Encyclopedia and I believe we have hardly gone past opening the first chapter.

Sometimes I wonder how many things happened in the statement “In the beginning God created The Heavens…. ” Gen 1:1
Our God is Awesome Indeed.
