Reviews - What do customers think about He Made the Stars Also: What the Bible says about the stars?
Very non-technical and basic. Apr 25, 2008
Very non-technical and basic topics that a fundamentalist would already be aware of such as how the earth literally hangs on nothing and that the earth was obviously designed...as it is so suited for life. The subject on stars begins only from page 72 proper and touches on elementary facts like the unfathomable expanse of the stars that can only serve to reveal the invisible attributes of God.
Nonetheless the author gives some brief but new angles on old subjects towards the end of his book. For instance, he writes that though Science Fiction such as Star Wars and Star Trek may appear harmless and suitable for children, the depiction of aliens in these shows are a cause for concern. Aliens are normally portrayed as equal in intelligence and attributes to Man and that serves to give the impression on young minds that there is nothing special about Man at all. So the notion that Man was given dominion over the earth and that the universe was created FOR Man (not man for the universe) is subtly watered down.
One thing the author omitted and which I was hoping he would touch on is the theory that THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE IS ACTUALLY NEEDED TO SUSTAIN LIFE ON MINUSCULE EARTH. This theory involves somewhat complex arithmetics that allude to the fact that the rotation of our solar system, and the perfect horizontal alignment of all planets in our solar system is made possible by the existence of stars in the galaxies and the milky way. Hence apart from their beauty and evidence of deliberate design, stars and galaxies also have their practical roles to play.
