Love knows that the Cosmos is not all there is

by Craig on March 12, 2014

A Loving and honest Christian response to Cosmos

The Cosmos is all that is,

or ever was,

or ever will be.

(Carl Sagan)

 

That’s the opening line from the freshly minted TV show Cosmos, which could prove to be a brilliant production that inspires a generation of future scientists, if only it remains…

compelling…
revealing…

and true.

I was hoping for the best…

but that very first line…

“The Cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be.”

Ruh Roh.

True science requires proof.
True religion requires faith.
This opening line lacks any proof.

This makes it not a statement of science…

but of faith…

…maybe even religion.

Cosmos, faith presented as science, while it openly attacks faith.

The cartoon…funny. The presentation of a faith based opinion as scientific fact…not funny.

So…

there is no God.

there is no Creator…

just this…

“The Cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be.”

And it suddenly hit me, just now…
that line sounds eerily familiar to this…

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God…
“the one who is, and who was, and who is to come” (Rev 1:8)

Maybe it’s an innocent coincidence.
Or maybe an attempt to spread a new gospel.

It’s not God who is eternal…immutable…ultimate in any way…

it’s the Cosmos.

There is more.

Please come back…

Thanks, Craig, for helping take a thoughtful look at this. I haven’t seen it and probably won’t, but like to know what is going on! God bless you and keep you!

I love how you were able to interject humor into a topic which is, well, admittedly, not humorous. To say that only the cosmos exists is denying God’s eternal presence. I don’t think this is a series which I will care to watch, but so appreciate your sharing, Craig!
Love and blessings!

once, while visiting my inlaws, i saw just part of a show where they were saying [what if] the star that appeared at Jesus’ birth was really a space ship… sometimes the way they present these ideas, it can be so believable. Jesus, please help us keep our eyes on you and help us to make you the desire of our hearts. Craig, please just keep pointing us to the Truth. God’s blessings to you this day.
