Is there Another Earth?

11/11/2014 , 16 Comments



All my life I have been interested in Science. Fate has it, I believe, that this interest led me to the study of the Holy Scriptures. The Bible even enhanced my interest in everything scientific. The first time I heard Johnny Mathis singing “Fly Me to the Moon,” the lyrics and the melody were already printed in my mind. Do you want me to prove this? Pardon my voice, but I can sing it with gusto!

I am interested about everything around me. I observe keenly how ants move, how birds fly, and how people live their lives. In my elementary grades, when I first heard the Darwinian Theory on evolution, the first doubt that came into my mind was that, if humans came from apes, why are there people with faces that look like horses and dogs?


I am not a scientist and have never finished any degree in any branch of Science, but I always have with me a scientific attitude and approach in the study of everything I am interested in. The very recent discovery of a planet 2 light-years away from the earth, which they say is very much ‘earth-like,’ made it to the headlines of global news reports. This led to the resurrection of the very frequently asked question: Is there life in other places of the universe? Are there other planets that can sustain life much like that of the earth?


I am sure of the answer! And my answer comes from the book which I have revered all my life because it is the only book that I found to be logical and scientific in answering not only the questions of hundreds of thousands of people I am favored to meet, but my own questions which I do not hear from other people. The Bible has it!
In the book of Acts 17:26-27, it is written –

“And He has made all nations of men of one blood to dwell on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling, to seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and find Him, though indeed He is not far from each one of us.”

The verse mentions the planet Earth, and we must especially notice the phrase “boundaries of their dwelling”. Scientists agree that until now, with all their sophisticated equipments, they have not yet found in the Solar system, or in our galaxy, much more in other distant galaxies, a place that can sustain or support human life. The recent planet discovered has a temperature of 300 degrees centigrade below zero, with its size, 5.5 times larger than that of the earth, and with its year, much shorter than an earth year, implying that it moves on a greater speed than the earth, and revolving on a star which is very much fainter than our sun. It is scientifically impossible for us to live in such a place, period.




God is an exact God. Reduce the size of the earth; reduce the heat of the sun; and we will freeze. Make it a little closer to the sun and we will be baked or burned. Make it as large as Mars and our weight will be more than doubled. The Earth’s size and distance from the sun are the exact measurements needed to sustain human life! GOD MEASURED IT.
You want proof? Read the book of Job 38:4, it says:

“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell if you have understanding! Who has set its measurements, for you know? Or who has stretched the line on it? On what are its bases sunk, or who cast its cornerstone…”

After all, the universe is the handy work of God’s hand. Psalms 19:1-3 has this to say:

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor are there words; their voice is not heard.”

Undoubtedly, there are other planets in our own galaxy and in billion other galaxies, but the reason why God created man on Earth from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7) is because it is the only planet in the entire universe wherein human life will comfortably fit. Think of this: The best place for your eyes is where it is now. Put them a little below, i.e., in the belly or thighs and you can imagine how ugly your person will be. Put your nose or ears in other places of your body and you will not be a work of art, as written in the book of Hebrews 2:6-7.

But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:” 

Human efforts and resources, which scientists devote in searching for other worlds that can sustain life, will be futile! Let us search, instead, from the Holy Scriptures the kingdom and the righteousness of God and discover a world called a “new Earth” where righteousness, peace, and love dwell (2 Peter 3:13).

“But according to His promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”

  8. I truly agree that there is no other habitat for humans but earth so there's really no point on wasting our time finding for another earth so to speak.As Bro. ELI puts it, there is none.

  9. Out of this world learning experience - Those who claim that the Bible was introduced by them should be ashamed as they were the ones who claimed that the earth is flat but was proven otherwise.

  11. There is none like Earth! It is only the planet under the vastness of the universe where humans can live. Because God is an exact God, and He created the earth where He measures it perfectly. To God be the Glory!

  13. This is actually the same question in my mind when I hear the discovery of a planet which they say is very much "earth-like". This blog enlighten me so much. No doubt that the Bible is the most logical and scientific in answering questions. Earth is the only planet in the entire universe wherein we can live comfortably fit. God is an exact God!!! And it is nice to think that God is preparing a new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. To God be the Glory!!!

  14. God is an exact God. PERIOD. God designed Earth exactly where us, people can sustain life. Science and Bible in one? Amazing right! Science is in the Bible. No doubt about that. This article proves that there's no place like Earth that God created for us. We should be thankful how God designed Earth for us to live. Thanks be to God! Thank you Mr. Controversy!

  15. God created man. And God himself also created the Earth to be the abode of his creation e.g. man where he MEASURES it and because He is an exact God, His measurements are just and precise. knowing the fact that planet Earth is the only planet where it can sustain peoples life, as God's wonderful creation.

  16. “There's no place like Earth.” Earth is the only planet that human and other living things/species can live on. Even scientist agree that until know they have not yet found a place that can sustain or support human life. Because only Earth is the planet in the Solar System that God creates for all the living organisms especially for His children.
