I was just in class today, Forensic Science, and my professor made an interesting comment. We were talking about the breakdown of the atom and he referred to how closely it resembled our own solar system and galaxies. For atoms have a nucleus with orbitals that have electrons that rotate on them and the Sun has "orbitals" with planets that rotate on them..and so on. And he said "its kinda like it was all designed by the same being" then he went off that topic because its not a religion class. But anyways I looked up the diagram of an atom, a diagram of our solar system, and of our galaxy. Very striking similarities, almost too strikingly similar. Anyways it was just something I thought was pretty interesting and and when you actually make the comparisons whether big or small you can tell it was ALL made by the same creator. I wonder if anyone ever looked at our world this way?:hmm:

I agree, the beauty and accuracy of creation are breath-taking when we take time out to observe and enjoy.

I have been thinking about this a lot lately too. I believe it is God's signature on His Great Works. When I really started looking around me, He has put His signature on everything good. Even when an egg is fertilized in the womb, microscopically it is very similar to what you are talking about. It is kinda wild how the atom is called an adam. Just a thought .God bless you.

Well kind of, everyone has seen a diagram of an atom that looks like this:

The problem is these diagrams are really just schematics, it isn't what the atom actually "looks" like - it's just a visual representation that makes it easier to understand what's going on. In fact atoms look a little more like this:

AWWWWW!

IT, don't ruin the mood. I was just mellowing out on this thought.:cool:

Sorry, it reminds me of a golden age sci fi short story I read in high school about an inventor who builds a shrinking machine. Of course it get's jammed and shrinks him down as far as matter can go. He ends up on a grain of sand that's actually an entire world with civilizations and ecosystems and everything. It was pretty trippy.

I understand what your saying but those pictures are of the electrons and orbitals in motion. A freeze frame is more accurate and the basis of how its orbitals keep the electrons in in there path just like the sun keeps our planet on its orbital run on the same general principles. For only another element can knock off electrons or add them and only another force with a gravitational pull can knock off or add planets to the orbital that they are already on. Its pretty cool.

Kinda makes you wonder if our solar system is just an atom to some much bigger universe out there. What if there are beings out there who have our universe on a slide and are looking at our solarsystem as an "atom"
