LETTER: Recent eclipse was magnificent

Did you see the recent moon eclipse? That eclipse was accurately reported by the Post Independent to be expected April 15 at 1:06 a.m. There was a beautiful clear sky, and the total eclipse was magnificent. There was a great picture on the front page of the Post on April 16.

How could NASA or anyone else know what would be happening at that precise time, unless the great many galaxies, our universe, our world, the heavens and the earth are all created by some intelligent creative mind who created the order that would allow us to predict exact timing of a moon or sun eclipse?

If that is true, what would cause us as human beings, or our educational and political systems, to question that the magnificence and order in the heavenly galaxies, the order in the moon, stars and planets of our own universe, not be the same intelligent creative mind who designed and created human beings with all the intricate systems in each of our bodies — billions of people each with individual recognizable faces and their own individual DNA?

Psalm 19:1-3 tells us “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament (the expanse of the heavens) shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.” And we read in Psalm 147:4-5 “He determines the number of the stars; He gives to all of them their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; His understanding is beyond measure.”
