    As an amusing side note, in a science fiction trilogy, that "empty space" was the more important part of the universe where higher life forms lived, while stars and planets were interruptions in "deep heaven" where lower life forms dwelt.

    Why not?
    Dont you think its kind of silly to wonder why the omnipotent do what they do?
    Don't you think its even more silly to think that you or anyone else might actually have the answer?

    Seems pretty obvious to me.

    He needed someplace to put all that stuff.

    If you're discounting the anatomical drawings of people like Leonardo da Vinci or Brunelleschi discovering perspective or the use of reflective mirrors by the Flemish painters to describe the world around them in paintings or the constant desire to drive the technology that records our everyday world then you've maybe got quite a bit of reading to do.

    To go further, the true 17 forms of mathematical pattern were first described in the art of the Alhambra palace yet it took until 1973 or so when an Oxford mathematician rediscover what had been discovered 1200 years ago. There are many examples and I think Hatuey has you on this one.

    Our senses are limited. There is no such thing as “empty space”. Every cubic centimeter is occupied.

    Which proves that he needed some place for all that stuff.


    And there has been one place in all the universe that has been proven to be "empty space" and lucky me! It resides between my ears.

    Re: Why did God create the rest of the universe?

    I used to believe that there just had to be other intelligent life out there at one time. And that is the real issue. Not just life but intelligent life. If we just find microbes and simple forms of life that will not end the Theological vs Scientific quarrels. They will just take a different form.

    But evidence today is showing a much less probability of Intelligent life "out there" than was first believed when we put together things like SETI. The universe is a very hostile place to life at least life as we know it. Judeo - Christian religion teaches that we humans are Gods greatest creation, So what if God knowing that someday we would begin exploring the universe in various manners intentionally made it big and empty simply to emphasize that point?

    How will finding intelligent life end the theological v scientific quarrels?

    True, but...
    An infinite universe has an infinite number of intelligent species.

    Judeo - Christian religion teaches that we humans are Gods greatest creation...
    ...here on earth.

    Cool Re: Why did God create the rest of the universe?

    God could have just dreamed of the Hatuey, but the multicultural whoring universal values that the principalities and powers of the air type democracy demands, or Obamanation virus, would have infected all the other Republics in the quantum computer generated Universe. So even though light could not escape God had no choice but to bang so some Republicans could escape the reach of the Obamanation virus.
