Why would he create such a big playground knowing we'd be using less then 1% of it. I'm sure there must be at least ONE other habitable planet in this universe but the chances of finding it are small. At least from what I've read. So I've been wondering. Why did God create such a large 'environment' for us to live in knowing we'd likely never see most of it? I've traveled around the world and I've seen many places and I know why humans create buildings, roads, agricultural fields, hospitals and everything else they build. It's because they're going to use it and they want their children to use it. But we're not really 'using the universe'. We're using 'one' planet in that universe leaving the rest of it virgin and unexplored. So what was the point in creating such a large place for a creation that would never use it? I don't want any bible references just your honest ideas.
    Ahh, so bible=dishonest.

    Your off on the wrong foot.

    Each major religion tells of visitation from ETs, so it is my belief that God created the other >99% of the universe for these other beings.

    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.
    Well now.
    Since I specifically referred to Art that does not teach such things, your response is a bit-- odd.

    I'm not quite sure how to respond to a criticism of things I did not in fact assert.

    My bad then, I'm pleased instead that you do recognise then that Hatuey's "Evolution in Art Concepts" statement was correct and you are also correct that some art does not investigate or develop art concepts.

    It's usually not called art at that point.

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

    Little on the serious side...there are scientists that believe it is quite possible that there are intelligent races out there that could out number us billions to one. They may have started out billions of years before humans and be rapidly expanding (like a colony of ants taking over the jungle floor in the insect world) like a bubble in every direction inhabiting every livable planet (or made to suit) not allowing anything to get in their way! Can't recall off hand who spoke of it I think it was in "Interstellar Travel...Past, Present, and Future".
