They call it outer space because there's mostly nothing there.

I find the thought of an infinity of matter and space as believable as infinity of space and nothing. Time and space is relative and even the incredible distance imagined between the ends of the known universe would make it a pin prick in the endless vacuum of space around that... or between universes. Heck...

Douglas Adams: "There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

Creationism - more ho hum stuff from the storybook makers

Frank R. Zindler - Perhaps the greatest danger posed by the creationists results from their almost universal lack of a sense of humor and their incredible credulity. They never laugh when they read each other's books, and they easily can be made to believe almost anything. A society where everyone is gullible will not survive for long, and a world without humor is indistinguishable from hell.

Since Morris Henry Morris, (president of the Institute for Creation Research) teaches that the universe is only a few thousand years old, there is the embarrassing fact that many stars are millions or indeed billions of light-years distant. If the stars themselves are only a few thousand years old, their light should not yet have reached us, and so most of the stars of the universe would be invisible if creationism were true. But Morris can explain:
This problem seems formidable at first, but is easily resolved when the implications of God's creative acts are understood. The very purpose of creation centered in man. Even the angels themselves were created to be "ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation." (Hebrews 1:14). Man was not some kind of afterthought on God's part at all, but was absolutely central in all of His plans.

Some of us have accepted Copernicus' ideas that the earth is the center of the universe but struggle with the idea that we ourselves are not - Moth.

It is even possible that the "light" bathing the earth on the first three days [before the sun was created] was created in space as en route from the innumerable "light bearers" which were yet to be constituted on the fourth day.

In other words, the light we see coming from a star a hundred million light years away has not been traveling for a hundred million years. God created the light close to the Earth; the light never came from a star at all It just looks that way! God, it would seem, has created a world of deceitful, appearances.

Just how Dr. Morris was able to measure the concentration of angels in the vicinity of the planet Earth is not revealed.

Like Billy Graham, Morris seems to think that UFOs are actually angels -- evil angels. "There are a number of Biblical references indicating that in some way the stars may actually participate in human battles".
