God’s Signature Revealed on August 21, 2017
Irrefutable evidence that God exists and that he created the universe will be revealed on August 21, 2017.
On this day, a total solar eclipse will be witnessed across the United States for the first time in nearly 100 years. Total solar eclipses have been seen in isolated corners of the US since then, but not on this coast-to-coast scale since June 8, 1918. Naturally, eclipse fever is sweeping the nation. Eclipse safety glasses are selling out of stock on Amazon.
A total solar eclipse is far more fantastic than a lunar eclipse or a partial solar eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely covers the sun for a couple of minutes. You can only see this once-in-a-lifetime event if you are in the “path of totality.”
In this path, you will experience a sudden temperature drop, you’ll see the stars in the middle of the day, and the brightness of the sun will be completely gone. All that will remain of the sun is the solar corona, shimmering brilliantly around the disk of the Moon’s. Breathtaking.
From Oregon to South Carolina, people are flocking to small towns and big cities that fall inside the path of totality. If you are lucky enough to be in the narrow path of the moon’s eerie shadow on August 21, you will most certainly have an emotional and hopefully religious experience. I am taking my family to the path of totality so they can experience this event firsthand.
So, how does a total solar eclipse prove that God is real and that he created the universe? The conditions for a total solar eclipse are remarkably rare. The moon must be the perfect size. It must orbit the earth at the perfect distance from the sun. It just so happens that although the sun is 400 times bigger than the moon, it’s also 400 times further from earth. This is why both the sun and the moon appear to be the same size in the sky. Could this be a coincidence?
Consider that our sun, a burning ball of hydrogen and helium, is 93 million miles from earth. It is 1 million times the volume of earth and 109 times the diameter of earth. The moon orbits our planet and is a little more than a quarter of the size of the earth. It’s light reflective surface is perfectly suited to reflect sunlight and provide light for earth’s inhabitants at night.
Yet, these two totally different celestial spheres appear to be perfectly the same size from our perspective on earth.
This simply cannot be a coincidence.
Some people believe that the universe and life appeared spontaneously from nothing billions of years ago. They believe our human existence and consciousness to be the result of a random cosmic accident.
Even if they are correct, would the very planet on which human beings randomly evolved also just so happen to be the planet where the sun and moon appear to be exactly the same size?
No. The universe points to an intelligent designer.
This total solar eclipse will be God’s signature on his creation.
Now, more than ever, our hurting world needs to look to God for solutions.
I highly encourage you to go the path of totality and witness his signature firsthand.
