    The Universe is so enormous we can't really comprehend it all. I try my best to visualize it in this video. This video had without a doubt the most complicated math I've ever done in a video before. If I made errors or miscalculations please let me know in the comments or message me! I want to know.

    if you wish to know all about the universe and see it then keep the commandments and God will give you eternal life and you will have plenty of time to investigate it all. However if you are immoral and do not keep the commandments your time is almost up.

    (KJV)(Psalms 14:1) To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There
    is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
    (KJV)(Job 4:17) Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?
    (KJV)(Romans 6:23) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Did you know that the moon is moving away from us? In billions of years the moon would be so far away from us that solar and lunar eclipses will no longer be possible. It also used to be 238,855 miles from us now it's 238,900 miles from our planet.
    Edit: See what I'm trying to say guys it's moving away from our planet :( :(

    It's amazing... flat earthers will just simply ignore this reality in order to hang on to the "humble" and "enlightened" notion that they have the "special knowledge" that they are "specially created" by "the most powerful being" to be the center of the universe, on a plate under a cup, just because they can't wrap their head around how immensely small and insignificant we are in relation to the planet alone. Let alone the entire universe.

      Did you like the very first graphic he shows? You know that's a flat earth covered by a dome, your reality (whether you accept it or not doesn't matter). It's amazing you think oceans can bend into a spinning water ball flying through NOTHING at unfathomable speeds.

    I've thought for a long time that maybe we're not that small, yes, we're small compared to our observable universe, but what if there's a lot more on the opposite way, on a sub-atomic level? What if there's a lot more of the universe living on a much infinite smaller scale? What if civilizations exist on this small plane and our reality is like all their observable universe? What if we live in a sub-atomic field for other bigger entities?

    Fun Moon fact: If you could buy a house there, the Earth may play an important role in your decision. Since the Moon is tidally locked with Earth (it doesn't rotate), the Earth will be permanently fixed in the sky where you live. It will never move, unless you travel elsewhere on the Moon. What a strange sight that must be. Waking up the next day, the Earth still there, but it's phase changed slightly. It would mimic the exact phases of the Moon and with the exact timing as the Moon seen from Earth. My guess...if the day comes when you can buy real estate on the Moon...don't expect the far side of the moon to hold much value.

    This guy speaks like he reads facts. If we cannot see any further than the Oort Cloud or the Milky Way, then there is nothing more to say or speculate, let alone giving names to things that we will not ever know to exist. We continue to ask questions to ourselves to which we will simply not ever know the answers of, ever.

    If the moon was really that far from the Earth (0:32), there is no way that earth's gravitational force could still impact the moon.
