Prepare to be humbled!

Go here to view the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

"It's amazing how it all exists without any substantial transcendent foundation to organize it," the existentialist said in disbelief.

"Perhaps we're just imagining it all, as though it exists only because we perceive it," replied the relativist.

At this God spoke and asked, "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? ...Will you condemn me that you may be justified?"
