Are there other “habitable” planets in the universe?
By “habitable”, I mean…”move in ready”…for any living creature or being that exists on planet earth. Our space programs continue the search, in hopes they can find one to prove that evolution occurs. Their logic is, if evolution were true, then they should see life on other planets, because evolution would have occurred there too (This, by the way, is where the concept of space aliens comes from). But their search has a twofold purpose. They also want to find another planet, because they feel like they need to know there’s another planet people can move to, in order to preserve the human race.
But what does the Bible say? We find in the first 13 verses of Genesis chapter one, how that God spent 3 days in the creation of planet earth. Why did He spend so much time on earth? Let’s read what God said in another place in Scripture, in order to get an answer to this question…
Isaiah 45:18 KJV
 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord ; and there is none else.
Wow! God “formed it to be inhabited”. That my friend, is the answer. Do we find anywhere in Scripture that He spent 3 days on any other planet? No. In fact, we find that on the 4th day of creation, God created the sun, moon AND all the stars and planets that currently exist in the universe, in just that one day. Think about that. He spent 3 days on earth to make it “habitable”, but the rest of the entire universe, with all of the galaxies, nebulae, stars, and all other celestials of the universe, He only spent 1 day. This should convince us of the importance of our planet earth.
So what is the purpose for all those celestials in the universe? Let’s look at the reason which God gave us in His Word…
Genesis 1:14-15 KJV
 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
Do we see any indication of “habitation”? Absolutely not. They were created “for” the benefit of planet earth.
So, since God did not spend 3 days on any other planet as he did with earth, but instead created everything else in the universe in just one day, then we can safely assume that the earth is the only “habitable” planet that exists in the entire universe.
Therefore, we could save a ton of money in the space programs, if they would just simply believe the Scriptures. They have been searching for a very long time, and have researched multitudes of planets in the universe, and their conclusion remains the same…there are no known “habitable” planets in the universe. Every now and then, they will announce that they have discovered another “planet earth”, only to recant their claim later upon further investigation.
My friend, God’s Word can be trusted.
