Our Special Earth: Our “Solar Address” and the Goldilocks Habitable Zone

By David Rives

Every star we see is a burning mass of plasma, similar to the sun. Even so, our Sun is not just any old star. It is a main sequence G2

Here on Earth, we’re about 93 million miles from the Sun. That might sound trivial, but it’s a very important distance. We are situated in a very narrow band circling the Sun that supports habitability.

If Earth was only a few percent closer to the Sun, it would become like the planet Venus, boiling hot, and uninhabitable. However, around 20 percent farther away, and Earth would be frozen and lifeless.

If Earth was on a very elliptical orbit around the Sun, then it would be alternately too close and too far away for life to be sustained. Instead, we find that Earth has a nearly circular orbit, situated the perfect distance for life.

There can be no doubt that the Earth occupies a favored position – the only known position in which human life can be sustained. It was created with purpose.

“… 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:

Not only that, but, God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I’m David Rives…
Truly, The Heavens Declare the Glory of God.
