Planets- Scientific Or Supernatural Mysteries Of The Universe Planets
There were doubts raised in ancient times about the nature of the Earth. Many people commented that the Earth was a star which was later contradicted by Scientists who proved it as a planet in the solar system. The planets are nothing but the solid mass which is made of gases and numerous elements and it revolves around a star. Thereby the Earth was declared as a planet and is supposedly major one in ‘Milky Way’ as it’s the only planet that is suitable for human survival in the entire Solar system.
The formation of planets takes place in millions and millions of years. The chemical components which are found in the outer space combine together in a fixed proportion and that leads to the formation of this solid stationary mass body. Then the core elements make up the internal natural features like its color, type of soil, living conditions etc of the planets. Currently the Earth is the only planet which is suitable for human survival. But man’s search seems to be endless and unsuccessful in locating another planet that supports life. Many satellites were being sent off to many planets like Mars, Jupiter etc and also to stars like the Moon. There has been a lot of research that has been conducted to find a life supporting atmosphere in a planet. Most scientists are of the opinion that sooner or later they will be able to locate planets where life is possible.
Many religions have perceived the planets as the holy bodies which control the life of man on Earth. They predict the actions and the future of human life with the help of the planetary movements that happens in outer space. Though logically it might seem not seem plausible, there are many firm believers in astrology and this aspect of the play of the planets have found a number of followers. Planets and its effects are explained in great detail in some religious scriptures especially in Hinduism. There are nine deities that represent the nine planets and most Hindus offer prayers and other offerings in kind to appease these planets so that no negative influence of it affects them. Because of the in- depth and extensive knowledge of the planets and their positions and effects, most astrologers are earning a substantial amount with their predictions.
The two perceptions of science and religion about planets have, therefore, reflected on the various ways in which the ideologies are viewed as a combination. Whether you consider it from the religious point of view or from the scientific point the fact remains that the planets existence is established and acknowledged. Today as planets are being explored and viewed as a probable future abode for man, they are also seen as some supernatural components that have the power to control the thoughts, actions, and lives of man. So, every individual has their own belief and probably this belief in the supernatural is what makes man stronger to face the challenges of life.
