David: What is the primary purpose?


dhw: I know you do not accept the Bible as an authority, but:

Colossians 1:15-16 "The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him."

Isaiah 45:18 For this is what Jehovah says, The Creator of the heavens, the true God, The One who formed the earth, its Maker who firmly established it, Who did not create it simply for nothing,* but formed it to be inhabited: I am Jehovah, and there is no one else."

Now, aside from these comments, and others like these, there is no discussion of a larger context, (i.e. beyond the context of Earth itself) though it is implied in Revelations where it says that new things will be revealed at a later date.

I can certainly accept Isaiah, which supports my view. We humans are some of the inhabitants He envisioned creating.
