Comet Collision?

Have you considered the chances that Earth may collide with a comet?

Jupiter is a huge gas planet, more than 300 times the mass of Earth. This “king planet” acts like a giant vacuum cleaner in space, protecting Earth from comet and solar system debris impacts. This was illustrated in July of 1994 when the Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collided into Jupiter. As Jupiter’s tremendous gravitational pull drew in this comet toward its surface, the comet broke into fragments. These fragments then collided with Jupiter in a spectacular collision, which was captured on film.
Uranus and Saturn also provide a gravitational pull that “vacuums up” debris. In addition, planets within the inner solar system protect us from being bombarded by asteroids from the asteroid belt. Mars is our first line of defense, being at the edge of the asteroid belt. It takes a lot of hits for us, as does Venus. One look at the moon’s surface, full of impact craters, shows what a rough environment outer space really is, many of these craters would have impacted on Earth had the moon not intercepted them for us.
God has provided just the right amount of protection for the Earth by placing the planets in the right position with the right amount of gravitational pull. A coincidence you say? Hardly. The more we study the heavens, the more we see the hand of protection from our all-powerful God.
