Making a Universe: Why Bother?

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder's craft." (Psalms 19:2)

One of the ways we can learn about God is by noticing order and beauty in the universe. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 31-32, 319)

St. Bonaventure said that the universe communicates God's glory, St. Thomas Aquinas said that the Almighty creates because God is good and loving. (Catechism, 293)
