Structure In Universe

Take a look at this image. At first impression, you may think you are looking at the brain’s neurological network. In reality, it is a theoretical model of the fabric of, “the structure of, the universe.” The chaos that was once thought to be the disorganized universe has recently been discovered to be a highly organized structure. Additionally, in this simulation, science attempts to demonstrate the gauze-like features of the universe.  

To me, that is significant because of what is stated in Isaiah 40:22: “There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers. He is stretching out the heavens like a fine gauze, and he spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.” Granted, there is a distinct possibility that what was being written about here was earth’s atmosphere (in particular clouds), and not a commentary on the design of the universe. Still, I was struck by the similarity. If nothing else, the “structure” indicates intelligent design. There is no way that Isaiah could have had that knowledge on his own, which means he was told about it. That is partially what one Bible writer meant when he wrote: “For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were moved by holy spirit.” (2 Peter 1:21)

(I just finished watching a BBC science show explaining the new understanding on the structure of the universe. I tried to find a YouTube video of that episode but couldn't find it. In it, they refer to the “intelligent design” in the universe. Although they completely avoid the implication that intelligence is a possession of a cognizant being (God, in this case), the whole program really drives home what those appreciating the Bible have always known.)
