Did God create everything and every last planet/star in our physical universe? Were there other galaxies that we could potentially travel too that were created by other Gods besides Elohim/Jehovah? What does the church believe on this issue?
In his outstanding October 2007 General Conference address entitled “Truth: The Foundation of Correct Decisions“, Elder Richard G. Scott said the following:
If we were capable of moving outward into space, we would first see our earth as did the astronauts. Farther out, we would have a grandstand view of the sun and its orbiting planets. They would appear as a small circle of objects within an enormous panorama of glittering stars. Were we to continue the outward journey, we would have a celestial view of our Milky Way spiral, with over 100 billion stars rotating in a circular path, their orbits controlled by gravity around a concentrated central region. Beyond that, we could look toward a group of galaxies called the Virgo Cluster, which some feel includes our Milky Way, estimated to be about 50 million light years away. Beyond that, we’d encounter galaxies 10 billion light years away that the Hubble telescope has photographed. The dizzying enormity of that distance is suggested by noting that light travels 700 million miles an hour. Even from this extraordinary perspective there would not be the slightest evidence of approaching any limit to God the Father’s creations.
Based on this, it is clear that Elder Scott believed that all of the observable universe was created by our Father in heaven. I take Elder Scott’s view on the matter.
