The graphic to the left shows a giant band of ice chunks located in the region of the outer planets and beyond. As they break loose and begin making their way in large, sweeping orbits toward the sun, these "dirty iceballs" become known as comets. You will notice how small the entire solar system is in relation to it. Known as the Kuiper Belt, this zone of millions of ice chunks births many of the comets that have traveled our family of planets for millenium.
Graphic at left shows the trajectory of comets as their orbits cut through the compact orbit plane of the planets.

larger Oort Cloud encompasses smaller, horizontal Kuiper Belt
Above are graphics of a much larger region of comets that goes far beyond the outer solar system, possibly extending half way to our nearest star. Notice how this "Oort Cloud" encompasses the solar system and dwarfs the Kuiper Belt (depicted at the top of the left graphic). The number of comets (composed of dirt and ice) which this region contains is estimated to be in the billions!
The Question is: Where did all this water...this frozen water... come from?
The answer is to be found in Genesis 1:
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth...
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters...and God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament...and God called the firmament Heaven."
There was water, immense volumes of water...beyond calculating...in existence at the beginning of creation. In the midst of the water, God placed a zone we know as heaven. This was not the spiritual heaven, but the physical heavens that we see enveloping earth when we look into the night sky. Beyond the physical heaven as man knew it...above and below it...were the waters that had been divided, or separated, by these heavens. It is here that we find the Oort Cloud and the lesser Kuiper Belt which contain billions of comets.
God's Fingerprints reach out to solve a mystery scientists have no answer for: Where did all that water come from that created an endless swarm of comets in the icy cold of space?
