    Find a cave to live in. We’ll get by without you, somehow.

    Is that the way you see the Grand Canyon ?

    Do you not see how subjective that is ?

    Yes.
    No.

    Mind if I key your brand new car and see if you get all dreamy-eyed about it?

    How could you possibly know how God feels about the Grand Canyon ?

    Has it occurred to you that God set His earthly temple upon a similar discontinuity in the smoothness of the Earth (i.e. Mt. Zion) ?

    If you disagree with the point I made, just say so.

    So you claim nothing more than physical exists? If so, and science cannot deal in anything more..how would you know!? Furthermore why would all history all over the world lie?

    Quite a dismal view of ancient history. Seems to me Abraham dies at what was it, 180 years old? Noah at over 900! Moses weighed in at 120. John was in his nineties probably on Patmos.

    Nobody wants to die from a pesticide factory explosion, or in a nuclear blast, or even worse from radiation poisoning etc etc. The choice is not to accept what is called science, fables and all, or die in a field at 30!
    Tinkering with our genetic nature, when done by sinners is a dangerous business. Not all roses and sunshine.
    A bunch of evil fallen men some inspired by demons sitting around discussing ethics!!!!? Ha. God gave us the scoop on that.
    Only thing worse than a good honest sinner is a pontificating person pretending they are the essence of wisdom and perfection.
    School kids blown to smithereens or wounded to death at Hiroshima could not ignore it.
    Got a better plan, we will rule the world with Jesus soon and boot the folks who will not repent off of it.

    Truth be told believers are in training as royalty to rule the planet and more forever. The illegal aliens who reject Jesus will be extradited to hell in a handbasket. Meanwhile in this smelly sinful ol world, we are to use it the best we can. Use it, enjoy it, thank God for the good in it, while praying for protection against all the evil. We are not going anywhere....for long! This world is His. What is His is ours!

    Question: Is science a good thing, like engineering, or agricultural technology?

    Answer: generally it's merely the attempt to understand Nature. And whether we can handle that understanding and power it unleashes depends on our morality.

    At one time, we were not moral enough, and God intervened to prevent a too-rapid advance (Babel).

    People who pine for violent retribution against their enemies are sad.

    Oh, the hours I've spent inside the Coliseum
    Dodging lions and wastin' time
    Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle
    I could hardly stand to see 'em
    Yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb
    -- someone wiser than either of us

    Given the OP, I didn't think serious posts were actually expected.

    Sorry, don't care what it says, and this forum is about science anyway.

    I guess the royal life is not for all. But all who want His eternal life can have it for the asking. So the folks leaving the planet will have booked their own flight. Not sure how you perceive such an amazing and glorious future to be sad.

    Nor would I expect serious posts were possible from some posts I read. :)


    Science doesn't care and that is why it has ended up a demonic spinner of tales. I do care what the wicked God haters think. I like to know what not to do and what are lies!

    Anyhow, I take it you are weighing in that you think science is good?

    Translation:
    'Science treats untestable beliefs with respect .. by handling them with indifference .. so I'll fill in that void by demonising it'.

    Translation:
    'I use only my personal perceptions of offensiveness, to make the distinction between 'lies' and 'honesty' .. even when offensiveness is not evident'.

    Translation:
    'I need others to have personal opinions in order to categorize them as as 'haters' and 'dishonest' .. even when opinions aren't evident.'

    Third option: There are no gods. This is the most parsimonious explanation given all the different beliefs about gods, people's inability to show any sort of actual evidence for such beings and what we actually observe about how reality works and what is happening in the world.
