No one can say where Leonard Nimoy went. That's between him and God.


Edit: Oh! I see. When you said "RIP Leronard Nimoy", I automatically assumed you were talking about the actor.

But even still, regardless of whether there is alien life, that determination is only known between God and His creation. We've no idea what was going through Spock's mind as he perished.

According to you, no. It's about faith, not logic.

Your words are your own conviction I guess.

I went to a church and heard prayer and worship last night.

It was the first time in over ten years.

My cousin was graduating and as a Christian school, they held the ceremony at church. It was pretty whatever for the most part. I couldn't help but cringe a little when a teacher was giving a speech about how going out into the world would test their faith and how he hoped no matter what nothing would shake that knowledge that is the reality of God. I was slightly relieved when I learned one or two of the graduating students was going on to college to major in biology studies. I don't know that any of them are YECs, I'd wager they never put much thought into things being any different than the Bible though.

Anyway, as for the OP.

Hey, I can appreciate the sentiment. As bollocks as I know it is.

Sure it is.

To believe one book over the other takes faith. If you have faith in a certain book, it's logical to follow that books teachings.

It goes to follow that if that book is correct, then following it was logical and faith was well placed.

Congradulations on being the first to say so. That little bit makes
it all worth while.

After all it wasn't a sermon. It was a message of hope.

i was asking about the character he played, spock.

did you know klingons kill their gods? i didnt. interesting system.


Everyone creates the thing they dread. Men of peace create engines of war, invaders create avengers. People create... smaller people? Uhh... children! Lost the word there. Children, designed to supplant them. To help them... end.


i like that idea, the idea that gods die. because why shouldnt they? even the stars die. and it just seems poetic that they should devise their own demise, generate their own instrument of undoing. an almost tragic passing on of the torch, you could say. but in that tragedy...is revolution. and revolution brings a new dawn.

I get the feeling you were just bored. But, it's been mildly fun, I guess.

At least you think. And refuse to just follow.



Less a refusal to follow, more a disbelief by those who proclaim to beleive in God and then deny Him by their lifestyle. It's hard to overcome finally realizing the hypocrisy of some preachers and church leaders. Granted we're all human and make mistakes, these folks continue in the hypocrisy today.

I would have thought that God would remove people from leadership by some means for that. Speaking from my personal experience, I've seen a congregation realize the hypocrisy, and continue to support those ways. It's unreal... regardless of how it's a personal choice each has to make on their own.


“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.”

I can't get past that.

Oh now it's my fault that it's become so muddled?

I think of the here after as all encompassing to the here and now.
Can you finish my reasoning from there?

I did not. And the Klingon culture was something I admired. Everything is ritualistic and embedded in honor. It almost seems as if it is its own religion.



and it just seems poetic that they should devise their own demise, generate their own instrument of undoing.


Still under the assumption that God is real, wouldn't that be exactly what humanity does by denying Him?

Agreed I prolly despise them more then you.

Let me scream this in your ear so you never forget it.

WE FIRED GOD!

What happens in this world now is our fault
Not his.
