I understand what you are saying, but this can be a tricky subject. I have not the wisdom to explain exactly what the bibles answer would be to what
I have only been a christian just a few short years, and I would never say I have all the answers from a religious point of view.
But I will say this, that God does allow certain things to happen. Maybe to show man that living ignorantly of God is not the way life should be.
When you go to drive in your car or any other kind of transport do you pray for God to keep you safe. If not and you then have a crash and harm comes
to you then you cannot blame God for that. GOd could noy have intervened for you because you did not ask for his protection in the first place.
Now, like you said planes, trains and cars and other forms of transport do crash and people do die. But many times this is because someone has steped
outside the rules. Rules are set by the government and other organisations, and it does say in the Bible that we should obey every ordinance of man
for Gods sake whether it is to Kings, governments, authorities and so on. But if someone driving a car goes out of the set rules and starts speeding
and crashes and dies. Then he has only himself to blame because he disobeyed the rules. If someone then disobeys the set rules then you are also
disobeying Gods rules, Because god has said to obey the rules of the governments and authorities.
In britain we have an appalling track record for train crashes and if someone were to study that track record they would find that the reason for most
of the crashes was down to the drivers going through the red light. Recently a train crash occured because a car driver fell asleep at the wheel and
his car crashed through the barriers and stop right on top of the train lines. Can you guess what happened next?. does it say in the rules that we
are allowed to drive a car while tired?. The most recent accident happened because a track maintenance guy disobeyed safety regulations and left the
track too loose for the train to pass on and the trainended up on its side.
We could also say that highjacking a plane is sheer rebellion of mankind against law, so this could also come under disobedience on the part of the
Nowhere in the bible does it say that god condones spacetravel and I strongly believe that we are playing with fire by going up there. It was never
Gods intention for us to discover what is up there by doing it our own way. That is why God is not on mans side when we freely do our own will and
mess around with what we do not understand. If God was on mankinds side when we go up into space then I would be confident that there would be no
fatalities or exploding rockets, and every mission would be a success. But we humans think we know better, that is why mankind always fails.
The things that we see at night in the sky have a purpose. Who ever said that they were just there and god was inviting us to discover them. I would
like to tell you what they are really for and what the bible says the speak of but that is another subject and for another forum.
lets get back to the topic in hand.
The tower of Babel
