Wow! What an amazing producer God is! Personally, I cant wait to die to spend HOURS in His DvD Library! Just think! We will find every TRUTH about
everything! There will be nothing more to argue about. Not to mention his books! Titles like "So now you know -100 years really IS the blink of the
eye" and "Here is how I did it"! Haha Yeah!
I think we are meant to evolve, but that old question still is present. If we evolved from Apes, why are there still apes around? We have just been
given the means to do so [evolve] and how we do that is up to us-for good-and sadly, more so these days, for bad (so we can see and feel the effect
and difference). Yet lets face it, ours is not the first generation to fight with one another over the smallest to the largest issues, as we don't
all think alike.How boring if we did! We would NEVER evolve! Pain is pain and I do not think that any Religion can lose someone in the name of 'their
"god" and be truly happy and thrilled, without even a int of 'my baby/husband/daughter/parent is no more and I truly don't know if I will see them
again. Unless they are not telling is what they know, as unless they ARE Aliens, they MUST have doubts like all of us. To lose a loved one is as bad
in any culture. After the Hype of the deaths of the Bali Bombers, those mothers will cry for their sons, if not on the outside then surely on the
inside, thats what makes us HUMAN-love. But if there were not such 'monsters' then neither we, nor our own ancestors would never learn and nor would
their children. Maybe occasonally we need a [natural] jolt to remind us that we are not the all powerful, controlling beings we are. Global warming?
We are causing it, and we are learning, and soon, someone will come up with something not so destructive. At the end of the 1900's inventors were
saying, "we have invented all that can be invented and the world is as good as it will get!" Since then look at what has been invented in the 20th
Century! Flight, Phones and Communications of ALL types, TV, Radio for entertainment and communication, new music new instruments, new foods, flowers,
types of clothes and footwear. I am sure the 'inventors could come up with a similar line at the end of the last Millenium...but this time they were
wise enough to shut up and not be so closed. I for one, look forward to the second coming of Jesus,no matter where He's from. Did anyone ever say
Heaven was not a Galaxy? (please don't quote me,these are merely my thoughts and maybe the dinasaurs are living happily in Heaven,on the other side
of another Galaxy being prepared for what our world has gone through in its history. I just hope they casually leave a few "how to not upset your
fellow man" self help books around like they did for us. Lets just hope the next Planet has more sense to read them. It may be wise to add, all
religious doctrine is about PEACE and LOVE, it is MAN who interprets it. We had the rules handed to us-dont kill, love, dont steal..etc and we learned
the consequences even back then!No, we STILL havent, have we. Dad, I hope you are waiting for me and that this was just a really clever experiment
where we all get to live forever together in bliss apart from the odd 70 years on this planet, give or take a few decades. I Love God no matter who He
is and where He is from. I'd be in his next movie for sure!!!
I, for one find it harder to beleive in a random explosion in space creatying the exact conditios for all types of life to 'evolve' over millions of
years, than I do the 'not so literal" story of Adam and Eve. Personally I think Adam and Eve may have been either Races, or Generations. And no, I
have no idea if I am right or wrong, I will have to wait until I die. I find it VERY hard to beleive we are here for nothing. I also don't think a
God sends His family to eternal war in Hell. No Parent loves War.
