UNLESS, there's a galactic empire. in which case, who knows!
i read a book called GOD'S PLAN FOR MAN, by Finis Jennings Dake. he wrote it like one year after roswell (in the 1940s). In it, he claims the planet is ancient, and that before the human dispensation on earth, the planet belonged to a race of angels (a prior creation). the seraph, to be specific. they grew technologically, and went out to colonize the other planets and moons in our solar system and beyond. there was a galactic war, because apparently, the galactic government in place didn't like what the earth seraph were doing, and a space war worthy of the scifi channel, broke out. kinda makes ya wonder about george lucas, doesn't it? anyway, dake claims the seraph of earth lost the war, and the ice age was the result, and that they were the "fallen angels" as the text calls them.
so don't be so sure that what's in that book isn't also going on out there in the great beyond we call outer space. loledit on 29-6-2011 by undo because: (no reason given)
Here's a little support for your OP from a non-christian and non-religious person. Thumbs up to explaining the religious background of current world events more deeply.
People must learn and understand that world history is shaped by beliefs and spiritual factors or remain forever ignorant.
The implication of of course, by the Abrahamic Religions, is that these events must come to pass. The ontological question that immediately arises is whether it is our duty to change prophecy and proceed in peace or fullfill prophecy and wage the final war and demarcation for good vs. evil.
Those who oppose you will suggest the former, the abrahamic tend to suggest the latter. What is your stance on this?
Edit - Oh and to add. Atheistic governments? LOL. MMmhmm sure
'im sorry but I can't take anythign anybody religious comes out with.. religion = biggest cause of death on the planet, please wake up to yourself Sir.
did you mean to say religion or religious person? anybody can connect the simple dots in your thoughts there, even accusing me of being a problem because i offered a defense from that accusation. what? did you expect people to just sit here and let you take pot shots like ducks in a shooting gallery ?
karl marx actually thought starving the farmers to death was a good object lesson for the people, who were mostly catholic christians, because it would prove to them that god does not exist and therefore they should look to their government and fellow man for their hope. when prayer didn't solve their dilemma and some of them began to cannabalize one another for food, he felt as if he had gained a victory and a very powerful object lesson for the rest of the people to learn from. now i dunno how you could call that religious. do you know something i don't?

You should research the Zyklon B - pope connection in WW2.
