In my opinion, unless your reference to colonizing space and seed vaults was tongue and cheek, I fail to see the correlation between that, Noah and the end of the world.
The end of the world will surely happen but it will be Gods will and not the will of man or by man making a foolish mistake. To think otherwise is to say that man has the ability to circumvent or speed up Gods plan. Man will surely play a part in the eventual collapse but it will be through the hand of God that these things happen.
Likewise, attempts by man, such as colonizing space etc. to stall the coming of the inevitable is a futile effort and much like the tower of Babble.
The only way to preserve man and all of mankind is through eternal life which has nothing to do with this short vacation we call physical life on this earth. Jesus Christ is the everlasting house of seeds, the space vehicle to the new colony, the hope and promise to us all.
Joe, You're right, of course. My comments about colonizing space and seed vaults was not so much tongue in cheek as it was to show that many people are aware that the end of the world is a possibility.
I see your point John, and most Christians believe that we are in the last days. The Bible does say that no one knows the time -not even the Angels, but we are given signs and prophecy to recognize that the end is near.
I heard you on Coast to Coast A.M. last night; It was very interesting! ( wish I could have stayed awake to here it all!)
If I may, I would like to send you an interesting DVD, of a man who filmed on site of Biblical locations and claims to have found many specific things -- including the ark...I'm curious what you would think of it. You can email me if you like.
how did they build anything with no tools , it was 5,000 years ago and one family couldn't have cut-riped-planed lumber for a boat, ive had logged timber it takes more than a dozen people to move large logs. they had no saws no nothing .cant do all this with rock axes or rock saws. Bob
Bob, Ancient people were a lot more advanced that we sometimes think they were. Look at the pyramids, for instance. You may be interested in a book a friend of mine, Don Landis, wrote, "The Genius of Ancient Man." It's published by Master Books, ISBN is 978-0-89051-677-5 and is available on Amazon.
