Unfortunately for us, climate change IS here, and we are living in it. So what shall we do? Shall we try to restrict emissions so we dont drive ourselves into extinction? Or allow unrestrained emissions and let ourselves go extinct? Which do you prefer?

The earth will be renewed or recreated. The righteous will be in heaven and the wicked in hell. "The meek will inherit the earth."

You're so unintelligent, immature, unjust and fanatical.

Grow up, Papa.

If you're so touchy about Judaism and Jews and Israel, then is posting unfavorable comments about other religions and communities fine with you?

If you're so sensitive about criticism, why bother coming online?

When have you rushed to defend other faiths and non-Jewish people?

Please remember that I'm a free thinker, on a very high plane of intellect and poise and hold no brief for any religion, cult, community, scripture, nation or prophet.

I am not here to pamper anyone's ego or suck up to his parochial beliefs.

I am here to expose the rot, superstition and evil in every religion, nation, tribe, prophet, scripture, philosophy and science.

I find you adorable in many ways.

Lots of Love and best regards,

Joel (your son)

Perhaps you missed the prophets speaking of a Messiah?
I am a KARAITE who believes Jeshua is the Messiah.
If you believe Jesus is the messiah, you worship a dead god and an idol. You obviously don't have a good understanding of the Hebrew scriptures and have ignored the prophets. Name one prophecy that Jesus fulfilled, just one?

God will not allow us to go extinct. There is a saying in the NT which probably comes from the old, "...except those days be shortened there should no flesh be saved alive" This occurred almost 30 years ago when God the Messiah ended the cold war. This was accomplished by 2 speeches, the first fulfilled Zech. 6:1-8 "...these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country" If you're old enough to remember, the USSR had just shot down the Korean civilian airliner 007 and the whole world was down on them. We were right on the verge of all out global, nuclear warfare, Reagan took the credit for this but it was because of him that we were so close to complete annihilation.

If GOd will not allow us to go extinct, why is letting us go extinct?

"The wicked is reserved to the day of destruction, they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath. It's all part of the plan. The Lord is a God of second chances and will plead with all flesh. It aint over til it's over and that's when we die and we'll be judged. It may very well be that there will be no more humans, just angels but I don't think so, the angels will also inhabit the earth

I believe you might be alluding to "thou shalt not MURDER" or as it is said in the native text
"Lo t'ratzach"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou_shalt_not_k...
You shall not murder sometimes translated as You shall not kill, KJV Thou shalt not kill (LXX &#959;&#8016; &#966;&#959;&#957; &#949;&#973;&#963; &#949;&#953;&#962; , translating Hebrew &#1500;&#1465;&#14 88; &#1514;&#1460;&#14 68;&#1512;&#1456;& #1510;&#1464;&#1495; lo tir&#7779;a&#7717;), is a moral imperative included as one of the Ten Commandments in the Torah,[1] specifically Exodus 20:13 and Deuteronomy 5:17.
The imperative is against unlawful killing resulting in bloodguilt. The Hebrew Bible contains numerous prohibitions against unlawful killing, but also allows for justified killing in the context of warfare, capital punishment, and self-defense.
So a drone killing of an innocent child is justified under the auspices of war?

Ratsach, like many other words, has a wide range of meaning, and thus its meaning in a particular verse must be determined from both the immediate and remoter contexts. Thankfully, the Bible has a lot to say about murder, manslaughter, the execution of criminals and killing in war, and it is easy to tell by studying all the verses on the subject that the Sixth Commandment means not to take a life unjustly. Bible commentators are not confused by the commandment,“You shall not kill.” Maxie Dunnam wrote about the Sixth Commandment in the Mastering the Old Testament commentary on Exodus:
According to Genesis 9:6, this commandment did not prohibit the death penalty. It is obvious in the Old Testament that this [Sixth Commandment] was not a prohibition against all killing, only unauthorized killing.[1]
Because the Bible has clear teaching on murder and manslaughter, and because saying,“You shall not kill,” confuses people about killing in self-defense, in war and the execution of criminals, most modern versions properly translate ratsach in the Sixth Commandment as “murder.” For example:
New King James Version: You shall not murder.
Revised English Bible: Do not commit murder.
New International Version: You shall not murder.
New American Standard Bible: You shall not murder.
New Revised Standard Version: You shall not murder.
Amplified Bible: You shall not commit murder.
New English Bible: You shall not commit murder.
Tanakh (Jewish Publication Society): You shall not murder.
The above versions of the Bible were produced by teams of scholars with differing theological backgrounds, including Protestant, Anglican, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Jewish scholars. It should be clear from the evidence that the Sixth Commandment is not about the death penalty, but about unjust killing, that is, murder.
"unauthorized killing" implies that killing could be authorized, by who?

People will never go extinct, all those in heaven will live forever. That is the purpose of life, to live. God created mankind because she was lonely and she wants everybody to live beyond this short earthly life in heaven forever. Angels are immortal.

False.
Christianity has thrown Judaism out. Jesus taught we must observe the Torah, not the paganized pretend christian 'holydays'.
My DNA still says JEW...
"Jew" is both an ethnicity and a religion. A Jew cannot change his genes but can change his religion. Jewish and Christian are terms that are mutually exclusive, you can't be both at the same time (belief wise) Christianity is idolatry and is expressly forbidden in the torah.

Ok - I get it. You are a religious fundamentalist who is a denier of science.
