You agree with this scientist "100%" because you share share the same faith that God won't let this planet become inhospitable to his creations. Of course, this ignores the fact that there have been 5 major extinction events on this planet. The most recent, 65 million years ago, destroyed all larger land animals. Weren't these God's creations, too?<quoted text>
I agree with this scientist 100%; not because of my belief in God, but because without a cleanup mechanism that we don't understand yet, our existence on this planet would have ended long ago.
So, you admit that we could change the planet in a way that would make mankind extinct? That would suggest that we can't count on God to protect us from our bad choices.<quoted text>
If we set off every nuke on earth, all we could do is kill every living thing on it, but we cannot destroy the planet. It's just not possible.
"A few hundred years or so"? This is just magical thinking on your part. It took a billion years for the simplest life forms to emerge on our planet. It took more than 4 billion years for those primitive forms to evolve into human beings.<quoted text>
If we set off every nuke on earth, all we could do is kill every living thing on it, but we cannot destroy the planet. It's just not possible. And in a few hundred years or so and God's will, some sort of life would start all over again.
