It is plain to notice in our visible cosmos the pattern of branching that is repeated for each system. From logarithmic spirals and spiral galaxies to root systems and tree branches. Everything is a miracle of design and each system will follow patterns specific to each kind. The divine hand of God was at work with the whole proportion of our material existence.

Then there's the colliding galaxies with massive destruction. Black holes consuming everything with in their reach. Some miracle.

From my understanding, this whole universe will roll up like a scroll and pass away and a New Heaven and a New Earth will replace it, where there is no death or destruction.

I believe Jesus has gone to prepare for a place that he has made clean for whosoever will believe in him and it will not fall into disrepare, but will be clean forever. We can not imagine such a place, because here on this earth we have known entrophy and death.

On a beach watching the sunset, or facing east and watching the sunrise, laying in a field making love and looking up at the stars at night, and the human body and all its intricacies, functions and complexity these places are where I see evidence of a very powerful creator being, which we call God. To say this is all an accident which occurred "somehow" just seems to me ludicrous at best.

You will have to excuse me if your understanding doesn't mean squat to me.

I was giving my understanding of the scriptures that are related to this universe and how it will end. It really doesn't matter to me who cares or don't care about me.

I care about people and I don't want anyone to be in the dark. I don't really worry about what people think of me.

It seems to matter a great deal to you or you wouldn't be posting here in the first place.

And yet you come on here advocating a life ignoring facts and extolling your virtues as one of the annointed. You may not worry about what people think, but you definitely want them to know.

If that was the case, you would not even consider ascribing to a religion that teaches killing is only okay if they disagree with you or are children.

Your fond wishes are the source of your inability to think clearly.

I would prefer that we work towards minimising destruction ourselves, than rely on fond wishes.

You mean you don't find God in the maggot infested stench of a communal latrine in Maputo?

You forgot to mention the miraculous way that the outlines of puddles are perfectly shaped to contain the water in them.(kudos to Douglas Adams)

It doesn't matter who wishes what, it is what it is. I don't really want to suffer and die, but I know it will probably happen to me some day. Every one must die and then face judgement. There is only one way to be made acceptable to our Creator and that is through and by the power of his Son Jesus who holds th keys to the kingdom to come.

Water is a product of a system and water finds its own level....
