Question: What do you think of the theory that life as we know it will end in 2012?
Ridiculous!
We're all gonna die!
I'm kind of half-and-half.

My goal: get off this planet and leave the doomsdayer religionists here to off themselves with their self-fulfilling prophecy :)   j/k folks

Yes, the idea would be to get off the planet and do what the early pioneers did. They just have to find an easier way of getting up there and a better way of getting from place to place. Current rocket science isn't the way to go.

The funny thing about Christians is that they would have to preach the Gospel as they know it to intelligent alien life forms on other planets outside this solar system which at this moment most of them don't even acknowledge as a possibility. Most see only our earth and human element on this earth as being important enough for God to consider.

I've met a few Christians, and not fringe dwelling whackjobs either, who are convinced that if we ever encounter intelligent alien life, the Judeo-Christian God (the one true God in these people's eyes) will have already revealed himself to them, much like they believe he did here. Since they are a part of His creation, and being intelligent beings, presumably made in His image, they will need salvation also. Never got to ask if Jesus would have appeared to and lived among them also (like an interplanetary version of some Mormon beliefs or some such) , or they were to be made aware of what they needed to know that is supposed to have happened here on Earth.

The world as we know it will end when it ends, I'm not sure how it will end but I'm willing to bet it will be by something we don't know about and couldn't do anything about even if we did. It is just not worth worrying about, fun to talk about, write books about, or even make movies about, but when all is said and done, when it's time, it's time, and all the worry, fear, and prayer won't change the result. Making predictions about it has been a favorite pastime of a lot of people who, you would think, should know better. Still it's an entertaining topic.

 I'm a Christian, of sorts, and I actually believe that there is life on other planets, probably intelligent, and that as such they probably believe in a supreme being, same guy I believe in, but to assume that the Lord would reveal himself to each and every culture in the same way is very foolish.
The thought occurs to me that if the aliens believe in God, and he has revealed himself to them in a different way, then they may try to convert the fundamentalists to their belief system. I'd kind of Like to see a debate between Jerry Falwell from the good old U.S.A. and Brother Gorba from the planet Archerant.

Forgive me, but I haven't hung around Christians in 20 years and didn't realise they had adapted to this possible scenario during that time. Thanks for the info Yaddo and Dennis. I'll bring it up the next time I meet one of them from either earth or Archerant.    Smile
