  • Would YOU go?

    I would SOOOO take this trip. Anyone else want to tag along?
    (although I'm pretty sure I'm a tad over the age limit - still, it's fun to dream about)

    In my dream where adventure is romantic, I would like to go.

    But I have learned that reality does not care much for romantic notions. That bubble would be burst well before strapping in.

      Hi Julie and Barry,

      I understand the spirit of adventure and I love to go places I have never been. BUT I do not want to go to Iran or Irag right now. I have no desire to be some place that wants to take my life.

      Also count me out for this trip. IT IS ONE WAY. They are not even planning a way to get back. These people will be marooned on Mars.

      When I was young I would have volunteered for the trip to the moon. But now that I am older and have learned some things; I would not want to go to the moon. There is nothing there for me. In fact there was nothing there for mankind it seems.

      I do not say that we should not try to learn more and more about the other bodies in our solar system, but I see no need for us to go there to do so. I think we should spend our efforts making the place The Lord prepared for us a better place.

      But I would definitely not be in for the trip to Mars even if they had a way back. I think the chance of the trip being successful there and back would be slim. I do not want to give my life for such a venture. But I understand those that do.

      The way I look at it is that The Lord Jesus prepared a place for mankind called earth. This is our home that He made for us and I am very thankful everyday for it.

      Now it is true that mankind has turned it from a paradise to a place not nearly as nice. Men have made a miserable place where there are many of them.

      But to get out in nature away from men, it is still a place of such beauty and peacefulness.

      But Mars has no air to breath. Mars is very cold and has an average temp of 81 below zero and it gets as cold as 225 below zero. There are no plants there, and in fact, no life that we can see.

      I would not want to leave a place of life to go to a place that has no life. I would miss the blue sky and the green grass of earth.

      First of all, I do not think this trip will ever take place. I think it is a farce to raise money.

      But even if it does take place, I think it will be a disaster for all that go.

      The chance of them not getting there is very probable. But if they get there I think the people that go will end up with such depression that it will be a total disaster. I think they will have such regret for signing up and they will not be able to do anything about it. For they will be stuck there for as long as they live.

      These are just my thoughts about it. I hope I did not rain on anyone's parade. Many may feel different about this.

        Lou and Baruch, you both have such level heads vs my daydreaming.
        Still...I like to think I will have at least some part of eternity to spend seeing everything in the universe the Lord made.
        And I can hardly wait!!
        In the meantime, I will have to settle for this:

          Thanks for the video Julie.

          I watched it this morning, and thought of many comments to make while watching it. But a man I have been disciplining for over 25 years wanted to spend a few hours with me, and then I had to take my older son to the Pittsburgh airport. I got back just in time to tutor my math student. So now i can not remember any of the comments I wanted to make.

          But i have now remembered one:

          This video gives us a little idea of how far apart the heavenly bodies are from one another.

          This is very strong evidence that it was NOT Moses who wrote Genesis, but it was inspired by God who created it all.

          How would Moses know that these bodies were SEPARATED by such a great space, but The Lord Jesus keeps telling us in Genesis 1 that he separated and kept on separating these bodies. For The Lord keeps saying in Genesis 1 that he separates and gathers over and over again. We know now that is just how it all took place. How would Moses know that 3300 years ago.

          Considering the closest major galaxy is 2 million years away IF we could travel at the speed of light, which of course we can not even come close to going that fast. God really did separate these galaxies.

          The closest star is over 4 years away at the speed of light. but at one million miles per hour it would still take 26 million years to get there. That is the CLOSEST star, or solar system.

          IF humans could tolerate 2 G's of constant acceleration for their lifetime ( that is very doubtful) it would take about 10,000 years to to get up to the one million miles per hour. We can see it would take many generations for humans to travel there. What would they breath, drink, and eat.

          I do not think any man is ever going to even come close to leaving this solar system.

          So we may have to wait until the Lord returns to tour the universe.

          Genesis 1 New International Version (NIV)

          The Beginning

          1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

          3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God calledthe light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
          6 And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters
          to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the vault “sky.”And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.
          9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
          11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.
          14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to
          separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.
          20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.
          24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds:the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
          26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

          27 So God created mankind in his own image,
          in the image of God he created them;
          male and female he created them.


          28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number;fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
          29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
          31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
