Quote# 15463

New Jerusalem is made of eternal transparent gold, and it will land on an eternal earth here. In heavens that are eternal, and where trees gow a different fruit in some cases every single month of the year.
Human eternal bodies there will be composed of eternal matter, like the ressurected body of Jesus, that could appear, and go through doors, and yet was physical also, and could eat, and drink.
This means that Christians by and large accept that a different state of the universe is coming. This is what we believe. We the majority of Christians on earth.
A heaven where animals like lions will again eat straw like an ox, as originally created. A place where we can fly, even the horses can fly. A place where angels and God walk, and live, as well as us.
A state unlike the present one.
We do not appreciate those who, with no possible evidence claim that our galaxy will crash, sun burn out, and earth fade away one day, especially to children.
Stop it please.

Does that mean that your shit won't stink either, oh wait, I guess it doesn't now.

The irony of his second to last sentence is almost mind destroyingly funny.

\"New Jerusalem is made of eternal transparent gold,\"

How will we know it's gold?


\"and it will land on an eternal earth here.\"

Yeah, and Revelation says it will be a 1500 mile cube, putting most of it outside the atmosphere. Who wants to live in a huge, transparent Borg ship with no air?


\"In heavens that are eternal, and where trees gow a different fruit in some cases every single month of the year.\"

Did you read that in a comic book or just pull it out of your butt?


\"Human eternal bodies there will be composed of eternal matter,\"

As opposed to what?


\"like the ressurected body of Jesus, that could appear, and go through doors, and yet was physical also, and could eat, and drink.\"

Sounds like some kind of Halloween story.


\"This means that Christians by and large accept that a different state of the universe is coming. This is what we believe. We the majority of Christians on earth.\"

I'm pretty sure that you, dad, do not speak for the majority of Christians. The world is in deep, deep trouble if you do.


\"A heaven where animals like lions will again eat straw like an ox, as originally created. A place where we can fly, even the horses can fly.\"

Sounds like heaven will be a place to wear a hat.


\"A place where angels and God walk, and live, as well as us.\"

Unlike reality where God and angels are just delusions, not walking or living at all.


\"A state unlike the present one.\"

Unlike the states of fatigue and disinterest I develop when reading your posts?


\"We do not appreciate those who, with no possible evidence claim that our galaxy will crash, sun burn out, and earth fade away one day, especially to children.\"

I don't know about the crashing galaxy assertion, but the sun WILL eventually burn out and the earth WILL eventually be destroyed. There is evidence to support these assertions.


\"Stop it please.\"

No. Just knowing that reading about scientific research twists your undies is enough reason for me to continue proclaiming it.

If my dad ever talked like this I'd put him away.

But dealing with his post, as a Christian, it's people like dad that really, truly piss me off. His ridiculous statements just make the Christian faith look ludicrous. The fact that he seems to think he speaks for the majority of Christians is just infuriating. I know a lot of Christians and not a single one of them thinks that a giant moon-sized golden city is going to descend upon the earth.

This guy is just plain loony-toons.

I imagine dad is awfully fat from all the cake he has taken. This one takes it again.

Once again, let me reiterate: dad does not speak for all dads. Just the crazy, fundamentalist wacko ones.

Aaaah. dad's a Fleetwood Mac fan I see.

If I could turn the page
In time then Id rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldnt find a way
So Ill settle for one day to believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you cant disguise
(you cant disguise, no you cant disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

Although Im not making plans
I hope that you understand theres a reason why
Close your, close your, close your eyes

No more broken hearts
Were better off apart lets give it a try
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you cant disguise
(you cant disguise, no you cant disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies

If I could turn the page
In time then Id rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes

But I couldnt find a way
So Ill settle for one day to believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you cant disguise
(you cant disguise, no you cant disguise)

Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you cant disguise
(you cant disguise, no you cant disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(tell me, tell me lies)

How about those of us WITH evidence? Are we allowed to talk about it?

I love the fact that the talk of Earth being uninhabitable billions of years into the future is distressing, yet daddykins is quite happily telling them all about the Armageddon that will \"definitely\" occur in their lifetime and somehow that is good news.

9/30/2006 2:30:08 AM

My Brain Hurts

The idea that the sun will super-nova in billions of years is less distressing to me than a heaven where flying animals are defecating everywhere; while flying, in the air, above my head, while I sleep, and on the fruit trees.

RUN, RUN, the horse just ate and it's FLYING THIS WAY!!!!

Transparent gold, doesn't that defet the purpose of the gold as to look perty?

\"that could appear, and go through doors\"
What if heaven for us is privacy? You sertently wont want to do some thing infront of God and Jesus?

\"lions will again eat straw\"
I think they are happy to be eating meat, and I doubt that they want to eat straw.

\"where trees gow a different fruit in some cases every single month of the year.\"
Goodie, I get to eat from the tree of knolage that started this huge mess and screw humanity again...all 500billion of them.

\"We do not appreciate those who, with no possible evidence claim that our galaxy will crash, sun burn out, and earth fade away one day, especially to children.\"
And I didn't like it when I was forced to spend over 400 hours a year in a church singing songs about dead people.

Oh, dad!!!! I should have known it was you!!!! :D

I love dad so much, he's my favorite fundie. He creates these amazing fantastical worlds like that. And he believes them. o_o It must be interesting to live in his head.

Glyptodon - It's plenty roomy, that's for sure!

Oh wait.... [Real Estate Speak] Spacious, rambling apartment with quaint decor and a traditional ambience. Few mod cons, but an American Gothic charm. Must see to believe! [/Real Estate Speak]

A place where we can fly, even the horses can fly.

[/quote]A place where angels and God walk[/quote]

God and the angels don't get to fly? Looks like they are on the short end of the deal.

But as a whole? I think that this will happen when pigs fly.

Picture yourself in boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalde skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she’s gone.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you’re gone.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Whenever these guys talk about lions not eating meat (Why always lions, for fucks sake? Are there lions in your country? Can't you think of any other dangerous carnivores?), does anyone else get a vision of the anaemic lion on Futurama? :-P

We do not appreciate those who, with no possible evidence claim that a New Jerusalem will descend from the Heavens, that lions will eat straw, and horses fly, especially to children.
Stop it please.

The evidence is there: given our understanding of the reactions that take place in the core of the sun, there simply isn't enough fuel to continue it forever.
