The GeoChristian

The Earth. Christianity. They go together.

NUKE THE MOON!!!! — U.S. had plans to nuke the moon — The U.S. Government really wanted to explode a nuclear weapon on the moon in the late 1950s, sort of as a macho “We’re better than the Soviets” thing. One of the researchers on this project was a graduate student named Carl Sagan.

BIG NEWS FROM MARS? — Has Curiosity made a Historic Discovery? — Complex organic chemicals? Fossils? Little green men? Elvis? For now, they seem to be keeping the lid down tight on whatever their discovery is.

I have a young-Earth creationist friend who is convinced that there is no life anywhere in the universe but here on Earth. Despite the fact that the Bible doesn’t say anything about the topic. Not all YECs are worried, however.

LOOKING FOR GOOD SEX?Searching for God, settling for sex — An editorial on CNN.com.

In the absence of genuine sexual intimacy (best defined as “in-to-me-see”), we settle for sexual intensity: erotica, pornography, an office romance, an extramarital affair or whatever strokes the ego and provides the sexual high we crave.”

Someday I might write a “50 good reasons to believe Christianity is true” post, and one of the reasons will be that Christianity gets sex right.

PAT ROBERTSON GETS ONE RIGHT — Pat Robertson Challenges Creationism

“I know that people will probably try to lynch me when I say this.”

“You go back in time, you’ve got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things, and you’ve got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas. They’re out there. So, there was a time when these giant reptiles were on the Earth, and it was before the time of the Bible. So, don’t try and cover it up and make like everything was 6,000 years. That’s not the Bible.”

BETTER THAN THE GEOCHRISTIAN — My “Around the Web” posts are a poor imitation of Saturday Ramblings, posted weekly on Internet Monk. In this week’s Saturday Ramblings: Vampires in Serbia, “What Would Jesus Shoot?”, Charisma magazine’s rather goofy article on sex (OK, Christians doesn’t always get sex right), and Jimi Hendrix.

Grace and Peace

  1. As for life on Mars, you say not all YECs are worried. From your link, they are not worried because Mars is in our neighborhood so it is quite easy to picture that Mars’ life came from earth. Would YECs be more uniformly worried if the evidence pointed to life in a different solar system?

    I’ve never had a problem with the possibility of life elsewhere in the universe. As you say, the Bible is silent. But I do wonder if such life were sentient, how that fits in with the ripple effect of the fall through creation. Would it be possible that an alien race remain sinless, in their equivalent of Eden? Would Christ’s need to become one of the aliens to die for the aliens’ sin? How does that fit with Christ dying once for all, never needing to be resacrified? Or did God choose humans to bring His message to the aliens, as He chose Israel to bring His message to all humans? I suspect finding other sentient life in our universe would send the theologians scurrying back to their drawing boards.
