Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Modern Science

A recent news item said, "Scientists have detected that New Zealand was moved about 30cm (12 inches) closer to Australia by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in the Tasman Sea last week."

There was another report saying,

" . . . on the west coast of the South Island and a 2-inch tsunami reported in the Tasman Sea to the north of the epicenter, according to the U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center."

A whole country moved 12 inches, and a two-inch tsunami. Wow. And people wonder why we lose faith in modern science when they come up with such silliness.

Think of the incredible achievement of landing a man on the moon. When it happened, it was a huge deal. What do we have to show for it 40 years later? A cure to cancer? A cure for the common cold? A permanent solution for starving nations? Nope. We have rocks. Moon rocks.

The CAT scan and a number of other inventions came from the space industry, but think of how much more could have been achieved if those billions had been put into pure science instead of rock-finding.

Now they are talking about landing a man on the moon once again. The estimated cost for more rocks--$100 billion dollars.

However, knowing the Creator and what He has in store for those that love Him, helps bring all this into perspective. There’s no hurry to check out the universe. We will have eternity to do that.
