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.

The attraction of the earth

"Ray you don't know the first thing about science. You're the guy who thought falling violated Gravity." BathTub

Physics.about.com says: "Newton's law of gravity defines the attractive force between all objects that possess mass. Understanding the law of gravity, one of the fundamental forces of physics, offers profound insights into the way our universe functions." So, I’m not the only one who believes that there is such a thing as "the law of gravity," and if it's a law, it can be violated.

If you hit the ground at 120 mph from 1,000 feet, you will suffer the consequences of violating what physics.about.com calls the law of gravity. If you will remember the context in which I called gravity a law--I said that if you break the law of gravity, you will suffer the consequences, and if you violate God’s Law you will suffer the consequences--"The soul that sins, it shall die."

You would say that if someone hit the ground at 120 mph it was because the earth attracted them, and they of course were unwillingly attracted to it. Both explanations are right, but for the sake of the analogy I was using, mine makes more sense.

Then again, God’s Law will one day arrest you and punish you for transgressing its precepts, (in the same way that civil law is "attracted to" and arrests a murderer). You will of course be an unwilling participant, and try vainly to escape. So your explanation would work, in that context.

I hope my explanation helps, and that because of it you will be able to move onto other reasons as to why you think I know nothing about science.

P.S. Milo said, "If anything, you seem to mean if you ignore or disregard the law of gravity there will be consequences."

Okay. I was wrong. Please forgive me. I will change it to make my point. If you ignore the law of gravity, there will be consequences, and it you ignore the Law of God (or pretend that it doesn’t exist), you will suffer the consequence of eternal damnation. Thanks Milo for your help.
