Greetings Beautiful-Breathing-Fragile-Life! How are You doing today?? i HOPE Your day is going well. THANK YOU for making my post a part of Your day!🙂 Hope You’re feeling well. Me, i caught a bug…not a cute ladybug, but a nasty cold -lol…AChOOOoOoOoOo…excuse me. Finally feeling better today. My head’s starting to clear.
Seriously, i need some fresh Air…how about YOU??
POINTS for PONDERING:
Some Scientists/Cosmologists/Leaders remind me of cocky kids (teenagers). (FYI: i have nothing against teens, scientists, cosmologists or real leaders/thinkers/innovators, etc.)…just acknowledging attitude: some go through the (including me) “i’m invincible stage and i got it all figured out!”:) Specifically, the teen that knows/believes/is thoroughly convinced he/she knows way more than old Mom & Dad..(meanwhile, most of us former teens, former twenty-somethings, etc. given life-experience and maturity from the school of hard-knocks…eventually grow UP/grow out of it…realize hey, Mom & Pop weren’t so dumb after all!:)…may be, they did know a thing or two about life…
Same “I’m invincible–got this all figured out!” lingering attitude with certain scientists/evolutionists/elitist thinkers/fake leaders governmental, religious or otherwise who refuse to…i don’t know: grow UP…acknowledge the “idea” of or belief in a Master-Designer/Creator/”Father” of the universe who possibly could/does know a little more than we do about how this universe and life…really work!
(Hey, some kids, teens, adults, etc. have a closer relationship with their parents than others…sadly, some are never quite able to reconcile those foundation relationships.) I’m sure you would agree, all kids are better off with loving, non-abusive, attentive parents in their lives that provide guidance and care for them…why not extend that thought to the realm of spirituality:
Is man better off without God (Heavenly/Spiritual Father)?!…
some people never know their real and/or biological Father in this life…may be, some never know their real and/or spiritual Father either??…(would you not agree: a Real-Spiritual Father is VERY unlike a fake-spiritual father…who dresses in a cassock and likes to abuse little boys.)
My heart breaks for all the Beautiful-Breathing-Fragile-Life out there who have never known a real father or real mother! THANK YOU for being Kind to Everyone who crosses your path today!:)
PLEASE check this out: excerpts from an article i enJOYed: A Universe Full of Surprises…(i like some Surprises–don’t You?!) i highlighted noteworthy points:
“JUST a century ago, scientists believed that the entire universe was contained within our galaxy, the Milky Way. During the 20th century, however, major advances in astronomy, physics, and technology revealed the breathtaking scale of the cosmos. Some of the discoveries have also been humbling. For example, in recent decades astronomers have come to the realization that they do not know what makes up over 90 percent of the universe. What is more, the discoveries that led to that conclusion have caused scientists to question their understanding of the fundamentals of physics itself. Of course, such questions are nothing new.”
In 1998, researchers analyzing light from a special kind of supernova, or exploding star, found evidence that the expansion of the universe is actually accelerating! At first, the scientists were skeptical, but evidence soon mounted. Naturally, they wanted to know what form of energy was causing the accelerating expansion. For one thing, it seemed to be working in opposition to gravity; and for another, it was not predicted by present theories. Appropriately, this mysterious form of energy has been named dark energy, and it may make up nearly 75 percent of the universe!
Dark energy, however, is not the only “dark” oddity discovered in recent times. Another was confirmed in the 1980’s when astronomers examined various galaxies. These galaxies, as well as our own, appeared to be spinning too fast to hold together. Evidently, then, some form of matter must be giving them the necessary gravitational cohesion. But what kind of matter? Because scientists have no idea, they have called the stuff dark matter, since it does not absorb, emit, or reflect detectable amounts of radiation. How much dark matter is out there? Calculations indicate that it could make up 22 percent or more of the mass of the universe.
Consider this: According to current estimates, normal matter accounts for about 4 percent of the mass of the universe. The two big unknowns—dark matter and dark energy—appear to make up the balance. Thus, about 95 percent of the universe remains a complete mystery! *
(* Wikipedia: According to the Planck mission team, and based on the standard model of cosmology, the total mass–energy of the universe contains 4.9% ordinary matter, 26.8% dark matter and 68.3% dark energy. Thus, dark matter is estimated to constitute 84.5% of the total matter in the universe. )…joanie talking now: whether it’s 84.5% or 95%…means little…there’s still A LOT unknown….
“Science is in search of answers, but all too often one set of answers leads to another layer of puzzles. This fact calls to mind a profound statement recorded in the Bible at Ecclesiastes 3:11. It reads: “Everything [God] has made pretty in its time. Even time indefinite he has put in their heart, that mankind may never find out the work that the true God has made from the start to the finish.”
“Of course, at present we can absorb only limited amounts of knowledge because of our short life span, and much of that knowledge is speculative, subject to change. But that situation is temporary, for God has purposed: “But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” (Psalm 37:11) According to the Bible, God/Yahweh promises to grant to those (who don’t ruin the earth)/faithful humans…endless life in Paradise on earth, where they can examine his handiwork for an eternity and thus gain true knowledge.” ~A Universe Full of Surprises.
Hmmm…thinking…unending life…possible?! Check this out: How long can we live?!
“Someone born at the end of the 18th century in North America or Western Europe could expect to live to be 35 or 40 years of age. Today, men and women in the United States can expect to live to about 71 and 78 respectively, and similar improvements have been made in other countries. We are realizing more of our potential as far as longevity is concerned. But is there a limit to how far life expectancy can be extended?…what medical science has learned about aging and death is based on the human condition as we see it today.The crucial question is whether the human condition has always been the same or whether it will always remain the same. God’s promise is: “Look! I am making all things new.”…“he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”—Revelation 21:4, 5.”
(*Wikipedia: This is a list of countries by life expectancy at birth….read at your own discretion like any other reading including my writing.)
Transforming the mind by thinking in “spiritual” terms and using logic…takes me to here: If man cannot cure the “common” cold…(though, i guess? i’m thankful (kinda) for the tissues to blow my nose that man’s provided)…however, what about all the trees that have been cut down and are being cut down as i write this?? Been trying to find “exact” figures on how many trees are cut down a day?? Do you know??…and the “common” cold is really nothing in comparison to all man’s “uncommon” ills and woes (the other health issues and social/economic issues/challenges facing life on this planet)…
WHY?? continue to look to the same places/leaders/scientists/peers/doctors for NO real (long-lasting) solutions or comfort and NO real (different) answers to mind-boggling problems/questions?? Maybe, it’s time to grow-up and ask dear-old Dad for some guidance…(and you know? my Dad always uses handkerchiefs! i better get some.)
If there is a Master-Designer, Creator, Spiritual-Father, Yahweh (for context check out: A little Music–Transform Your Mind)..i’m positive he knows a lot more than me… about our Amazing Universe and everything else.
Question for Consideration:
If You could ask God anything…what would You want to know?!
Maybe? You’ll get a real answer…a NICE surprise.
Happy Week-end and Good Health to You!:)
