On top of that, many people are taught that science is too hard to understand. The truth is, pretty much anything can be made to seem to hard to understand. If someone uses really big words – words that are only known to the “insiders” in whatever field it may be – anyone on the “outside” probably wouldn’t have a clue what’s being talked about. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
One of the warnings we get from Jesus is this – Mt 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” Like I said – the question of who gets credit for “evolution” – whether it’s atheistic or theistic evolution – is a huge deal. Who gets the credit, from your point of view?
Given that I’m a “lowly mortal” and not perfect – I need to be sure you get this next part. What is suggested here is only a possibility – a possible explanation of why we might perceive these 11 dimensions. I make no statement as to what God actually did, does or will do. It’s an explanation of how the Bible and science might be much more in line than many people think – as opposed to the all too easy position to take that the Bible and science are totally at odds with each other.
Without recognizing that we are special because we have the breath of life from God – I supposed there’s a lot to be afraid of. Thinking that machines will self-actualize, like HAL in 2001 A Space Odyssey, could lead one to be afraid of AI. Knowing that it takes the breath of God to make us what we are, leads one to not be afraid of AI. No matter how smart we may think we are – we don’t have, and never will have, the ability to give anything the breath of life from God. No. It’s not AI that we need to be afraid of. …
Are We Alone?
While science looks for an answer, the Bible actually provides one. No – we are not alone. The puzzling thing about that answer is that too often we want nothing to do with it. Instead of asking whether findings are evidence of the God of the Bible, He is ignored while we look for someone / something else.
