I was watching this trailer and I was wondering what /christian/'s thoughts were about life elsewhere in this universe

043897 No.480761

>>480755

it's quite possible given the size of the universe and the fact that God likes to create.

why do you ask?


2b8794 No.480772

Bible says adam was the first human. Not the only human. Not the only sentient species either for that matter.

Extraterrestrial life is total possible.


6911ad No.480787

I don't believe in aliens, they are entirely a construction of scientists wet dreams. The argument that the universe is so large that there MUST be other life only makes sense if you think life occurs randomly anyway.

If there were Aliens then they would be there because God put them there maybe they even have their own incarnation of the son who knows, i still think they are not real and are made up because Steven Hawkins wants to fuck some grey goo.

Going by pure science, it's unlikely life ever existed anywhere in the universe besides here. Well, if life didn't already exist here, life would be considered impossible all together. Abiogenesis is impossible without divine interference. Since the Bible never mentions aliens, I have no real reason to think they exist. UFOs are probably demons though.

Rather than materialist science (with its own assumptions), I mostly refer to the fact that there really isn't any good data suggesting that abiogenesis by natural means is possible. Many cientists would assert that it's possible, but that's mostly because they assume that even if it is inexplicable, abiogenesis by natural means occurred on Earth one way or another and that the uniform is (on the macroscale) uniformly distributed. If something happened once in the universe, it can and will happen again multiple times by the logical conclusion of the latter assumption.

Watched the whole Amish documentary, it's really about a small group of Amish being spiritually reborn, a reformation within their community if you think about it. The religion they practice is extremely legalistic (Isaiah 29:13). I was very touched by this documentary back when I was unsaved, I do believe even to this day they did their little part to help me come to Jesus Christ.

Through Adam, ALL sinned.

For extraterrestrial life to exist, there'd have to be a separate incarnation of Christ for every species. On top of that, "all creation groans" because of te Fall caused by Adam and Eve. Are you saying that God would have another species millions of light years away suffer for OUR wrongdoing?

>>480755

Perhaps not now, but it's possible that there will be more created beings in the future. Plus, who needs ayy lmaos anyway when you have:

>Warrior/messenger beings

>Six-winged bodyguard animals

It's possible sin would only apply to here on Earth and not outside of this world per se. Although I wouldn't know exactly where to draw the boundary.

We have a scientific community that is now being forced to grapple with the evidence. A large proportion of scientists are now some kind of theist. They are grappling with the evidence.

Mark 16:9-20 was added later so it needs to be cross-referenced with the other three gospels. It's just a summary concerning Jesus Christ. Preaching the gospel to every creature can be interpreted as, preaching the gospel to the whole world as in Matthew 24:14:

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.

I think it's dangerous to talk about this kind of stuff, especially if you're not firmly rooted in Christ. I understand why some will try to shy away from this topic, but we are all to a certain degree firmly rooted in our faith in Christ Jesus. On top of that, many of us are from different Christian denominations so I think we can have a healthy debate on this subject from many different perspectives.

The Bible never mentions any other sentient life. That Man was created in God's image. However, this does not necessarily preclude other life being created. In Scripture, we see God created other beings of the angelic class (cherubim, seraphim, etc.) and that man will one day even rule over angels as well.

>Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? (1 Corinthians 6:3)

The above Bible verse, along with Jesus Christ giving parables about us granted control of kingdoms and rulers over such from God hints that there is more to Heaven than just going there and enjoying our mansion room.

Howard Storm is a born-again Christian and I genuinely believe he is saved and has a relationship with Jesus Christ. If you cross-reference Howard Storm's testimony with Mormonism (which is a false religion, denies Jesus Christ as the Son of God, etc.), you'll see something interesting parallels where Mormons believe they will become their own gods and rule over other planets and frequently talk about other life on other planets in this Universe, celestial kingdom, and such. I believe this is where Mormons believe theirs is the right faith when they read the Bible, because they cherry-pick Bible verses such as God giving them kingdoms and believe that is speaking directly to their faith while no other Christian denomination even touches this topic with a 10-ft pole.

I believe Satan, since he fell from the third Heaven, would have knowledge of this kind of stuff and created a false religion that implants many ideas from that realm into human consumable knowledge. I think Mormonism is very crude in their representation of "Heaven" because it appears they literally believe their god resides in some star-system in our current dying Universe. However, from Howard Storm's testimony and other prophecies I've read, it appears God is so much more than that, and that Heaven is truly indescribable in human words and that these terms like mansion and such are just representations because Heaven resides in some other dimension and it's very hard for us to comprehend.

I'll admit I don't know where humans fit into the big picture and how Jesus Christ, the Son of God who came in the flesh, would be represented in these other worlds and creations. At this point, I only have one source and haven't been able to cross-reference it. However, we can draw from the Bible how Jesus Christ will reign on this Earth as a righteous King. Perhaps if mankind didn't sin, perhaps if Adam and Eve were able to successfully overcome temptation and Satan thrown into the Lake of Fire along with his fallen angels, that Adam and Eve would replenish this Earth and Jesus Christ would come and reign as King and they would live in peace and harmony. Something to think about and how if God made other Creation how it would play out over there.

Frankly speaking, Its hard for me to conclude your final statement, but what I have got from your post, it does agree with mainline Christian teachings.

Above all creations, men was exalted. And yes, we were created for Domination. One of the first attributes, that God grants mankind in first chapter of Genesis is Domination, As God bestows His creation to us. And yes, Mormons got this in a very weird and somewhat retarded way, but it is true, that we shall have, being made in His image, foremost attribute of God fully revealed after Judgment day: Domination.

My problem here stands regarding accepting others as equals to us, even in theory (I will go to a practical part downwards). Consider the following: In your quote, we will rule Angels. This also does include their inferiority. Now take an account all the traditional sources, regarding their glory, beauty, intelligence and so on and that Angels are closest to come to Human, In fact, in traditional cathodox statements, Guardian Angel is regarded to be humans closest kin. And even through this, they are considered inferior. Now lets think that if such magnificent creatures, as Angels have this position, what can we say about theoretical sentient life, whose existence is more of a product of a science fantasy.

So even if sentient life exists, we should not consider them their equals. But we dont have to worry about that, since the chance of this is miserable. Now lets consider the fact, that most who propagate for this theory are atheists, agnostics and so on and so fort, who at the same time propagate theory of evolution.I have to admit, I accept theory in evolution, regarding non-human lives only, as it fails to show us how consciousness, self awareness, morals and so on are formed. Also if we apply theory of evolution, it always mean survival of the fittest. Not who can think of high morals, because it will largely annihilate it, by showing weakness in survival. So its not a coincidence, that Steven Hawking said, that if alien life will be discovered, it will be space cockroaches.

So to come to a conclusion: Christian shall state that even if other sentient life exists, it shall be inferior to us and atheists, who propagate for alien life, states that this alien life will nearly-definitely wont be as humans, in terms of morality, sentience and so on. So by both views Humans are unique: One states that they were made as gods (psalm 82:6) and other one states, that they are absolute anomaly of evolution.
