Human beings have always known that
their lives are finite, and that this world is finite. But some
have always tried to define the opposite...the Infinite..
finite terms:"billions of this and billions of that". And they
keep being surprised when they keep failing. Make a stronger
Hubble and you'll find more and more. But you'll never be able to
get your arms around the Infinite -
at least perhaps until
those fortunates among us actually end our finite lives and enter
..thanks to a very merciful God.
This is what many scientists and others who are atheists refuse to
accept. Call it Pride. Call it ignorance. It doesn't
matter. For even these people have a chance for the Infinite.
again to a very merciful God.
Are there other beings on other galaxies, also made "in the image and
likeness of God" and also endowed with free will? I don't know,
and I don't care, although I suspect that we are God's only
experiment. If there are, I hope to have a drink with them at the
bar scene in Star-Trek when we all are in the Infinite
with The Infinite.
