And the theory of the size of the Total Universe compared to the Universe

that we can currently observe:

Wow.. so much to discover and even when we live forever it will considerable time to get to know the works of Jehovah

And than when we think we know it all, we'll discover something new and amazing ... imagine if our universe is just part of other universes ..hmmm :whistling:

Who knows?

 

Its an awfully big physical place to assume we are the only physical creatures across sextillions of miles

If there are, and they are intelligent and made in God’s image it would interesting to know what they are like.

Non-evidence based speculation is rife in the scientific community; cf. evolution, multiverse, life elsewhere etc. etc.

 

Truth and facts seem to be inextricably linked. That's why the FDS does so much research to make sure statements are factual and truthful.

True...no evidence. I think Paul was just reasoning on the fact that there are trillions of Planets and or galaxies and life created on only one would seem stranger than if there were others somewhere out there. Doesn't seem far fetched to think that's a real possibility.  

But as you say no evidence. Of course that in itself (no evidence) doesn't preclude no other life far from here (besides Angels). Just interesting to consider....not like those who state speculation as fact.

 

Has anyone here ever been abducted by aliens....beside Richard and Greg down under?  :alien:  :lol1:

This speculation has been discussed over and over on this forum, and the bottom line really is that it casts doubt on the issue of Universal Sovereignty and the necessity of Jesus' ransom sacrifice.

The speculation of life elsewhere raises the speculation of whether it predates earth's population. If it does then the issue of  Sovereignty would likely have arisen before, and the current situation on earth would not exist. If it does not predate man on earth, then why would Jehovah create other life forms while the issue of Sovereignty is pending?

In those terms, is it reasonable that there is life elsewhere?

Not necessarily. Take the Angels for example. They were created individually as opposed to humans. God created Adam and Eve and then they procreated. When Adam sinned Jehovah had to deal with their unborn children differently because they inherited sin and death. This required a ransom. 

 

On the other hand, the Angels do not reproduce and so each one has to be dealt with separately and distinctly. A ransom would not be required for them. If they sin they die permanently  as Adam did as a perfect being. They have no children to pass on sin and death to, and would not need a ransom.

 

Now, if....and that of course is just a big speculative if...other beings were created on other planets in a galaxy far far away, and they were created without the ability to procreate, then the issues here on earth would not apply the same way. Just as Jehovah has dealt with the Angels in a different way than with Adam's offspring. :popcorn:

But an angel rebelling against Jehovah (as Satan did) raised the matter of Universal Sovereignty even before humans were in need of a ransom.  Had Adam not sinned and thus his offspring not needed a ransom, the issue of the rightness of God's rule had been raised by Satan, and other angels were watching what would happen.

Maybe those other "beings existing on other planets" (:wink:) were observing or hearing about the sovereignty issue too.

 

So why should life on other far away planets...preclude the sovereignty issue being raised here?
