Humans must colonize other planets to survive

Did you hear about this? Dr. Stephen Hawking, widely regarded as the smartest man alive, says we must colonize other planets to avoid extinction. This seems like common sense at first; we expand too quickly and use too many resources to be sustained by this one planet. But could it simply be a reflection on our lack of generosity (since they say there is already enough food for us all) and our lack of self-control (maybe we should try having sex less often?), in other words our lack of the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) in general that really is at the root of our need for more planets? Perhaps this is another example of our looking to technology to save us, when we should look to the Spirit of Jesus Chrst?

Just a thought.

On the other hand, if we had more than one planet, this would make the killer asteroid scenario much less potent, wouldn't it? Ha!

Great post...maybe your best yet! Kinda Battleship Galattica meets the Bible. lol. Seriously though, it's a mindblowing thought when you think about it...our problems stem from our unwillingness to follow the Scriptures. --Bethany

It's a worthwhile plan to consider. As it becomes easier and easier to build nukes -- and it will only get easier and easier -- it'll be good to have a backup plan.

As long as it happens like Firefly, with the cool music, plenty of brown coats, nifty spaceships, weekly shindigs, and whitty characters, you can count me in!
