G-d already tells us what the destiny of this world is. We won’t need to look for other planets. It simply isn’t a part of G-ds plan that we live on other planets.
So I guess it's OK to visit them.
All that depends on whether this God exists/ once existed or not.
Some of them are really not much different than home. No reason to be afraid.
Here's one of my favorites images.
Clouds above the rim of "Endurance Crater" in this image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. These clouds occur in a region of strong vertical shear. The cloud particles (ice in this martian case) fall out, and get dragged along away from the location where they originally condensed, forming characteristic streamers. Opportunity took this picture with its navigation camera during the rover's 269th martian day (Oct. 26, 2004). (NASA/JPL)
On May 19th, 2005, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit captured this stunning view as the Sun sank below the rim of Gusev crater on Mars. This Panoramic Camera mosaic was taken around 6:07 in the evening of the rover's 489th martian day, or sol. Spirit was commanded to stay awake briefly after sending that sol's data to the Mars Odyssey orbiter just before sunset. The image is a false color composite, showing the sky similar to what a human would see, but with the colors slightly exaggerated. (NASA/JPL/Texas A&M/Cornell)
“With God, all things are possible.”
I thought God made us smart enuf to get off this rock and carry the Word to all places and to all men.
Sorry fella, that’s just painfully silly.
So why would God put possibly quintillions of planets out there?
I believe it is God’s plan that we travel to other worlds, and - as well as study his amazing creation - we will find the “sheep of the other sheepfolds.”
The Bible is not an Operator's Guide to the Universe. It simply tells enough to return to God through Christ.
Does the Bible indicate why so many stars were created? Does the Bible actualy say, "All of those stars do not have habitable planets?". No, it does nothing of the sort. You are reading into the Bible what is not there.
Well that’s a defeatist attitude.
