Re your post 24. Excellent post. I’ve been watching the videos and am already on my 5th video. So far, all of the arguments have been in agreement with the fundamentals of the physical sciences, and I plan on eventually purchasing the video. Thanks again.

Yes the earth may be here.

My point is that what we don’t know may indicate that we are just spinning our wheels in God’s Sandbox.

Well, stepping out of the arena of the science involved (which is very limited anyway) and into what God has told us in the Bible, I know that we’re going to be alive and well, on this earth, for at least 1,007 more years, at the very minimum, with a whole lot of people around on this earth.

That’s why I’m not too concerned about our welfare on earth (as far as human beings and civilization is concerned) — although I’m interested in what may be discovered about this phenomenon (the sunspot magnetic fields).

“..but the earth continues “being here” nonetheless, regardless of how much we know or don’t know... :-)”

Very true - but civilization may not be. A real “ice age” (not some puny Maunder Minimum) would put a real crimp in our style. Crops (and eating) primarily.

The last time we had an “interglatial warm period” it lasted about 15,000 years IIRC (120,000 years ago).

We are now about 13,000 years (IIRC) into “our” warm period. Interesting how civilizations are just about the same age. (We like it warm!)

I imagine that there will be mass migrations to the southern latitudes with no doubt lots of territorial fighting. Perhaps a market for large domes and self-sufficient communities in the middle latitudes.

As I said in Post #54, I know we’re going to be here as human beings and with civilization intact for — at least — another 1,007 years (minimum).

Then I also know that at the end of that period of 1,007 years, some real dramatic changes occur and the world and the universe is made new again, after the Great White Throne Judgement (as stated in Revelation 20). After that, we’ve got no problems from then on...

So, no matter how much science or scientists know or don’t know... we’ve got a long ways to go yet... :-)

Agreed - it’s in God’s hands.

Not to say that we shouldn’t be prepared for things that we think might happen. But, to think that we can CHANGE the climate is, I think, an outcome of the Humanist “religion” or whatever it is called.

I just love God’s Sense of Humor.

There must be some joy at watching us scramble in irrational fear.

The worship of the Earth though will little off set the joy with a little wrath.

You know, the little wrath could be an ice age.
