No way, sorry to say.

We'll seek it out for energy sources and other disposable goods, and ultimately destroy it in like manner.

IMO .... It's part of God's will to frustrate the intellegent.

1 Corinthians 1:19
For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

1 Corinthians 3:19
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”

1 Corinthians 3:20
and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”

Perhaps God's eternal plan is that after we die we will all be teamed with a mate, like Adam and Eve, and go out to populate all those galaxies with Godly children for all eternity. Then the quadrillions of galaxies out there will not be going to waste. How would you like that? I would.

Yea...nor has there been any attempt since the moon landings for manned space excursions because of the inability for human body to exist for any length of time outside of gravity that isn't a "stones throw" from earth.

To think that any other form of life like animal\human can defy universal rules is ......... science fiction

Another planet like ours would not be defying any rules, our inability NOW to travel unimaginable distances has nothing to do with it being impossible.

Like I said, the point is that we have traveled in space which at one time was as inconceivable as your making all this out to be, and yet it happened. So the evidence is greater for it being possible than it is impossible. There was once a time where it was thought impossible for a vehicle to even go 60 mph.

So the assertion that it is impossible as you are implying has no true basis in any theoretical fact, only a belief based on opinion.

While millions starve to death, we spend billions trying to find the origins of the universe.

God will judge us on how much we tolerated, but I honestly don't know what we can do to stop certain pursuits of science.

If money was all it took to cure hunger in the world it would already have been solved.

True, it takes a heart for people as well.

yes.so all else is moot.

,an if not then would Jesus have to gone to other planets???was adam's sin only effecting this planet or was it effecting human species on other planets.

this is a serious question,we are but a tiny speck in our galaxy,our galaxy is but a tiny speck in the universe,and God only knows how many universes there are,our galaxy is 100,000 lightyears across,that means it would take us 100,000 years to go from one end to the other,that is if we were traveling at the speed of light,astronomers are starting to find earthlike planets in our galaxy,wether we can reach them is a different story,the nearest earthlike planet that they have found would take us 75,000 years to reach with our fastest interstellership,which is actually a lightweight space telescope.but who knows maybe they can reach us,ET phone homosapiens.i wonder what religious doctrines they'd be bringing with them.
I dunno,but while it seems huge to US, numbers mean little to God..look at the fact you have billions of cells in your body,yet you are only one human.

btw,I think God DID answer that q for us,with the verses:

The heavens declare the glory of God,and the firmament showeth His handywork.

iow-it's all about US! there's no one else there...I made all this to show you how great and mighty I am!
