You did.

It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe. THOMAS PAINE

I think the closest I may have come is when our children and us did group hugs. I just don't know, when they flung their heads back and laughed as we circled ... it was amazing.

that's when i knew "love" was a coded subroutine in a biological machine thats is a subset of reality.

If you have questioned the validity of this event about 2000 years ago then it would’ve made more sense but in this day and age?
I mean, it surely is possible to see all the kingdoms in the world in a moment. Spread a map on the table and take a look.

How about all the "kingdoms" in the universe(s)?

I think the estimate is 8 billions habitable Earths, it would be crazy to think we are the only people, and if we were the only people in this vast universe, it would sure make the creator look simple, what a waste.

Yes, it’s possible but obviously not possible at this stage of human history and human knowledge but who knows if we are actually going to be able to do so, let’s say 100,000 years in the future from now?

Your reaction is just like as if you were living 150 years ago and someone tells you that we will soon develop a way to fly over the Atlantic - you deny in disbelief but then the theory of an airplane is explained to you - and in response, you say, OK how about if we could fly to the moon?

I think the the kingdom Jesus was referring to is the one mentioned at Daniel 2:44.
So, possibly like a video / hologram image, Satan showed or projected for Jesus all of 'earth's kingdoms' along with their glory.

In Scripture, we are at present the only planet with intelligent life.
If there were a faithful Adam and Eve anywhere else then there would be No need to first settle the sin issue here.
The sin issue, the issue of sovereignty (who governs best) has to be settled here first before intelligent life elsewhere.
Of course, I am speaking about visible physical life, the invisible angelic spirit realm has life in the invisible heavens.
