    God may not be that entity with a Magic wand after all. It was as if a primitive man saw something that belong to the future, hence he could only explain as he did.
    Liquid nitrogen has the potential of crystallising a full human, as such, lot's wife might have been sprayed with a sister chemical. There are also instances when the israelites were rescued with fire and brine stone which may be closer to a Bomb.
    Every tool in our possession today, maybe a small Quota of the original nature of God. It is said that some scientists are Atheist. But when you look at the science involve in creation, one would wonder why those men chose otherwise. Today, scientists have not be able to name or characterise certain enzymes responsible for defined pathways in the metabolism of living systems.
    Initially, i doubted the Article. After a thorough Examination, it became clear that the truth may be close.
    Let us keep the Bias aside and examine this properly. The description may Just be of a Hovercraft-spaceship.

            Ah - so you are not a believer? You do not believe god created the earth?

            It is said.......
            some scientists are atheist.......
            the science involved in creation........
            wonder why those men chose otherwise.............

    i think fairly that you mention some remarkable points, james. 

    bias may always exist, but it doesn't have to be relevant. 

    mark's smarminess may always exist, but it also doesn't have to be relevant.

      I do not think the issue of lot's wife being vapourised by a spaceship is part of the content.

    As shocking as this might be to some, Mark and I agree on something this time! smile

    I remember watching a documentary discussing the same thing, and I immediately tuned out when the narrator said something to the effect of, "Based on a literal interpretation of Ezekiel 1: 4-28, the vision had to have been of some helicopter-type vehicle."

    If you take "faces" to mean sides, "wings" to mean rotors or propellers, "eyes" to mean landing lights or something like that, and "fire" to mean exhaust, you are not taking the passage literally, but interpreting it through a modern technological bias.

      Is it not better we go to the passage and see the actual description?

    i can only imagine the people who lived in places in remote parts of the world must have thought when they first saw an airplane like 100 years ago. then going back to the village and telling people what you saw!! they would perhaps put you in a hole or something, however they deal with crazy people.
    then having this happen again when they saw a jet or how about a rocket and then a space shuttle, they must still be freaking out.
    or how about when we have dreams that we cannot describe very well but we do are best and if they were vivid dreams we get it real close to exactly what we saw. same with having a vision, it's not easy to describe things that are strange by using ordinary objects everyone is familiar with, but we do our best because we really are trying to share the new things.
    dreams and visions are like a burden of sorts, trying to tell someone about them and they are looking at you like your whacked out. lol
    it's even hard to tell ones spouse about them, esp if the dream / vision is even hard for you to believe, but you cannot deny it.
    a dream is when you are asleep and a vision is when you are awake i believe.
    some dreams can be as vivid as actual visions though.

    just some thoughts smile
