    Does god want us to travel space, discover its secrets and maybe even life?

    Or would this be some kind of blasphemy(depending which religion you belong to, I guess)?

    This is where the quest lies.

    The Kingdom of Heaven is within, certainly, but it is also regarded as the stars, as though the universal being represents the "universe".

    I am not being unfair in saying that. The only story that could suggest God wants us to explore the stars is that of Jesus.........a Kingdom of Heaven, a mother church, a crown of 12 stars halo, the Kingdom being within. Putting all those pictures together of that puzzle would inspire one to think God wants us to take the step to the stars.

    But, it's the "eye of the needle"...........it's difficult............it's not for camels..........you have to be quick of mind.

    For any normal earth bound entity without the ability to travel to the stars, the quest for the stars would only naturally come as an after-life experience. Yet with the ability, that need for it to be an after-life experience may no longer be necessary.

    I have heard that the stars could be an apparition, like a ghost, a place we go to when we have passed on. Yet, if science maintais they are real, surely without making a mockery of this world we need to consider the implications of our scientific beliefs.

    Dont you think that his main guys exploring deeper and deeper, and further and further back in time of his universe, would make him very uneasy?

    Considering the things he does forbid his chosen ones from doing, peering into the universe would seem the greater taboo.

    maybe he's like the final boss in some game, where he sits on his throne waiting, throwing puzzles and traps in our way until we finally reach god-like powers and can challenge him.

    Social models of God have existed in the past, a "one God".

    Zeus for instance, and his associated entourage of Gods, looking over what would have been a developing if not limited people.

    If God were to exist in the human form, I would think that God would ultimately mirror everything around it.........and thus maybe extend the right of "Godliness" to the people around him..........maybe bestoying a sovereign title.

    We have models to guide us we have learnt through faith, and yes we question other possibilities when we leave those models of faith behind..........paranoid beliefs on God's potential agenda.

    Okay, I'm a little slow this morning, so you'll have to help me out here. Are you seriously proposing that stars might not be real?

    No.

    I am suggesting that a certain faith has encouraged us, indirectly, to consider that our afterlife is spent in a "Kingdom of heaven" which could be interpreted as the stars.

    Of course ghosts are an apparition, classically.......insubstantial, and so possibly faith is suggesting so too is that Kingdom of heaven, namely an apparition.........insubstantial.

    It's a suggestion by faith.

    As a FACT, I don't know.

    Science is different.

    I am only suggesting that "faith" could be suggesting that the stars are as insubstantial as the afterlife.............as a ghost.

    Still, that does not rule them as being real, but that they have a ghostly quality.

    Maybe this is what mankind is desitned to, one day we will be and will have to choose to bow to Him or fight Him. Personally false Gods are the ones that can be beaten, but the one true God can't nd we should'nt.
