Quick Question for the Judeo-Christian Believer Participants

I am curious to know if, based on your faith, you think it is possible for the human race to become utterly extinct. Does the free will we have been endowed with make even that awful fate possible, or do you think that, because of the particular interest God has in us (we being created in His image, for example) this is not something that would ever be allowed to happen? In a word, should we take steps to ensure that there will still be human life in 100 years, or (assuming–at least for the moment–that the apparent dangers to our continuance haven’t just been fabricated somehow) homo sapiens are safe in God’s hands.

I’m particularly interested in the Judeo-Christian response to this, but I hope those with less traditional theist views will also chime in. Thanks in advance for any responses. I have “Believer” in the title because I’m less interested in the responses of those who, e.g., consider themselves Jewish because their parents were Jewish and they enjoy matza ball soup. I’m interested in the responses of believers.

  1. fifthmonarchyman: You still don’t get it, As I have already said I’m not trying to convince you that God or Jesus is necessary for your choices to matter in the universe.

    I’m only pointing out the obvious fact that in your world your choices don’t matter in the universe in any ultimate sense.
    after all this time you still think I’m arguing for God’s existence.

    Your first two sentences here are lies, the rest are just mistakes. The ‘obvious’ biz is a question-beg, the stuff about me thinking you’re using ultimate to require God is confusion/inattention. I understand you mean it to entail the ends of the universe–as i’ve said fifty times and you’ve weaseled around about. But, as you and I both know, your view that your silly itches ultimately matter involves you getting a big smooch from Superman.

    All that’s hard here is to figure out whether in your last post you lied more or babbled confusions more. That’s hard because you do so much of both. It’s a puzzle within an enigma.

  2. Walto,

    I’m leaving tomorrow so instead of tussling more with you I will just say.

    Thanks for the memories.

    peace

    Oh, let him go. Pretty much anybody here could simulate his posts to a high degree of accuracy, anyhow.

    ETA: Correction. I couldn’t pump in the Bible quotations without using a random Bible quotation generator. But I could make stuff up that’d be pretty damned convincing I bet.
