  1. I think it is being stored in a secure location somewhere and probably won't re-emerge until certain prophesied events mentioned in the Bible take place.
  2. God may have been disappointed in humans or humans & animals. The humans of the time might have been doing sinful things with animals that were around or somehow exposed them to their sinful acts. Since the serpent from the Garden of Eden was intelligent enough to communicate with Eve and talked her into disobeying God by eating the forbidden fruit it wouldn't surprise me if some of the animals were committing sinful acts on their own. In any case, God spared Noah along with his family and two of each animal so they were all given another chance to populate the Earth. As you know, Adam and Eve were the first two humans on Earth. When they ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge, the same tree God told them not to eat from, it gave them knowledge of good and evil. The knowledge of this fruit was passed down to their offspring and the rest of the human race. A person can choose to focus on good or evil even though the presence of both will remain in them during their life on Earth.
  3. Praying to God for guidance, reading the Bible, using our conscience wisely, and running the idea by fellow Christians. Taking medicine is fine. There are good ways to use genetic modification such as creating a cure for an otherwise incurable disease but it shouldn't be used in a selfish way or in an effort to play god.
  4. Yoga was born in mysticism. Therefore, it should be avoided. 8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. -Colossians 2:8
  5. It's just a scientific milestone. We've spotted black holes before but I think this is the first time the event horizon, which is usually nigh invisible or surrounded by gases it is pulling in, has been clearly captured in a photo. (Trivia: The event horizon is the area around a black hole with gravity that's strong enough to pull in light. This creates a black sphere around the star remnant which makes it look like a black hole in space.)
  6. I get the feeling this was caused by a tourist or construction worker smoking in an area they shouldn’t then carelessly discarding the lit cigar on or stamping it into part of the old wooden structure before leaving the area.
  7. This is a fascinating chart. We definitely seem to be around the center of a large section of the known universe.
  8. At least you gained experience from this. God will provide another opportunity for you in the future.
  9. I have yet to find a case of someone who naturally loves a member of the same sex. Usually it's a flawed way to cope with sexual abuse or the person is confused by the growing wave of media & people supporting it.
  10. 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” -Genesis 3:22 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. -John 3:16 15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. -1 John 2:15-16

    I will pray for you. Make the most of what you have and stay positive. Here are some tips that might be useful. -Public drinking fountains are a good source of free water which can be stored in a plastic bottle for future use. -On top of being a good place to gather information, libraries often have public computers. They are also a good place to get out of the sun on hot days and should have a phone that can be used upon request. -Public bathrooms provide free paper towels, toilet tissue, and soap. You can use these to wash yourself if necessary. -Public fountains often have coins in them. However, getting them can be risky if there are rules against doing so and/or the place is being monitored so exercise caution. Wash your hands and arms off thoroughly in a nearby bathroom if you do reach in to get any. -Consider getting a backpack since they are good for carrying things. -If you know of a trustworthy church in the area consider stopping by and asking them for assistance. Some churches have free meals on certain days. -News paper or any paper you have available can be balled up and put inside your jacket to help you stay warm. -Some gyms have towels and showers for their members to use. Consider getting a free trial membership to gain access to them for a short time or finding a decent gym that has these but doesn't require a membership. -Some public pools also have showering areas.
  12. Moving on was the right thing to do since he was toying with your heart. God can help you let go but you have to commit to letting go too. Cutting off communication with your ex is imperative, if you haven't already, so he can't play mind games anymore. Keep praying for God's help, believe that you can let go of this person, and focus on other things in your life such as work or fun activities to keep yourself busy.
  13. This particular black hole is located in the center of a galaxy called Messier 87 which is around 55 million light-years from Earth. It's not a threat to us.
  14. Was there a tall, metallic cross at the top of the church?
  15. 27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[e] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. -Matthew 5:27-28 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. -1 John 2:16-17 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. -Galatians 5:19-21 20 My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. 21 Bind them always on your heart; fasten them around your neck. 22 When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. 23 For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way to life, 24 keeping you from your neighbor’s wife, from the smooth talk of a wayward woman. 25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes. 26 For a prostitute can be had for a loaf of bread, but another man’s wife preys on your very life. 27 Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? 28 Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? 29 So is he who sleeps with another man’s wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished. 30 People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. 31 Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house. 32 But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself. 33 Blows and disgrace are his lot, and his shame will never be wiped away. 34 For jealousy arouses a husband’s fury, and he will show no mercy when he takes revenge. 35 He will not accept any compensation; he will refuse a bribe, however great it is. -Proverbs 6:20-35
