    Planet Earth - Tailor Made to Support Life....

    1. Atmosphere - Humidity, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and ozone
    2. Magnetic Field - To protect from solar blasts
    3. Size - Just the right amount of gravity
    4. Water - I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.- Deuteronomy 8
    5. Soil - For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey; A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lordthy God for the good land which he hath given thee.- Deuteronomy 8
    6. Anatomy - Ears, eyes, hands, feet, skin, kidneys, liver, nose, reproductive organs, putting the number of cells in a human body to around 30 trillion.
    7. Variety of creatures

    If E = mc2 then we can divide and conclude that...

    Mass (m) = Energy (E/c2) And there are three varieties...

    Natural E/c2 - All mass is basically cooled plasma, the sun is the visible form of E/c2
    Mental E/c2 - Our thinking can produce creativeness, light, and good things
    Spiritual E/c2 - E (motivation, warmth, love) / c2 (faith, hope, charity, joy)

    I believe the big bang occurred when God uttered these words...

    And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. - Genesis 1:3

    The E/c2 cooled back to mass as it expanded out from a point of origin. Such mass froze into elements as the Father willed it. It took intelligent design and spiritual motive for such an event to have taken place. I believe the elements will soon disassociate back into E/c2 and God will take all that energy and do something else with it.

    But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness? - 2 Peter 3:10-11

    My viewpoint of creationism...

    1. A large chunk of space rock floating there in space
    2. M=E/c2 with the let there be light quote
    3. E/c2 back into mass and the solar system comes into existence
    4. I believe Adam was created around 4000 BC
    5. Isaac Newton predicted Christ’s return in 2060 AD
    6. Another 1000 years called the millennial
    7 The mass returns to plasma where God will do something else with it

    I believe Albert Einstein himself was a creationist as he once said... “Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.” -Albert Einstein

    " And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
    2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,
    Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
    4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new." ( Revelation 21:1-5 ).

    The energy/matter equivalent is interesting.

    You know, when energy (gamma rays) come into close proximity to the nucleus of an atom that energy can be converted into matter....and when that mass comes into contact with matter of the opposite charge it is converted back into energy. (Pair-production)

    There are at least two interpertations of the 6 literal days. beginning with what verses comprising the first day? A common view being Genesis 1:1-5 being the first day. Then the view I personally hold, Genesis 1:3-5 being the first day. When our Sun became a star. On the fourth day the Sun and Moon along with the stars, the points of light, became visable as distinct lights. The 6 literal days being a miraculous intervention as God's unique acts of creation to make man and a place for man.

    Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him? - Isaiah 40:13

    Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.. - Genesis 3:19

    I often think on how I could council God to turn the dust (m) to energy (E/c2) And then reform the dust into something creative. Especially seeing it is estimated that there are 750 trillion cells in the human body.

    All this may sound impressive, and convincing to someone with limited science learning, but the argument you may encounter will be something like life developed on earth according to the earth's capability to support it. Not that life is only possible on earth or on a planet that could be called its twin.
