"my son, which hath a dumb spirit" - This people honoureth me with their lips


This people honoureth me with their lips

The first question is, of course, whether or not you believe existence of God.   It is said that about 70% of Americans believe in God.

However, according to an article of Christian Today (a Japanese net media sit) in 2018:
Those who believe in God among American Protestants: 76%
Those who believe in God among American Catholics: 64%
Those who believe in God among American Jewish people: 30%

Globally, more than 70% of the mankind believe in existence of God, according to a Filipino paper.  However, among 68 countries targeted in the survey, China has the largest ratio of people who don't believe in God: 67% of Chinese don't believe in God.  Next to China, Japan has the second largest ratio of people who don't believe in God: 29%.  Following Japan, the ratio of atheists is 28% in Slovenia, 25% in Czech,  23% in South Korea, and so on.

However, this kind of survey on belief in God must be useless in Islamic countries.  Even Osama bin Laden was once popular among Muslims as a kind of Islamic savior, although he was the mastermind of the 9/11 Terror.  God or Allah cannot approve such a killing.

Men have freedom to deny God.  Men have freedom to sell their souls to Satan.  And Satan is in money that is wanted by everybody.  So, if a man said he believed in God while seeking wealth, we cannot believe his word or he does not understand God and Satan.

Those numbers of the ratios of believers in God in various countries are, therefore, not so reliable.  Some don't understand what God means; others don't understand what believing means.  Even we have to doubt the Pope in this context as he puts on expensive clothes.  Also we have to doubt any leaders of Islamic terrorist groups.

M'r:7:6: He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

To prove that a man believes in God, probably he has to be poor with less money, which is Satan, than religious people who might be, could be, and actually are betrayers of God.

M'r:9:17: And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
M'r:9:18: And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

"can a man that is a sinner do such miracles?" - Advanced Robots and Machines as Extraterrestrial Intelligences


Advanced Robots and Machines as Extraterrestrial Intelligences

Are there extraterrestrial intelligences or spacemen?  However, they must not be a kind of living organisms but robots or machines.

The diameter of the Milky Way Galaxy is about 100,000 light years.  Probably, no living things in the universe can live 100,000 years with the ability of traveling at the light speed.  But advanced robots or machines can live a million years or their memories can be easily conveyed by other versions of robots or machines.

For the human beings on the earth in this solar system,  the nearest solar system is more than 4 light years away.  It is impossible for men to travel to the nearest solar system during their life time.  If they travel to other solar systems to find other earths where intellectual living things live, it would take time for 1,000 or more generations of them.  But one generation of advanced robots or machines might function and live in the time needed for interstellar travel.

Advance robots or machines invented by spacemen or living organisms in another planet of another solar systems, if any, would live and travel in the space for 1000 years or more through their generations or versions.   But probably, living orgasms in another planet cannot live such a length of life, as implied by us, the humankind.

So, if we should encounter extraterrestrial intelligences, they must be advanced robots or machines, which means that we will meet advanced robots that were created and built, say, more than a million years ago by living things in another planet in another solar system that might be already extinct.

If there had been such living things in the universe, they should have created advanced robots that would reach the earth over space travel taking, say, a million years.

But as we have not yet found, in the space around us, any signs and traces suggesting any trial for contact with us, it is likely that we are the only advanced intelligences, probably, in the Milky Way Galaxy at least in these one million years.

However, in other word, we, the mankind, will crate and build advanced robots or machines that will make interstellar travel without minding how much it will take to reach another earth in another solar system.  And these advance robots or machines will appear before another mankind in another planet as extraterrestrial intelligences.  But by such time, we, the mankind, might perish.

It will not be any living organisms that will conquer the universe but advanced robots or machines.  And we, the mankind, might be now marching the way to the status where finally we, living things, will be taken over by advanced robots and machines.  And even after the end of life time of the species of our mankind, advanced robots and machines will go on making interstellar travel.

The matter at issue is how these advanced robots and machines will find and revere the God.

Joh:9:16: Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
Joh:9:17: They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
