dannyd - Reminds me of the classic Sci.fi movie "The Day the Earth stood still." And the poignant conversation between the peace loving alien and the young boy about war - where the alien states - we have no war and the boy responds - what a wonderful idea! (paraphrased from memory.<br /><br />Actually, the Bible uses the phrase "New Earth" at Isaiah 65:17-25; Revelation 21:1-5 and:<br /><br />(2 Peter 3:13) . . .But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.<br /><br />Isaiah 11:3-9 shows this is talking about this earth, but without war and the many other problems plaguing this earth and this time.<br /><br />My point being, why not consider living in harmony with nature (and our Creator) and look forward to living forever on a paradise earth.<br /><br />This earth, but made new!<br /><br />Sadly, at this time man in ruining the earth, which is also foretold at Revelation 11:18.
