The Scientist, The Christian And The New-Ager Essay, Research Paper Scientist (S) Christian (C) New Age-er (N) Openingstage: (everyone sits down, reading a book according to their way of living) S: Imagine that I would die now. How dark everything would be. C: What do you mean? S: Just lying there, becoming one with the soil. Giving birth to a new plant. Just walking straight into the darkness having fulfilled all my purposes with life. C: Well, first you’ll meet the Lord so that you are aware of your death, and while you’ll be in the soil I’ll be in Paradise. But there is still time to turn around and find salvation. N: Do you really think it will go that fast? Do you think you have learnt all about life during only one visit? C: Of course, you can’t learn all about

life. The only one who does that is God himself. S: Tough luck, because there is NO GOD! N: Some kind of God. C: There is the one and true God and without Him, what would be the meaning with life? S: So, what is the meaning of life, in your opinion?N: Seven stages.C: Seven stages? N: Explanation. S: What do you think? C: Once upon a time there was a Paradise. In this Paradise, two people lived, Adam and Eve. They could do anything in here, but to eat the forbidden fruit. One day, Satan, disguised as a snake, tricked Eve into taking a bite of this fruit. Ever since, man has lived in sin apart from God, and mankind’s goal is to reach back to this Paradise, and the only way to do that is through Jesus Christ. S: That is bullshit. There was no paradise. The universe was created in

the Big Bang. In the beginning, all energy, all mass and all light in the whole universe was concentrated in one spot. And then there was a great explosion when all energy, mass and light expanded and still today everything is traveling away from this spot. C: The earth wasn’t created in a big bang. God created earth and life in seven days or time periods. The word is the same on Hebraic.God created earth and heaven, light, the horizon, and the stars on the sky. He created all the plants, and animals. And finally he created man and woman in his image to rule over his creation. N: Intention -> Life on other planets. S: So YOU support my theory that there is life on other planets. N: Life on other planets. C: According to the Bible, God created us in his picture in

correlation with the creation of the earth. There is nothing in the Bible that point on life on other planets. On the other hand there is nothing that points in the other direction either. However, in Deuterium 4:19 it says that you shouldn’t praise the stars or what’s in them, and that’s exactly what New Age does. N: I bet -> old man. C: God doesn’t say how old mankind is. Some people who have studied this issue have counted with all the genealogical tables that exist in the Bible and then reached the conclusion that mankind is between 6000-10000 years old. However, this is just an interpretation and has no real ground in the Bible. S: 6000? Then how do you explain the Iceman that was found in the Alps. He is actually more than 6000 years old. C: I didn’t say

that the Bible said the man is 6000 years old. I said that some interpretations said so. These are just interpretations and should not be taken as truth.Scientist finds a five-crown on the floor. S: Oh, what a coincidence. N: No life is predetermined. C: So if a small child gets raped do you believe it is its own decision? N: Yes… C: I don’t believe that’s true. S: What do you think is true? C: Well, first I’d like to make a distinction. In the Old Testament, certain people’s lives were pre-determined in the sense that they were bound to do some special things for the Lord, they were chosen. Such as Moses, leading the people out of the desert, Joshua entering Kaanans land, all the prophets like Isaiah and Jeremiah just to mention some examples.The life lead by Jesus was
