I want to thank Stephanie for her well-thought-out, carefully expressed, and gracious reply to the earlier post. You answered that in both an accurate and kindly way.
I agree with Stephanie. Whenever I read the Old Testament prophets, who are warning of punishments to come for a rebellious nation turning from God, I do not see anything but a grave concern for people who are headed for a cliff to their own destruction. I never sense a vindictive spirit from God toward the disobedient. In fact, what I do see is a reluctance on God's part to have to go ahead with punishing the people He created. Whereas people may rejoice in the punishment of the wicked (I know that I certainly do at times), God is grieved over the need for punishment in the first place, hence the many, many warnings that precede the eventual punishments. I feel a sense of weariness and deep sorrow coming from the heart of God as I read these warnings. And God HImself has said that He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. (Ezekiel 33:11)
Going back to the comments by Saito Singh, I would like to respectfully disagree with his assertion that in C-14 analysis, "Recent carcasses would not provide a useful test." Really? Do I detect a hint of fear there? The usefulness of such a test would be in showing how accurate this test would be in arbitrarily determining the age of something whose age was already known. I think these tests are based on a number of assumptions, some of which could be wrong, as assumptions tend to be. Of course, I am not a scientist. Just a woman who cannot stop asking questions.
