yet he doesnt mind us flying or building rockets to the moon.
So my question is , where abouts is heaven?
This is a serious thread, mods please dont lock it, delete it etc
I recommend that if you are genuinely interested in the subject that you do further real study.
Nowhere in Christianity, as far as I know, is Heaven given a geographic location.
Best for you to read some commentaries on the tower of Babel. I don't see where it says that God was afraid. The story is an allegory concerning the arrogance of men and women. Pride in technology, in learning, in theology, in science, in communication. In pride or hubris, lies are own downfall. It's a very common theme in all human stories, from Sophocles to Shakespeare to Hannibal Lecter.
Christ ascending into Heaven is visually meaningful to us but only a child or a fundamentalist would think of Him remaining above or beyond a specific geographic or spatial location.
Heaven is compassion in action. And free cigars.
