He demos this stunning tour and explains how it's being shared with facilities around the world.
I'm often blown away that folks would ever limit these (and other) topics to such poor interpretations of the book of Genesis (or other areas of the Bible). Perhaps it is my own journey from a Religion/ Phycology major to Physics which has always opened my mind and steered me away from any "young earth" notion of a 6,000+/- year old planet.
I can't imagine a God or a place in our heavens which would prove less wondrous or amazing than the imagination of a Leonardo Da Vinci or the creative direction of a Steven Spielberg. And to this end I don't feel we should ever find ourselves comforted in defending highly limited, human perspectives of life, love, generosity and purpose.
Humans have far to much potential to be guilty of "pigeon holing" God's purpose, desires or methods. Be inspired to live by faith and inspirations rather than limited interpretations... Life isn't about conjuring up a "comfort zone" and then preaching other's should join you by sitting squarely within it.
