Public Talk last Sunday the speaker reasoned that man was made to live forever because of how the body renews and heals itself along with pointing out how complex and grand our bodies are made. Here is the outline
MAN WAS MADE TO LIVE FOREVER (9 min.)
Scientists are uncertain why man dies (g88 10/8 24; g90 4/22 4)
Some humans live exceptionally long (g86 8/8 31)
Bible shows that man's original life-span was unlimited (Ge 2:16, 17; g77 2/22 27, 28; g90 4/22 7-8)
Evidence of brain's capacity and functions and amazing process of cell renewal for entire body indicate man was designed to last forever (tp 101-2; g88 8/8 16-20)
Everlasting life would mean restoration to man's original condition of perfection
We conclude, then, that we were evidently designed to live forever, but does that sound desirable to you?
I was thinking during this section...don't animals have cell renewal processes and brains that continue to learn throughout life? Animals certainly don't have the hope of everlasting life, so how can this process be used as a proof? I couldn't connect the fact that the body renews itself with the conclusion this means we are meant to live forever.
Also, later in the talk the speaker mentioned we don't use 10% of our brains, rather only .01%. He was quoting someone. The 10% idea has been proven false, rather I believe 100% of the brain is used, correct?
Sorry for the grammer...posting this quickly.
