Second Earth Found Nearby

Only 20 light years away, scientists have found an earth-like planet orbiting a star in the constellation Libra.

They believe the planet to be 1.5 times the size of Earth and to have a comfortably warm temperature. Because of its warmth, the planet could also have water, which is a basic ingredient for life. The planet could potentially have a habitable atmosphere.

More research is needed. But this is a major milestone in the search for life in the universe.

    Put two and two together. Look what’s going on in the world today. We have major recalls of human and animal foods. Have a massive increase of immorility and it’s starting to be acceptable. All races are fighting one another. The weather is strange these days. Global warming? What was going on when God distroyed the Earth the first time, and how did it effect the atmosphere. Before he distroyed the earth people was living hundreds of years. What I am thinking might sound crazy, but just think about it. How does the Bible days compare to todays days? I have a gut feeling the many planets (mainly Mars) we have was once earth but was distroyed of one reason or another. Could one of these new planet discoveries be the making of the new Earth for when the Earth as we now know it is disroyed ? Jesus is comming back and he’s going to take his faithful followers with Him to the New Earth. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

    Was just a thought and a crazy one. I want to start studying the solar system because it’s a wonder in life. Scientist are finding all kind of new thing’s in space. Noah was told not to look out of the ark while the flood was going on and God was wiping everything out because of immorality. I was thinking maybe it was a possibility that God was using the water to move Noah and his family to a newly created earth and thats how Mars came about. Don’t get me wrong because I wasn’t thinking about anything you had written or thought. I wrote my comment because it was a bizarre thought of mine and was curious what other people would say about it. My mind works in over kill sometimes, so I don’t want anyone to think I’m set on my idea. I don’t down anyone for how and what they believe religiously because it is their choice I should respect. The denomination or other people isn’t going to get us to heaven, but our belief in Jesus and being faithful to him will.
