Oh, Science has stories to tell
And Religion can spin them as well
But the two have combined
For a mind-blowing find–
Yes, they’ve finally located Hell!
Rev. Dr. Michael T Santini’s work as an Aerospace Engineer and Pastor has given him unique authority to access both sides of the religion vs. science debate. In “Venus: Don’t Go There: What Science and Religion Reveal about Life after Death,” Santini calls on unambiguous evidence that points toward Venus as a prime candidate for hell (the lake of fire); urging all readers to accept the provision made by Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. One critic (BlueInk Review) has already hailed the volume as “strongly convincing.”
Another critic (Digital Cuttlefish) hails it as “complete bullshit”.
Apparently, the author’s scientific training made him wonder about all those pesky metaphors in the bible. Mightn’t they actually be literally true?
“After a long aerospace engineering career that saw me working on many satellites for government space programs, I started attending seminary at night and eventually obtained a Doctor of Ministry degree. At this point, my experience made it strikingly clear that science and religion were at unnecessary odds,” explains Santini. “I began to investigate that the traditionally-abstract heaven, Hades, and hell could, in fact, exist in our space-time continuum. Fusing the laws of physics with scripture, Venus began to emerge as the prime candidate for where unsaved people go after the Day of Judgment.”
Actually, my uncle is also an engineer, and also spends a great deal of effort trying to reconcile the bible with the world as science observes it. I had a conversation with him once about the role of the two hemispheres of the brain, and he was convinced that the time lag in communication across the corpus callosum was the basis for the biblical injunction to “let not your left hand know what your right hand is doing”.
Engineers love design, and designers. Perhaps especially intelligent ones.
But I know he’s wrong–the Weekly World News told me that there are recordings of screams in hell from a really deep well here on Earth (no, really!), and I swear I heard that story on Art Bell as well.
