Why Do People Look Skywards When Talking About God? by Jenwitemi(m): 7:52pm On Mar 21, 2012
There is a theory gaining momentum right now called, "The Saturnian Polar Configuration". It states that the solar system we have at the moment was different from what it once was. There was a time in the ancient past when the planet "SATURN" was our sun. And saturn was standing motionless above the planet earth. A lot of ancient mythologies passed down to us state this. Here is a website that tries to elucidate more on this theory, http://saturndeathcult.com/

Could planet Saturn be the reason why humanity look upwards when it talks about God?

Why the angry look? I am not presenting this as fact. It is only a theory. Do you have a theory of your own on why people look skywards when they talk about God or heaven? I bet you don't. It is all good.

People look up when talking about GOD cos
1. God is our heavenly father, and heaven is skywards.
2. God is above every other god
3. Just imagine someone talking about GOD and pointing downwards or sideways.
4. Just imagine rapture taking place and believers start going down into the earth.

So, you say that heaven has a specific physical location?

That could hardly be the reason why people look upwards.

2. God is above every other god

Why point anywhere at all? Does that mean that God has a specific physical location?

I don't believe in rapture so no comment on that one.

You dont believe in rapture,which means you dont believe in the coming of christ.And you dont believe in God.(i didn't put question mark cos it's not a question,but a fact).
Well,i want to know the motive behind your question.
Is it that you don't believe God is skywards? Or
people should stop looking upwards when addressing God since they dont know his real direction?
Re: Why Do People Look Skywards When Talking About God? by Jenwitemi(m): 1:32pm On Mar 22, 2012
That, i am afraid, is not the thrust of this topic. Whether i believe what you believe and in the way you believe is irrelevant in this thread. Stick to the issue at hand, please.

This can hardly be the case. Humans would not have survived such a cataclysmic event. The gravitational swing involved would have precipitated such magnificent upheavals in the Earth's crust with numerous volcanic eruptions enough to blanket the entire atmosphere making it deadly to all oxygen breathing lifeforms.

Saturn is not even as big as Jupiter so I wonder how it could have acquired the gravitational pull to encircle the planets. Also a Sun is powered by hydrogen in gaseous form and a lot of plasma, Saturn has none of these characteristics so how was it a Sun?

The skies have always fascinated man with its myriads of stars, comets, asteroids, planets and other heavenly bodies and events. Our ancient forebears had no electric lights or big city lights to disturb their view of the heavens so it was easy to be entranced by the beauty of it. Marry that with the fact that the fathers of the Faith had encounters with Beings who pointed out the heavens as their home and you have got your answer.

there is the innate belief that God is in the heavens so everyobe just naturally looks up to Him.

Ayat al Kursiy(2:255) confirms

. .His throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth

***Unbelievable***

How do you know all this? Do you have proof that "God" lives skywards?

They also close their eyes and bow their heads looking downwards where 'Satan' is supposed to reside too! Depends on what 'operations' they plan to carry out that very night! Or day!

as muslims,we raise our hands upwards when supplicating to show how low we are and how high God is.it doesn't mean God has a physical throne sitting or place somewhere upwards.God is present everywhere with His knowledge.

God's throne is in the north beyond the sun far away in space. Christ looked ur to pray at the tomb of lazarus. Looking ur is also a way of concentration in prayer.
