When I was very young, I used to get upset thinking about spending an eternity in Heaven. It's one thing to just say "I'll be there forever", but to think literally I will be there for a hundred billion years, and there will still be an endless number of a hundred billion years after that. It made me so upset I'd get sick.

And I know that it will be wonderful and perfect and God know what we need to be happy, so I don't worry, but I also have sort of realized for myself that time is a bizarre, worldly limitation. If it exists in the afterlife, I think it's incredibly different.

I think a lot of the debate here is kind of skewed because we're all operating on our limited understandings of having always lived in a world where time is this strict linear line.

Yeah, if grandma had a child at 15, then her child had a child at 15, the OP would be 16. Biologically possible, but highly unlikely. But still probably more likely than the other stuff in the post.

When people did good in the Bible, God's greatest blessings were usually aimed at their posterity.

"I will pour my Spirit upon your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants."

"Your children will be blessed, as well as your crops; your herds will be blessed with calves and your flocks with lambs."

So if we reap the rewards of our ancestors' goodness, it seems logical that we would suffer the consequences of their evil as well. We can certainly see that this is the way things tend to operate in the natural world.

I think one of the most important things for us to appreciate about sin, is that it never stays neatly in the box we put it in. A lot of times, we might choose to do something we know is bad, saying that we're willing to accept the consequences, and that might be well and good, but the fact is that our sins will often be paid for most by those who love us. Would we pursue things we know to be wrong if we thought that our children would have to pay the price?

re: TIL Gardiner’s Island, off the coast of Long Island, was the first English settlement in present-day New York state and has remained in the family since 1639.

The post points out that the first English land Grant in New York is still in the same family's hands. The commenter dismisses the significance of that based on the fact that there were already white people in Manhattan. I pointed out that those folks were Dutch not English.

A hot spring hotel in Hayakawa, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan was founded in 705 AD and has been continuously operated by 52 generations of the same family for over 1,300 years.

In America, Gardiner’s Island is still owned by the descendants of Lion Gardiner, who received a grant in 1639 (less than 2 decades after the Mayflower Pilgrims arrived) from Charles I for the first colonial English settlement in present-day New York state.

Oh wow! That's a blast from the past. I remember once a kid calling me out in 7th grade for lying about my dad dying in the bombing. He told me he had that book and would look when he got home. I told him to go for it. Especially perfect since Dad's caption was "Patrick and Jessica's Dad". Only would have been better if it had said "Patrick and Jessica's Dad, Alex you dumb shit."

He was really embarrassed about it the next day though. No hard feelings.

Thanks! Probably largely my fault for the choice of sub, but I couldn't think of any place else more appropriate…
