New "Avatar" movie & James Cameron will go to the Oscars as nominees

London ---  Just left the 'World Premiere' of "Avatar," and while the standing ovation the film received at its conclusion is probably just the requisite politeness; I can report that this is another rare example where the quality of the movie does indeed exceed the hype and "Avatar" will most certainly be among the 10 'Best Picture' nominees for the Oscars; and James Cameron will also be a Best Director nominee. I think it is also possible that actress Zoe Saldana, who has the most challenging of roles in the film, may rack up an additional acting nomination as well.

       The movie may owe more than a few plot points to the story of Pocahontas, and there may be some grousing at a fairly heavy-handed treatment of corporate greed and our lack of American energy independence; but the key question, is Cameron able to deliver a movie that packs the entertainment value and emotional punch of 'Titanic.'  The clear answer is 'Yes.' The Oscars will not ignore this film.

Back in the time of the beginning, in the garden of Eden, before Adam and Eve sinned, when everything was perfect, what would have happened if Adam and Eve had not sinned?

Think of a perfect world. Think of a completely healthy world, a world wherein, once they got going, people could reproduce faster than rabbits. Think of a world with standing room only.

Now that astronomers have found what they think may be earth-size planets around stars that are similar to the sun, is it too much of a stretch to think that maybe God intended for human beings to expand throughout the galaxy and universe He created, for such a great length of time that it might seem like eternity - if only we had not sinned? Imagine having a Solar System of your own - or maybe a whole galaxy.

Think of it. Not only Earth, God's terrarium for man. But the stars and the whole Universe as well.

The question that comes to mind is, now that man has sinned, is this plan still active? Or has it changed?

Personally, I don't think the plan is the same. Jesus said, "Heaven and Earth will pass away, but my Word will not pass away." John, in the Revelation says, "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea."

Through Jesus, the plan has now become one that is far better... for all those who truly accept God. A new heaven and new earth, one that will never have sin or imperfection.
