The use of
computers continues to astound me. Through computer imaging
researchers are now able to watch what goes on in the mind and
brain while people think, and show how people look as they
age,---(I am not sure this is a blessing). In many areas
that are now producing simulators, ---producing real life
operations without the risk of actual physical danger.
Our family jokes
about how my father refused to allow my brother to swimming,
stating that "he had no business getting into the water until he
learned how to swim." Perhaps my father was ahead of his

Pilots have long
been trained to fly various aircraft by the use of simulators.
Imagine the advantages of learning to fly without being in the

before getting into the shuttle to reach outer space. Our
local newspaper reported that our police will be trained to drive
in high speed chases using simulators.
Students at the
vocational school where I interpret will be learning welding by
the use of a simulator. My little four-year-old grandson
enjoyed a daring simulated motorcycle ride with his dad without
mom having a heart attack.
The use of

areas that training in a simulator could save heartaches, pain,
and destroyed lives.
Should a person
tempted to drink or try drugs get into a simulator and experience
the devastation that such real life action brings, they might
If a husband and
wife considering divorce get into a simulator and see the pain,
anger, financial and emotional ruin they will reap they might

A marriage partner
tempted by an illicit relationship could try a simulator and feel
the pain, anguish, and heartache put on others. The tryst
might not taste so sweet.
A teenager should
have a simulator experience to see how it feels to have STD, an
unwanted baby, or even HIV or AIDS, and reconsider that tempting
On the other hand,
if someone could get into a simulator and experience the total
joy, sweet peace, and the happiness of life as God designed it to
be before Satan twisted and perverted it, they would, like the
astronauts, get in, take off, and enjoy one of the most
delightfully, indescribable experiences imagineable.
