Is there a way that we can use science as an instrument to breach the Kingdom of Heaven? From there we can become one with The Creator and discover the truth behind eternity!

A more practical question to consider is: 'why' would scientific endeavors invest time into something that more than likely won't yield utility?

They tried with the Tower of Babel and you know what happened. Presumably that particular edifice must have been taller than any current skyscraper because God isn't objecting to man attempting to breach heaven now. He doesn't seem to care about all kinds of rockets flitting around through his heavenly realm either. Lol.

Currently, there is no scientific evidence that such a Kingdom of Heaven exists, so it would be a waste of time to try to go there. Trying to mount an expedition to Heaven would be equivalent to trying to mount an expedition to Narnia.

Unlikely as an afterlife and deity probably don't exist!

Lol they do it all the time. Exploration vs exploitation. Billions have been spent on equiptment testing for things that might not bear fruit.

No one is building skyscrapers to get to heaven. Maybe God was punishing the intent and not the structure.

"Science used to breech the Kingdom of Heaven" is an oxymoron.

Like asking, "Can we use Science to climb Mount Olympus?" Or "Can we use Science to figure out the physics to lift Thor's Hammer?"

Exercises in futility.

But the best Theological "blend" I think, for somebody who wants to believe in God and heaven but also appreciates Science, and does not want to have his mind so wide open that his brains fall out, is to adhere to the hypothesis of "Theistic Evolution."

Tell that to the millionaires living in penthouses on the top. They think they are in heaven. Lol.

I think the truth to eternity is a concept almost incommunicable from within the confines of time woven throughout the yarns of space. A mortal's perspective thinks in terms of measurement, thinks eternity is time lasting forever and ever, never considers eternity to be something that is nothing. Time is incompatible with eternity. Eternity reflects better the length of a grizzly lifetime with bedraggled years growing heavy as time passes on. But crowed the heavy weight of that very lifespan into an eternity, then release it, and suddenly its soggy years become feather light as no time seems to have past. Forty years measured becomes the weight of less than a nanosecond. Time, its years weigh apparent then to equivalent pounds of lead. Like I said, it's hard to describe. I'm sure somebody has already figured a way to get there, but if you can get there, wouldn't that mean you're already there now?
