"He also has the prerogative of exponentially elevating the countries of the United States and Israel with scientific achievements well beyond any achieved at any period in time, as long as they elevate Him above all the falsities and corruptness of the wood and stone and human gods of these other nations. As He allows the rain to fall on the godly along with the wicked, so shall He allow the judgements to fall on a nation because of the wicked. All cultures are not equal, nor do they move the people forward.

The rest of your comment is actually verifying what i am supporting, but the most dangerous part is this one. First of all, the most advanced country in the 40's was Germany by far, was that the will of God as well? When the allies won the Axis, Thank God, they kept all its scientists and some went to the US and others to the Soviet Union, Israel didn't exist at the moment, and that is why US and Soviet Union sent people to space, other wise they would have been quite late. But science is a different thing than culture, and it doesn't mean that if someone has reached a high scientific level it has also reached a high cultural level. Take the Vikings for example, they were able to travel everywhere in the world they had the most advanced ships and armaments and they just brought distraction. Of course, the scientific superiority of the United States is not because of any God, but because US has the Grants to bring over scientists from all around the world, scientists who believe in any possible religion and most of them actually, are atheists. I am not going to convince you for that because i can not, i am sure i will receive an answer like, "it was His will" that they came to America" and that is alright, i respect your belief. But!,

The worst part of what you write is that all cultures are not equal, that is the excuse of the Holocaust, as simple as that, all cultures and all people are not the same for sure, and thank God for that, but they are all equal and have the right to exist, this is what my God believes.
