Let’s Get This Party Started

Most of my posts are about religion and atheism. Part of my atheism is believing in my fellow human apes and what we together can and have accomplished. There are no gods needed to see how through tireless effort we can accomplish mind boggling feats of engineering and human compassion. One of the great representations of this is the results of science. Thousands upon thousands of scientists are working tirelessly to find even trivial bits of new information that lead us to better understanding and better living. We owe them. All of them.

Currently I can think of no person who is a more charismatic speaker about science and space than Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. I find him inspiring in ways that I have trouble writing about. I think that perhaps if you find him uninspiring you might have something wrong with you. The collection of human apes on this planet need to get over the fear and get on with going where we are destined to go. Star Trek has laid out the guidelines, the program as it were. We need to be exploring outer planets for life, mining space bodies for fuel, and looking for Earth v2.0. We need to GET THIS PARTY STARTED. I’m not one to tell you who to vote for but you might want to rethink your voting plans after you listen to what The Neil has to say.

Seriously, send that video link to your senators and congressmen. Make a statement that means something for the future of human apes. If we do not speak up now we may never get another chance and I weep for our species.

All we need do is shut down the TSA and Homeland Security. Give 10-15% of that money to the FBI and the rest to NASA. That’s it. That is all that is necessary to get this party started. Do it. Write your representatives. Urge them to spend  your money wisely. If you are not from the USA, write to the President of the United States directly. It takes a few moments but I think it is worth it. Our species is worth it. You are worth it. Stop spending on fear and start spending on exploration.

Thank you

  1. God does have life on other planets, but God has made the distances between us so great that we will never be able to see or realize their existence before Earth’s time runs out. In other words, we have been quarantined from other worlds because of our fallen sinful state.

    We are currently living on a planet that is caught in the middle of a great war between God and Satan and the whole universe is watching this center stage play unfold to see what the outcome will be for inhabitants of this planet. Will we be accepted into the citizenry of the universe or will we be rejected and destroyed, found unfit to be part of the sinless nature that is dominant in the universe, i.e. Heaven?

    1 Corinthians 4:9) For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle
    to the world, both to angels and to men

    So in essence, planet Earth is a theater which the whole universe is watching… And is watching because this is the only planet in the universe that is under the enslavement of Sin…

  2. Well, my first question is this: How do you know there is life on other planets?

    Secondly: How do you know this world is the only one in a great war as you state?

    Thirdly: How do you get from that scripture to the conclusion that the rest of the universe is watching us?

    Fourth: How do you recon that we are under the enslavement of sin? That would require validation of Genesis at a minimum. Such is not likely to happen, or not credibly so.
