Is there itsy-bitsy life on Mars?


To the Editor:

(CBS/AP) CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – The world's biggest extraterrestrial explorer, NASA's Curiosity rover, rocketed toward Mars on Saturday on a search for evidence that the red planet might once have been home to itsy-bitsy life. The primary goal of the $2.5 billion mission is to see whether cold, dry Mars might have been hospitable for microbial life once upon a time—or might even still be conducive to life now. No actual life detectors are on board; rather, the instruments will hunt for organic compounds…CBS News 11-26-11
Here we just entering the Christmas season and our government is hell bent on discovering life on another planet for the modest sum of $2.5 billion. Our leaders don’t object to this colossal expenditure of treasure because they have been duped into thinking that this adventure is a valid use of federal money in the interest of science. The smarty pant engineers who dreamed up NASA’s Curiosity are mesmerized by their ingenious tools that can make a robot on Mars go left or right by remote control. Wow! But the motivating engine behind these inventions is to discredit the Bible and the notion that God commanded light in the darkness and life here on earth and nowhere else. So they will land their robot on Mars and will search under and over every rock and will find nothing but dead, dry, cold rock, but that won’t stop them. This exploration is not an experiment of science, nor a pursuit of truth; it is an act of rebellion and is the fist of contempt by man to discredit God and His holy writ: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” And so puny man will try again and next time spend even more and go further into the darkness of space and find…nothing. In contrast, remember the brave men of Apollo 8 on Christmas Eve 1968?

Why are the most righteous men of the ACLU so quiet? Where is the demand to separate church and state on this issue and make no mistake the marriage of our government with the spirit of Antichrist is a religion whose creed is to remove every trace, every legacy of the spirit of Christ from our national memory. If the town snow plow clears the parking lot for the next Sunday morning meeting, we never hear the end of it: affidavits, lawyers, briefings, addresses and the town is put on notice that it might be sued out of existence. And God forbid that a Christmas tree be put on the holy ground of our government schools where Christmas carols might be sung! So in this religion, there is to be no separation of church and state; they are to be one and there is no problem if the government taxes to empower the sprit of Antichrist.

But the spirit of Christ declares triumphantly (1) that Christ Jesus came to save his people from their sins, (2) that He will avenge these people before the unbelievers of Antichrist and (3) that on the last day of history, Judgment Day, He will return and destroy the spirit of Antichrist and this earth (not Mars). And that is why we can wish you all a very Merry Christmas and not charge the taxpayer a dime!
