Life on Mars, or anywhere else in the universe, is a Glory of God, not a confusion to men. Men have very little to do with the Glory of God, so it is
often futile to mention it to them.
The exploration of the universe is the goal of mankind. How this concept is received by other men gives a strong indication of their nature.
I am a Christian, but I am man before I am a Christian. A man is better than most anything else, and an excellent man is better than other men. So
it goes until the greatest light of them all, who is God.
Ancient religions spoke about life in heaven, even other worlds. Modern "Christianity" is fairly silly. It has nothing of the mystery of Jesus,
and psychologically damages those who adhere to it. If you want to be a Christian, you need to jive with 2000 year old men. If you have nothing to
do with those men, then I absolutely guarantee you they have nothing to do with you.
Laddie, I wish that you gain great wisdom in your search for knowledge. If your nature is good, and you desire to do no evil, then you will become
very successful. This world is madness, and its people are often beastly and profane. They have chosen death, they don't know any better, and they
do nothing but rob and steal in their hearts.
Their thoughts do not pause in the morning, and say, "Behold the hoary day, and the glory of God." They do not love their neighbor, and say,
"Blessed be you, laddie, may your teeth and bones never break."
Those who live life without this kind of relationship to life, are those who die and vanish. Those who live and then vanish think that because they
have become "liberated" from their obligations and terms of obedience to God, they become deranged and demented, and cause nothing but suffering for
the rest of the world. When you mention things like space travel to these people, they reply like fools, or hav eno understanding. Is it possible to
have less dignity and sense than a man who does not honor God and His excellent inheritance for our world?
That's just how I say it. You can honor God however YOU want to. But you must have some respect and honor towards the totality of this universe,
and our acquisition of learning and knowledge about it. We will soon be able to to travel and see the worlds around other stars. Those who do not
appreciate this I consider to be swine.
I strongly feel we have a need to reform our nations to the proper rule of our inheritance and intellect. Our governments should not be economic
machines. That is a terrible destruction of this world. In old times, the forces of economy and merchants were purposefully kept out of the elite
institutions, becuase it was understood that their ways were not more excellent than the king, or the emperor, and their stations was not at the
legislature or the senate. The merchantmen were kept where they belonged. Let them exchange commodities freely, but let the rule of the land be
above the money and systems of this world as much as we can make it.
Brothers, the purpose of our governments are to lead the people into the best advantage, the greatest liberty, and the most excellent path. If the
purpose of our present government is not accomplishing these things, then why do we continue it?
Does the government rule us, and refuse to submit to us? Then know your government to be a unlawful tyranny, and worthy of destruction.
This response kinda wandered a bit. But I get that way when I drink that much eggnog.
