Rev Pat Robertson on Wednesday called on NASA to stop spending time and money exploring other planets because he said that God’s only “experiment” with life was on Earth.
“Folks, I want to tell you something,” Robertson told viewers of The 700 Club. “They talk about life on other planets. In my opinion, there’s nothing but gaseous balls and barren rocks up in space. That’s all that’s there.”
“This planet is where God has got an experiment in what he wants to have accomplished,” he continued. “But somehow, people want to spend a lot of money to go to Mars! I don’t want to think that Mars is someplace I want to visit, and it would take a lot of money to get there!”

If god created the entire universe and only put life on earth, then all the more reason to go out and explore more planets, no?
Either its all #ing ours and we should go claim it, or its not all ours and we should go explore it, meet new life and be the curious wanderers our species has always been.
Anyone who stares at their feet as much as Robertson must, should just off themselves.

Can someone please tell me how:
1) Pat Robertson is still relevant?
2) Pat Robertson is relevant to Space Exploration?

The Catholic church kept science back 400 years, I think that entity, if it had kept out of the secular world, we would be on Mars now.
