Tonight, space shuttle Atlantis returns to space. If that escaped your attention it is probably because of the media's fixation on Paris Hilton.
What a commentary on our fascination with the trivial.
At a time in mankind's history where we are reaching for the stars, we concern ourselves with fads, we trivialize the genocide of cultures, we care
more about what our shareholders think than doing the "right thing" and we are allowing our God given rights to be stripped from us without even so
much as an objection from the citizenry.
We are reaching a singularity in culture, in science, in morals. We have become the very thing that we "preach" against.
Here is a little prediction: It is very possible that during this mission of Atlantis, something incontrovertible could be documented. The
singularity. The watershed moment that will grab the world's attention. The moment in time when something beyond ourselves manifests. How can explain
what I don't understand...just a very strong feeling.
Godspeed Atlantis, come home safe...and take lots of pictures!
Atlantis has accomplished and will accomplish great things.
