A few days ago I read where NASA is pretty positive that by the year 2026 they will have proof that we are not alone in the Universe. If this pans out it will be the greatest event in our History. Proof that we are not alone doesn’t necessary mean we will have contacted them just that we know someone is out there. For every important piece of information that is announced there are the naysayers and this time it comes from that horses hind end Ken Ham the CEO of the Creationist Museum in Kentucky. He stated that it doesn’t matter if there are aliens out there because they are not gods’ children and are all going to hell. I actually had to read the statement twice as I thought I had made a mistake the first time. It is incomprehensible that this Troglodyte in Homo Sapien disguise would not only say that but believe it. According to this idiot only man is the child of god and the earth was created especially for us and there are no other beings in the Universe. He is quoted in The Huffington Post article as saying
Jesus did not become the “GodKlingon” or the “GodMartian”! Only descendants of Adam can be saved. God’s Son remains the “Godman” as our Savior. In fact, the Bible makes it clear that we see the Father through the Son (and we see the Son through His Word). To suggest that aliens could respond to the gospel is just totally wrong.
This has to be one of the most idiotically bigoted pieces of tripe I have ever read. The hubris of this man is beyond the pale.
Ken Ham is an Australian but like every other whacko in the world was drawn to the U.S. by that giant nut bar magnet that lies in the middle of the country. How one nation could have so many moronic individuals both home grown and imported is really on for the books, Comic Books. He is also the founder of Answers in Genesis, and expounds such ridiculous ideas as the Earth is 6000 years old and that man and dinosaur roamed the earth together. I guess if you read a fairy tale a thousand times you could end up believing it. Ham has a Bachelors’ degree in Applied Science so you would think he would have a logical outlook on life but instead he took the wrong fork in the road and ended up a Creationists which is about as far from science as the Andromeda Galaxy is from Earth (2.5 million light years). It is somewhat sad that a person schooled in science ends up believing the fairy tales of the bible. If I did believe in god it would seem to me that if he would have created the universe and life then every living being in the universe would be his children. Well you read the quote above but let’s just say that in some very remote way he is right, I hope hell is a pretty big place to take the sudden surge in souls coming its’ way on judgement day.
I keep looking at the quote and for the life of me I can’t fathom someone being so narrow minded as to say that let alone believe it. In my youth I believed in god and went to mass every Sunday then one day when I was older I realized that what religion had taught me was all lies, with the only positive thing being a moral code. If there was a Garden of Eden it was in Africa as all human life arose there. If there was a great flood it possibly occurred when the Black Sea broke through to flow into the Mediterranean. The Tower of Babel was more than like a Ziggurat which became common in parts of Mesopotamia such as Ur. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was due to an earthquake as was the destruction of Jericho’s, walls. Of course when god caused the sun to turn black it was an eclipse. We are now in the 21st century and we know the logical reasons for all the so called miracles in the bible but there are still hundreds of millions who believe the Bible and the Quran to be the spoken word of god.
There is life out there in the Galaxy or the Universe beyond it stands to reason. Asimov once said “that if man is the only life in the Universe then we are freaks and Nature abhors freaks”. Seeing as we are still here I guess we are not freaks after all or Nature would have destroyed us by now.
Well mister Ken Ham I reject you as a prophet and refer you to your own Bible Mathew: 7 verse 15 to 20.
