The Blaze reports (click image below) that NASA has officially created a "Planetary Defense Coordination Office". Now there are three things that I just have to point out:
1. This is a really poor time in our nation's history to spend an additional 50 million dollars we don't have. I love space and I am not a fan of the end of the world...but this seems like a really odd way to fund this type of work. Looks more like a really expensive publicity stunt.
2. The U.S. government isn't well know for being proactive on issues that are expensive and obscure. It seems to me that either there is something out there to be worried about or this isn't what it would seem to be at first glance.
3. The people who cannot secure the border of our country now appear to be taking on the job of defending the entire planet. Only America could come up with such a myopic, arrogant, and hypocritical idea.
This whole thing smells like the start of international frustration related to America being out of touch but speaking for the world or the start of a space based arms race. We really should focus on more terrestrial and homegrown issues.
I believe that no matter what worldview we espouse we should understand what we believe any why. I hope to show others that the Christian worldview is not only accurate but true. If not, I hope they will be clear on why they reject it.
