One episode of THE UNIVERSE by the History Channel deals with the colonization of .... well Mars in particular.
The series was made when everyone thought the USA would never stop the "space program" - I guess when MONEY was as it seems no objection, and would be there forever.
Well 2008 put an end to that idea......and the USA space program has been stopped at least by the Government, the private people are now taking up the banner.
This episode of colonizing Mars brings out the STUPID and SILLY ideas of men. As they admit everything you must take with you on such a mission. And to want to live on a barren frozen rock shows the folly of some minds.
Just because it is there, like down in the deep 3 mile bottom of some oceans, does not mean you should think of living there. The MONEY it would take to do such a thing is MASSIVE to say the least, money that could be used for MUCH BETTER purposes.
I would hope that most USA people are against the use of large amounts of money for space colonization be it on the Moon or Mars.
WE WERE NOT PHYSICALLY CREATED BY THE GOD OF THIS UNIVERSE TO EVEN THINK ABOUT COLONIZATION ON ANY MOON OR PLANET.
THERE ARE MANY THINGS ON THS EARTH THAT ARE FAR MORE WORTHY OF THE MONEY IT WOULD TAKE TO TRY AND COLONIZE MARS.
IT IS TIME FOR ALL PEOPLE TO GET PRIORITIES IN ORDER. TIME FOR THE RICH TO USE THEIR MONEY FOR THE BENEFITS OF THIS EARTH AND THE PEOPLE ON IT.
WHEN WE BECOME THE VERY SONS OF GOD IN HIS KINGDOM, WE CAN HAVE ALL ETERNITY TO ENJOY MOVING AROUND THE UNIVERSE, WHEN WE WILL NOT NEED TO CARRY ANYTHING WITH US TO SURVIVE AND LIVE.
