In order to reach Mars it will take approximately 2 years of travel. Gabrielle Gifford’s brother-in-Law will be spending one year on the International Space Station instead of the normal six months that a US astronaut usually do. This according to her husband, Mark Kelly, talking with Wolf Blitzer of CNN, is to prepare us for the long two year ride to Mars.
So to the final frontier, full steam ahead, we will boldly go where no human has gone before.
I have seen many of an artiste rendition of space invasions by so called super creatures with advanced technology and intelligence, invading earth and taking over. This is depicted from cartoons for kids to the attempted block busters. Usually the creatures have depleted their resources and are here or are attempting to come here, conquer us and take our resources for the proliferation of their existence.
Now with that said let us take a peek behind the curtain. If I turn up being cynical again please forgive me. (It could be my flaw). Anyway remember this that no one, nor creature for that matter, sent the script from outer space. This idea is germinated and excreted from our souls, and the depths of our imagination, and beliefs. It is a known fact that our resources for longevity is questionable and this could have stemmed from mismanagement, bad management, greed, selfishness, headstrongness, no agreement, nationalism, hatred, no natural affection, Pride, no respect for our environment, no respect for man nor God.
As a result of all that global warming has ensued and species are dying off. Super storms are here, major earthquakes, mudslides, poverty, deprivation, diseases and pestilences, starvation, malnourishment, wars and killings. Even though these are not necessarily unique to our era, the epoch from the first world war to now, has seen a proportion of those things which cannot be compared to any other period of mankind’s existence.
So in all of this we are preparing to lift off, blast off, take to the sky like a flock of scared birds and fly away to another place. Indeed it is to Mars or bust! The only time before that there was this calculated exodus of humanity was when gold was discovered in the hills of California. And so it was to California or bust. Again the cynic in me is saying but at least there was gold there. That was a known fact. 18.4 billion dollars was spent in 2011 for space exploration. Exploration that is! and we still have not cured the common cold.
In all of this we can’t seem to be corrected by our imagination as the corrective part of our cerebrum is turned off for some reason. Isn’t it sheer prudence to ask if we cannot solve the problems here will we not just take the problems with us someplace else? Also, shouldn’t we be spending all this dough on correcting our problems here?
I would assume that if our brains are functioning right, under these circumstances, we should be in agreement to take care of our home here, before we expend our self and resources to find another. I am a firm belief that this is the only home we got. This is the only home we know and this is the only home we were given, this planet earth.
Maybe I a am a simpleton but there are too many what ifs here, just to say leave earth and go explore space. Man believe they are not alone in this universe, so what if there is a super race unseen to our eyes already on mars that have a purpose for their home, and we are loosing the purpose for our home and trying to take theirs. What if a man tries to break into your home and take it away from you, doesn’t universal law require you to take actions to prevent this. So then my friend should they zap you and send you a scurrying back to earth? Or maybe capture you and make you into their slaves? (Cynical isn’t it?)
Wouldn’t all these big monies be better spent to address our situation here like the curing of Cancer and other malignant diseases, harnessing the resource of our earth in more responsible and protective manner? In other words wouldn’t our efforts be better expended in preserving life here?
Earth Or Mars
Now if we are able to colonize mars who would be the draft citizens? What would you do with the others, dump them in the red sea like pharaoh’s army?
No to that you may say, we could keep the two planets. You could say Columbus did not take the whole Europe with him when he discovered the Americas, and consequently people come and go. That is what you could say and I would counter by saying that is true, but the privileged few will most likely go first and take the others with them as slaves, the less fortunate! I wouldn’t even be surprised if you would say that would be an easy way of emptying earth’s prisons by taking the criminals to pave the way like they did Australia! If this is not how it is going to be then fine! But I still will say it would be of paramount importance to solve one primary problem here and that is diseases.
Most diseases here on earth are the results of improper living. So tell me are there going to be some fundamental and thorough change overnight to proper living? Hardly that. Cancer on mars would wipe you out quicker as there would not be any natural cures from trees and if there are super beings, they will not take our communicable diseases lying down like the indigenous people of the West, to European diseases. (Cynical isn’t it?)
But seriously! Wouldn’t it be better to take care of ourselves here instead of trying to run away from the problems we create?
Soursop and Cancer
Maybe man does not have the answer. As a matter of fact these are critical time hard to deal with. I experienced some of that critical time hard to deal with in my bout with prostate cancer, another one of our debilitating diseases. Until no resident will say I am sick we have to be proactive with our health to avoid such things as the devastation and ruin that they invariably dump on us.
We should continue to support one another with information we know, words of encourage and advise. That is why I am including today the information on Soursop, known to be 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. Click this link and educate yourself.(Soursop and Cancer)
It should be noted that soursop grows prolifically in the equatorial regions of our home, the earth. In Jamaica for one you could smell it as you walk through the forest. If you get there ask the man in the street for some and he will surely obliged.
Also please read my personal survival story at Amazon Author Central entitled Prostate Cancer And Me...Or You, The Two Stages(Man To Man) along with other inspirational expressions in Its On Now and The Face of Faces.
Until next time walk good and pack light.
