A group of rich people is not willing to wait for life in space to be discovered; they have declared their own nation in space. Sounds like one of those offshore countries where nobody actually lives, just an ultimate tax haven.
NASA keeps attributing the Mars dust storm to winds, and solar heating, and does not want the public to think about the electrified dust devils. What keeps the dust particles aloft after sunlight can no longer reach the surface? They never integrate articles like this into current theory, even though they are from NASA. They really can’t fit them into current theory, so they just pretend they do not apply. Large-scale electrical sculpting of the face of Mars would introduce all kinds of questions to current theories of gravity and physics, and cause the public to realize how little NASA really grasps about how the universe works.
Some want to find ET, in the hope that it will help them believe that there is no God in the Biblical sense, no judgment, no hell, and maybe even no life after death.
But people believe lots of things, because they first decide they want them to be true, and then interpret everything they see as if what they believe is true. Science helps us get past this, but only if we use it properly. It cannot give us final information, only tentative answers that are subject to revision or they become dogma, and just another religion. Atheism has been so strongly confused with science that few people can separate them. People can come to believe really stupid things, and be unable to see how silly it is because they first assume that the stupid thing must be true before they collect the data and analyze it.
Unfortunately for the atheist, the Bible accounts for life in space–it is merely the angels, the fallen angels, their minions the devils, and God. The fallen ones would be glad to present themselves as BENEVOLENT extraterrestrials from the Pleiades if that is what people would believe. The others consider it “not our business” if they reveal themselves for some reason.
Richard Dolan tells us that Kelly Johnson, the director of the Skunk Works in the seventies, did not trust the “ETs.” He said that any interaction with them would be disastrous. Interestingly, Dolan cannot see past the dogmatic atheistic cosmology of the universe, and overlooks the obvious action of the Biblical God.
The difficulties of finding life in space include determining what “life” is. Here, Brother Guy J. Consolmagno, of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), the Vatican astronomer, defines “life” for us according to the precepts of ATHEISM. He has some interesting things to say, but seems to long for intellectual acceptance by atheists, not acceptance by God.
His concept of religion and science as not in conflict is true, but not in the way he means. Atheists use science as a metaphysical philosophy to remove God from the universe and define reality as nothing but material. He accepts their premise. Why science and religion are not in conflict, is that science is nothing but a tool that can help us build things and feed ourselves. It is not a religion, which is the way Brother Consolmagno uses it.
“He believes in the need for science and religion to work alongside one another rather than as competing ideologies. In 2006, he said, “Religion needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality, to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism – it’s turning God into a nature god.” –Wikipedia
NASA tries to make people think there is or was life on Mars by redefining life as organic molecules. One no doubt can find life on Mars using redefinition, but plasmas like this electrified dust devil may actually be life, in a form that we do not recognize. This brings up thorny questions in astrobiology: Who has the authority to define life? Is life necessarily biological? Obviously no living man can answer these questions in a final way. Now what? We have to turn to mind-boggling ideas. There has to be a God to define life and enforce that definition on everyone. That God would be alive, although recognizing Him would require a redefinition of life that would exclude mechanistic, materialist science. But some deny the concept of God itself. Now what? Will they become irrelevant to reality, and be cut off from life itself, with the destiny of eternal death?
We have photos of the Chelyabinsk meteor event. The electric universe people think it was an electrical discharge from the earth that caused the meteor to explode, but there is no electrical arcing in the photos. The answer may be in the phenomenon of micrometeoroids which turn into plasma when they contact satellites at speeds of many miles per second. Kind of like what happens in a particle accelerator. The molecules of the atmosphere are the target.
“…poking around for some numbers seems to come up with a value of about 5 gigajoules of energy in a typical lightning strike and a ton of TNT is around 4.2 GJ. So a lightning strike would be about 1.2 tons of TNT.” Looks like electricity falls short.
The Russian meteor is described by NASA–
// The large fireball (technically, called a “superbolide”) observed on the morning of Feb. 15, 2013, in the skies near Chelyabinsk, Russia, was caused by a relatively small asteroid approximately 17 to 20 meters in size (about 18.6 to 21.9 yards) that entered Earth’s atmosphere at high speed and at a shallow angle. In doing so, it released a tremendous amount of energy, fragmented at high altitude, and produced a shower of pieces of various sizes that fell to the ground as meteorites. // –From NASA in 2013
It is not stated if any of these pieces were ever found and analyzed. NASA has been trying to sell the idea that they need funding to protect the earth from “asteroid impact,” so they have a financial incentive to not tell us all they know. The rock discovered in the lake sediments below the hole in the ice could not be tied to the event with certainty, as far as the articles tell us.
It does not give us much confidence when an article about “everything we know about the Chelyabinsk meteorite” starts out telling us they know it is 4.5 billion years old and left over from the formation of the solar system.
“Physical collisions alone are cause for concern (to satellites), but a second threat may be even more ominous. Because of the tremendous impact velocities involved (closing with the Earth at 71 km per second, the Leonids [meteors] are the fastest-colliding cometary fragments known), the highly charged plasma clouds generated by the impacts of even extremely small Leonids particles may be powerful enough to kill satellites that would have been minimally affected by the physical collisions.”
People sometimes ask me if I am a scientist. I tell them I am a mad scientist, which is a person who does scientific experiments that do not have the sanction of the accepted scientific establishment, and that often support conclusions which they would not approve.
