Astrobiologists are everywhere

Now there is an astrobiologist Barbie doll. “The Astrobiologist Barbie wears jeans, safety glasses, white coat and holds a Erlenmeyer flask. The hair and eye colours of the doll  are very similar to professor Zita Martins.”

Any idiot can claim to be an astrobiologist, and as long as he sticks to the party line of abundant intelligent biological ET life in the universe–for which there is no direct evidence whatever–people will listen to him in awe.

SETI should smoke DMT?

“DMT is one of the most potent entheogens known to man, and the trip it induces is significantly different than other psychoactive substances. Users describe being transported to a distant realm where they meet seemingly autonomous entities, and often those same entities appear to different people. Now, researchers are attempting to catalog these experiences to figure out just what, or who, those DMT entities are.”

Of course, these entities are the same ones that SETI is looking for, in the Biblical worldview. The ones they will eventually find, if they ever find any, will also be these ones that appear to people who smoke DMT.

Space makes astronauts weak

Nick Devereux explains how NASA is not letting the public know how weak the astronauts get in space. They have to be cared for and rehabilitated after their return. I conclude that this means that, if NASA did let it be known, the public would realize that the “going to Mars soon” hype is just a hoax to raise money.

NASA must know they would be sending the astronauts to certain death. They would not be able to perform the strenuous activities that would be needed for survival after landing on Mars. An expensive and difficult artificial gravity would be needed, it seems, if even that would work. Science fiction shows just ignore the problem and assume that spacemen have gravity.

“Spending a year in space takes such a toll on the human body that astronauts literally have to learn how to walk again once they’re back on Earth. At least, that’s what seems to have happened to Scott Kelly — the American astronaut who spent 340 days on the International Space Station (ISS) between 2015 and 2016…In an exclusive video (not available–here is a short substitute–Ed) given to The Verge by PBS, Kelly is seen trying to walk on a straight line right after landing in the steppes of Kazakhstan. He slowly gets up and stumbles. Putting one foot in front of the other looks like a gargantuan task, as if his legs are made of jelly. Six hours after landing, his steps are a bit quicker, but still uncertain. And after 22 hours, he’s much more stable, but still wobbly. It’s as if Kelly is a one-year-old just learning how to walk.”  –The Verge

Continuing from The Verge article

// That’s because zero gravity messes with our sense of orientation. On Earth, we know where is up and where is down. In space, not so much. Sensors inside our ears, which are part of the vestibular system that controls balance, are thrown off — often causing astronauts to feel dizzy or queasy the first few days in space. Once they get back to Earth, it takes a while for their bodies to readjust. Hence, the walking problems.

And it’s not just the messed-up balance system, either. The first time I interviewed Kelly — two months after he’d come back from his year in space — he told me his feet still hurt. Two months after being thrust back into Earth’s gravity. This is just one way long periods in space affect the human body. And that’s exactly why Kelly spent a year on the ISS to begin in: by understanding how zero gravity changes us, the next generation of astronauts will be better prepared for deep-space travel. //

SETI looks for ET

The Amazing Kreskin” gets hundreds of people out in the desert and tries to get them to believe they are seeing UFOs with ETs aboard.  It succeeds with some. SETI does not learn a lesson from this, and continues to waste money looking for ET. METI even actively tries to message them. They think they are doing science, and that will protect them from the foolishness inherent in the search for ET. It is foolish to look, because all that you can find is entities that want to pretend to be your gods, and enslave you, as they did to mankind in the historical past. God reveals Himself in the Bible. If freedom in Christ is not good enough for those looking for ET, then they are falling for a trick.

Seriously, if the scientific community cannot accept a complex, encoded molecule like DNA as a communication from a higher intelligence, should any radio signal be accepted? It seems that the scientists would be able to debunk any signal as a naturally produced phenomenon. The scientists even think they themselves arose by a natural process of evolution. They have debunked pulsars and fast radio bursts, which were once thought to be from ETs.

How would they be able to not debunk a signal from space, if they can debunk DNA as a natural occurrence? Could they ever agree that they got an intelligent signal? I really don’t think so.

Reformed Geocentrism

John Calvin and Martin Luther were geocentrists. I don’t really see how one could believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God, and still assert that the earth is not at least philosophically central in the universe. But there is no logic police that requires what people do makes sense.

”This paper does not focus in any detail on the arguments for a geocentric universe with the Earth immobile, a view rejected by secular astronomers. Sadly, even though there are approximately seventy verses of Scripture that defend a fixed Earth and a moving Sun, heliocentrism is accepted by most Christian astronomers and creation parachurch organizations. CMI Ministries strongly defends helio-centrism, as demonstrated by Jonathan Sarfati and Robert Carter. Besides the error of asserting science is a source of truth, the typical excuse for ignoring the many Scriptural verses is that geocentrism is only phenomenological language, or possibly poetry. However, one Christian astronomer, Geradus Bouw, defends geocentrism on the basis of Scripture, and a geocentric mathematical model can be constructed which is as equally valid as the heliocentric model.”

Star Jelly on the Moon

“Star Jelly” seems to have been found on the moon. It is not found to be biological when it falls on earth, and that makes sense when it appears on the moon.

“Scientists commissioned by the National Geographic Society have carried out tests on samples found in the United States, but have failed to find any DNA in the material.”

Quotation above from Reid, Melanie (18 September 2009). “Nature 1, Science 0 as finest minds fail to explain star jelly”. Times Online. London. Retrieved 19 September 2009. Alternative theories for the origins of “star jelly”, a strange mucous substance found on the Scottish hills in the autumn abound. Could it be the remnants of a meteor shower, regurgitated frogspawn, fungus – or, less romantically, the gel from disposable nappies? Is it evidence of extraterrestrial life, or perhaps the fallout from top-secret attempts by scientists to manipulate the weather? …”
