The Body's Incredible Healing Powers
Mark 2:17

God has given your body incredible powers of healing and repair, and you could almost say that we carry our very own doctor and pharmacy inside us. When testing new medicines, one group of patients...

Houston, we have a problem!

At one time NASA was involved with extending mankind's knowledge through space exploration. With the historic flight of Apollo 11 in 1969, the space agency celebrated its proudest moment as the world watched Neil Armstrong and then Buzz Aldrin step out onto the surface of the moon.

Lately, however, NASA seems to be more concerned with looking for life elsewhere in the universe to help prove that evolution is true. And more recently, NASA has embarked on an exciting mission to reach not Mars but to reach out to the Muslim world to make them feel good about their scientific contributions.

We're referring to a recent interview – given by NASA Administrator Charles Bolden to Al Jazeera rather than to the people of America – about his marching orders from the president:

"When I became the NASA administrator – or before I became the NASA administrator – he [Obama] charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering."

Bolden denied that this outreach to Muslims was a diplomatic mission for the space agency. So what was the reason for the mission? Bolden said that the United States is not going to travel beyond low-Earth orbit on its own and that no country is going to make it to Mars without international help.

Isn't that wonderful? While America was once able to put a man on the moon without international help, we are no longer able to do so. Frankly, Creation Moments is not surprised. Long gone are the days when astronauts proudly planted a U.S. flag on the moon. Though funded by U.S. taxpayers, NASA's political agenda is now planted solidly on globalism.

Those are our thoughts. What are yours?

It seems that NASA has lost their way. Instead of exploring space, the head (who seems to be a puppet for President Obama) wants to change the organization to an educational and political arm of the administration. As far as their desire to look for evidence for evolution, they have done this for years. Problem is every time they look they have more questions instead of answers. For example, have you ever noticed that from the very beginning Neil Armstrong had to jump quite a distance down from the Lunar Lander to the surface of the moon. (Take a look at the old videos of the first steps on the moon.) Why was this? It seems based on the belief that the age of the moon and our solar system was old that NASA scientist were expecting much more dust on the moon's surface than they actually found - several feet instead of a few inches. So Mr. Armstrong took quite a leap. Instead of shortening the age of the moon, they revised their calculations on the deposition rate of the dust to match what they found. Some thinking is just hard to let go of. At least in the past, NASA had a meaningful goal and space technology created new and interesting technology and products. It seems NASA has now lost their way - one might say even lost in political space. Let's get back to NASA's (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) original purpose of exploring our solar system and space beyond and leave the promotion of feel-good education to the educators. It seems that President Obama was talking to the wrong director.

Isn't it funny how America is suddenly so feeble that she can't act without the consent and help of other nations? Despite advances in technology, we have no ability to achieve what we were able to accomplish 40 years ago. Talk about putting America down instead of bringing her up. And our tax dollars are going to pay for this?

What? Our tax dollars are going to make other nations feel good about their historic contributions to math and engineering? Why should that be part of the bill America has to pay? I thought space exploration was about exploring space, not about emptying our pocketbooks to bolster the ego of other nations.

Once America wanted to beat other nations into space. Now she wants to spend her resources convincing other nations they are superior to her. This is worse than a waste of taxpayers' money. It's a shameful disgrace.

The evolutionist agenda spoils any scientific discoveries we might make. Instead of looking at facts, NASA is looking at how to make the facts fit in with evolutionism. Scientists take a universe that is amazingly designed and say it had to come about by accident. The search for alien life is an attempt to verify that evolution has taken place elsewhere, so all that you see came about by a random, undirected process. It basically an attempt to "disprove" the existence of a Creator, even when faced with the overwhelming evidence of His hand in everything. That's a pretty ignorant and ungrateful mindset, especially from America, who owes her freedom to the Supreme Judge of Heaven and Earth.

Erm, Americas freedom came from bloody battles against the British. Then America was soundly built on the principle that the nation is free from any influence of religion in running the country.

You really should read Washington and some of the other founders. They saw the Christian God as essential to the success of the country.

Obama's talking point version may indeed have been, "to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science,.... and math and engineering," but the fact is, they have made no contribution to science, math or engineering. It is more appropriate to assume Obama's intention is to transfer as much technology to the Muslim community as he can before he gets thrown out of office at the polls and as with everything else he's doing, to do so on 'our' dollar.

Tom,

With all due respect, the Arab world had a lot to do with math. Babylon and Egypt alone demonstrated this, not to mention the greater Arab region. Even my 7th grader knows this. The islamic Golden Age (600-1600) produced an abundance of math and science advances. This is basic history, friend. Start here and verify on your own:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_mathematics#Importance" title="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_mathematics#Importance">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_mathematics#Importance</a>

While I agree that the Muslim world had input in the mathematics and science of this world, it is NOT the job of the head of NASA to confer with them about their contributions. He has a duty, yes a duty, to report to the American people, who have and are now supporting this space endeavor with our tax $$$$$.
It is not his place to make the Muslims 'feel good about their participation in these fields", they have their own to make them feel good about what they have done.

We have ceased to be the strongest nation in the world, to a downed nation, and according to our President, a country to be ashamed for standing for the right to exist. We have helped so many other countries, even those that opposed us, as the Muslims do, and we get slapped in the face by our own President whenever he speaks in other countries.

I for one don't agree that we need to apologize for anything...we are the United States of America, and we became strong because of our people standing behind our nation. We should stand now and be counted as one. God bless America!!!!!

You have to quote wikipedia? You could have posted that quotation yourself. Why did the "Islamic Golden Age" end in 1600? (BTW others say that it ended much sooner.)
They had 1400 years to invent the light bulb, the locomotive, the airplane etc. Yet all these were invented after the Protestant Reformation and after the American Revolution. Hmmm!

In a word .Awesome! Truly inspirational viedos and really well made.As a high school math teacher in New York, I agree with everything that she has to say about the high school math curriculum. It tends to ignore most of the really interesting, inspirational, fun elements of mathematics and instead presents it as a dull, disconnected series of topics and skills that need to be covered before the test . The curriculum is taylor made to make even the most wide-eyed and curious students hate mathematics and it does not promote dynamic teaching. I hope that, at some point in my 30-year career, the state will start empowering teachers to have some say in how we present mathematics to our students. No more rigid, state imposed math curricula. Let's start the revolution.

This is the path that America is on. First, she denies her God. Then she follows after every false idol that men have. Do you know what we need to do to reach out to the Muslim world? We need the gospel message. That has eternal weight and value. Giving them a pat on the back for scientific achievements is a stupid waste of money.

I have not read all the comments posted on this topic but I would like to draw your attention to the last statement in this article. "NASA's political agenda is now planted solidly on globalism"

I realize what I am about to share maybe a difficult pill to swallow it was for me at first then the worlds of Jesus came to memory there he was standing before the ruling arm of the province at that time Pilot and he was asked are you a king then? and he replied "My Kingdom Is Not Of This World" and in another place it states Satan is the king of this world taking them captive at his will. and in an other place it says "He the Lord hardens who he wills"

the word Globalism when understood in it's proper context implies a group of interlocking organizations the IMF CFR RAND CORP TRILATERAL COMMISSION G7 the Committee OF 300 the Black nobility the Builderburg group etc. who' sol agenda is the complete pillage and control of all the the worlds resources through cleverly devised instruments of Debt and Finance such as derivatives and banking oligarchy. manipulation of the markets and distortion of true science and history and the complete destruction of the family which is the building blocks of society and it' foundation Christiandom. organizations such as planed parenthood and the women's liberation movement both funded by the Rockefeller Foundation have been very instrumental in this.

One thing seems very certain Gods word teaches that toward the end knowledge shall increase in all areas.
and thanks to the internet it has that said if you really want to know why Obama made such an odd request to Mr.Bolden I invite you to see the Obama Deception free on youtube. Q: why did the Lord say the children of this world are in their generation wiser then the children of light?

"Though funded by U.S. taxpayers, NASA's political agenda is now planted solidly on globalism."

I'm glad you notice.
