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?
