Yessireebob, we’re gonna have a colony on the moon–why? because you saw it in a science fiction movie?–and there we’re gonna build a Temple only there ain’t gonna be no God in this Temple blah-blah-blah-blah!
The Europeans are such a reliable guide. Whatever they’re doing, turn around and do the opposite–and you’re bound to be right.
Just two years ago, the European Space Agency was babbling about how, when they go to the moon (C’mon, I’d just love to see you find the money for that!), they’re gonna leave bad ol’ “religion” behind and once they’re up there on the moon, they’re gonna build a “temple of contemplation” that won’t have no stinkin’ religion, blah-blah-blah…
Listen to this from the ESA grand poobah, who says the lunar colony will be “a fresh start, a place where there are no social conventions, no nations and no religion, somewhere where those concepts will need to be rethought from scratch.” Rethought by idiots. I marvel he didn’t ask us to imagine no possessions, while he was at it.
So… they’re gonna have a temple, but no religion. They’re even paying an in-house artist to design it. But a temple with no religion–how long do you suppose it’ll take for that vacuum to be filled by something rather nasty? I mean, do these turkeys ever think things through?
Yowsah, yowsah, folks! We’re gonna leave our Original Sin behind on earth, and live in outer space and be as gods!
Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. Psalm 127:1.
