Scientists Searching For Another Earth

"The finding means planet hunters are one step closer to detecting their holy grail: a habitable Earthlike planet that can sustain liquid water and support life."

Scientists look in vain to find existence of a planet identical to Earth. Why in vain? Because evidence suggests we were created specially by our Creator. Everything about Earth--its precise location from the Sun, the content of oxygen in the atmosphere, the presence of DNA in our bodies, etc., point to a Creator with awesome design. Perhaps He made another "Earth" somewhere else, but I doubt it. Accusing God of having another beloved planet is like constantly searching for your spouse's supposed "other woman".

Rather insulting, isn't it? Why do scientists spend so much money looking for something that probably doesn't exist and that we'd never be able to visit anyway, when they don't even yet have a good understanding of the human eye or brain? They can't even tell us what light is exactly--a particle? a wave? energy? They don't know.

And where do projects like this one get their funding? You guessed it--the National "Science" Foundation. I snicker.

Folks, why do we sit back and let our taxpayer money be squandered on such meaningless, trivial, stupid projects? Let's do something about it. Stop voting candidates into office that have no appreciation for a limited government. And complain to your current representatives when they vote for your money to be taken from you and spent frivilously.

That'd be a start. If you actually like the idea of spending billions of dollars to look at distant planets, then perhaps you can give your own money to such projects. But don't take mine.

State-Run Medical Care

Just because health care is "free" (i.e. tax-payer funded), doesn't mean it's quality:

A woman receiving treatment for diabetes at a state-run hospital in eastern India lost one of her eyes after ants nibbled away at it, officials said on Tuesday.The patient recovering from a post-surgery infection shrieked for help as the ants attacked her on Sunday night, but nurses told her it was normal to feel pain from the infection.On Monday, the patient's family saw a gaping hole with swarming ants in it when they lifted the bandage on her left eye.

Should Killing Unborn Babies Be a Crime?

An Indiana state representative has filed a bill to make abortion a crime in Indiana.

Woodruff's bill has divided the Indiana GOP and is considered by many to be a bill dead on arrival. Nonetheless, after thirty years of legal abortion of innocent life, isn't it about time someone made this type of murder a crime?

More than 1.6 million babies wish they were given a chance to live.
