The whole world is aware that NASA’s latest Mars rover, named Perseverance, has successfully landed. Here’s their headline: Touchdown! NASA’s Mars Perseverance Rover Safely Lands on Red Planet. Their article says, with our bold font:
About the size of a car, the 2,263-pound (1,026-kilogram) robotic geologist and astrobiologist will undergo several weeks of testing before it begins its two-year science investigation of Mars’ Jezero Crater. While the rover will investigate the rock and sediment of Jezero’s ancient lakebed and river delta to characterize the region’s geology and past climate, a fundamental part of its mission is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life.
PhysOrg also has headlines about it — for example: Touchdown: NASA’s Perseverance rover ready to search for life on Mars. Their article says:
After seven months in space, NASA’s Perseverance rover overcame a tense landing phase with a series of perfectly executed maneuvers to gently float down to the Martian soil Thursday and embark on its mission to search for signs of past life.
Search for signs of life? But why bother? Don’t they realize that we already know the answer? Well, not everyone knows, but some certainly do. A few days ago we wrote No Life on Venus & Hambo Always Knew It. Yes, that was about Venus, not Mars, but the principle is the same.
We quoted Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else:
[L]ife on other planets is not something we expect when we start our thinking based on the Word of God, what it teaches about the uniqueness of earth, and it being created for life (while the heavens were created for signs and seasons and to bring glory to God).
The Bible is true — eventually it will be vindicated, every single time. … We can boldly put our confidence in God and in his true Word.
So there you are. Someone should tell NASA to stop wasting money and just ask ol’ Hambo about life on Mars. He knows! And now you do too.
