you are right i heard the news too and thought God's creation is perfect with all this rocketing about the world ending in 2012 this discovery of water in the moon as you said changes everything! Let's see the miracle of life evolve in front of our very own eyes isn't great...
Finally a water break on my marathon runs to the moon, I was always so thirsty. Seriously though what a neat find, now if only we could find a way to focus on space exploration instead of, finding new and creative ways to argue with each other.
I've been looking at work being done on a space elevator. If someone can ever find a way to do it, the costs associated with lofting things into orbit would crash, finally opening doors to colonization of other bodies in the Solar System. It's only a matter of time.
I just read how a few NASA scientists have dug up results that showed some moon rock samples taken back in 1969 showed water, but due to prevailing scientific beliefs at the time, the scientists who analyzed them back then just chalked up the results as due to contamination by the astronauts who collected them.
am fine i see your busy again, sometimes when i am not too busy I read all the forum responses and you are one busy dude, I like the way you participate and explain things comprehensively, not that i agree with you most of the time, but I like the effort you put into it! and your avatar too, hmmmm
Yes, I am. There is much work to be done and I'm only getting started.
And, btw- You don't have to agree with everything I say, but the fact that you're open to some, makes my work all the more pleasing and satisfying. It's important that people realize the importance of their own existence, so they can take complete control of their lives and do whatever they want to with their lives. To do so, one must FREE their MIND!
But the moon is made of cheese. That is the only thing that makes any sense.
I am currently unable to smell the BS as all I can smell is the burning trash from the government "stimulation," that will not mean my house hold tax has just doubled. Apparently this is a time warp and the bill I kept from last year was cunningly altered by the US/Muslim radicals/Communists/pirates/whatever to fool me into believeing I paid half as much last year.
Look at it this way - if there is water on the moon, I guess that means CitiBank owns it now huh?
Bah! You make a point tantrum. In recent years, I've developed a fascination for space and the great unanswered mysteries of the universe, but we really need to reprioritize and focus a bit more on Earth's immediate concerns.
Still, its nice to hear people getting riled about moon water instead of something idiotic like Kristen Stewart's most recent fashion faux pas.
Yeah...I recall reading an article about it a few months ago. Maybe that explains why there is already a COG station on the moon. Let's just hope it doesn't get wiped out by elliptical orbiting space debris.
I remember, hearing something about it. I guess government, media and those in charge, finally decided that mankind could try to move forward, even though this evidence of water on the moon has been around since the late 60's.
With that said- I agree with Tantrum. The FACT that we are just finding this out and now, of all times, when we have bigger problems, is only there to distract, or mislead the public and to give them each HOPE of better times.
This doesn't fix or change anything how we are as a society, nor how we approach fixing the problems we already have.
The question is - "How are the Leaders around the World going present/show/spin/convey to us that they are truly working in the best interests of Mankind?"
Isn't about time- we MAKE those in charge, finally listen to the people for a change, instead of spinning every topic off or putting it on some else's shoulders.
It is not for others to do for you, but you must do for others!
This isn't a political ploy. If you think we are not doing enough to fix our problems, address the people who are supposed to be fixing our problems. They are failing even though they are spending MUCH more money that is being spent on space exploration.
And, if you feel more money is needed, I can think of a particular on-going "situation" that has been draining our country of more money than can ever be justified. See, that's shameful.
Space exploration? Yes. Leave us nerds alone. We want to know what's up there.
I'm not saying it is or it is not. My point was that 'government' official leaders are the reason for the lack of money available for space exploration which is also related to the religious fundamentalists, who see space exploration as a waste of human resources(but also scare the hell out of them).
The more information mankind learns about itself- the more evolved our society becomes. Thus more complex- which will require more rational and logicial thinking people. The Human race will have to dump their 'mystical' beliefs, so they themselves can be integrated into society, with real meaning and purpose of life, so the human race will live on.
The next step of mankind is in the manner in which they think. The most complex society and business gets- Integrational Thinking is going to be required. This means- every person must be one with oneself and confident enough to move forward with all their mind and effort.
somewhere is the religion is dead forum last night, Pr0metheus put a link to an article about the Vatican supporting this. It was very interesting. Point being, the search for alien life is valid because aliens were also created by god. It went along with your idea of dumping 'mystical beliefs'. It was cool...
(ok, sorry, no more religion in the awesome water on the moon forum )
