    Funny isn't it, When I enlisted into the military, I pleaded with my career councilor to place me into a vocation related to the budding space science project. I failed in my quest too. I was at one time an avid Buck Rogers and reader of Isaac Asimov. Today I marvel at the advances of science and technology and I keep the faith that even after I am dust advances will continue.

    Lots of big government contracts and quasi government jobs.

    Not me. The moon is not a comfortable place. I would not mind a fancy space station with all the luxuries.

    "And this be our motto: „In God is our trust.“"

    If you had control over your spirit then you had an unbelievable power. It's not a joke that Jesus said the belief in god is able to move mountains. It's even able to move universes. In theory every human being would be able to do so with the power of the own spirit. But we are not ready to use in the right way the unbelievable power of the spirit. And I guess it's wise to be happy, that we still don't have this power.

    Compared with other places in the universe it's the paradise.

    Compared with what God provided for us on Earth, it's not. Nowhere else it's not. I know this from all the probes we sent. This is observational science.

    We're just not made to be multiplanetary. I can accept dying here based on the grace of God.

    What doesn't mean god made human beings without interplanetary wings. ;-)

    God didn't do that, but observational science shows that we can't get there from here to there. And there isn't a place where we can make long-term residence and be sustainable. The fine tuning facts bear this out.
