NASA has just launched its latest mission, at a cost of $2.5 billion, to search for life on Mars.
Countless billions have already been spent by America and other countries to answer this most fundamental and important of questions for mankind.
All those billions, alas, have been wasted.
NASA may just as well have thrown all that money on a bonfire or stuffed it into a rocket and blasted it off into deep space as far as Catholic journalist Mary Kenny is concerned.
Writing in the Irish Catholic Mary tells the world:
There is nothing there. There is nothing on any of the planets in our Solar System. Earth alone has been given life, beauty and infinite variety.
Not only that but Mary goes on to lay down a challenge to the scientific world:
I’ll eat my hat, several of them, if any form of residual life is discovered on Mars.
So there you have it, it was all a gigantic waste of money and resources.
Surely it’s time for mankind to wake up and take heed of religious fundamentalists when they make absolutist statements with no supporting evidence whatsoever.
