Pentagon Tries to Figure Out Whether Jesus Died for Klingons

If we are to avoid national bankruptcy, every sector of the behemoth in Washington must be scaled back to size, including even those few that pertain to legitimate functions of the federal government, such as defense. The Pentagon spends our money not only on a military whose might is squandered by left-wing ideologues opposed to America’s interests, but on lunacy like this:

In addition to $1.5 billion being spent on a plan to invent roll-up beef jerky, an iPhone app that helps people schedule their coffee breaks and scientific research on the swimming patterns of goldfish, was a workshop blending Christianity with the existence of aliens.

The event, entitled “Did Jesus Die for Klingons Too?,” focused on “the implications for Christianity if intelligent life were to be found on other planets.” According to the Global Post, actors such as LeVar Burton and Nichelle Nichols were present, and an “intergalactic gala celebration” was included, at which attendees were urged to don “starship cocktail attire.”

Within the Beltway, it’s party time as the economy staggers toward collapse.

Those who spend other people’s money on a coercive basis are never going to do it responsibly. This is one of the countless reasons the Founding Fathers attempted to prevent government’s growth.

    Many on the right are ready to throw in the towel on the fiscal cliff over the fear of defense cuts.
    Rest assured, there is plenty of lard to trim there as well.

    Why even ask the question when not even microbe has been found off world? Sure some claim theres fossilized bscteria in meteorites from Mars but those claims are dubious at best.

    If there are aliens they are likely of Demonic origin since after Satan lost the civil war in heaven, he and 1/3 of the angels were driven out of Gods universe into our. They are likely what people think of as aliens. And Christ did not die for them as they arent human.

    Could Satan have created aliens? Possibly. If they are and allied with Satan they are damned too. If they turn away from Satan, perhaps not and Christ would go to them the way he came to Earth. But until we find even a simple living life form off world, its TOTALLY STUPID TO SPEND EVEN $1 ON THIS CRAP. Let alone taxpayers money. Better to buy bullets and bombs to terminate demonic Muslim fanatics.

    Now what about our doubles in the parallel universe where the Twin Towers are still standing and everyone carries a SHOW ME card for ID and money transactions? Why dont they hold a seminar on that while they are at it? LOL.

  • Winston Smith

    I wonder what Nichols and Burtons speaking fees were for this nonsense?

    Burton annoys me because he defends bloated taxpayer contributions for Public Television because he gets some of it for doing that Reading Rainbow kids show. Why dont they sell advertising like everyone else and use some of the profits from selling licensed toys to fund these shows. And liberals should step up and donate $1 billion or 2 as well. They claim they want to pay more in taxes.

  • Winston Smith

    Oh wait, just found out they cancelled Reading Rainbow in 1996. No wonder Burton is going after gigs like this one.LOL

  • Winston Smith

    Correction thats 2006. Its been a long week, Steve McCroskey AIRPLANE: Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines.

    But remember people, we do not have a spending problem in this country, we have a problem with the government not having enough money.

    What does the effeminate, theater clown, LeVar Burton know about Jesus? I’ve never heard him support Jesus or Christianity in any way. I guess that fact that his mother’s maiden name was “Christian” convinced the Pentagon that he was worthy to speak on this subject.

    This is the same Pentagon that would not allow Franklin Graham to speak at the National Day of Prayer service – because they were afraid he would mention Jesus.

    It’s like a self fulfilling propohesy
    All wealth will eventually flow from DC
    But first all wealth must be transferred to it.

    But if this program is cut, how will the American people “pay for it?” (/sarc)

  • DMIS

    Actually it’s more a question of whether people like you folk will go postal if evidence of any alien civilization is found and run around randomly killing people because “there is no god, so there’s no morality anyway!”

    Moonbattery,

    Winston’s comments are the EXACT reason I have to hold my nose when I vote Republican. (Other than voting for a few independents and libertarians I have always voted for Republicans since 1994)

    Your reader thinks that if Alien life is found it will most likely be demonic. That is perhaps one of the most batshit crazy things I have ever heard. The total lack of critical thinking involved in making such a statement is downright scary.

    Moonbattery, perhaps you do not care and are just as fundamentalist christian as Winston, but how do you think comments like his make Atheist Conservatives look at the GOP?

    Yes spending tax dollars on this Pentagon nonsense is an abhorrent waste of time, manpower, and taxes, and the idea is crazy. Yet the comments here are just as crazy IMO.

    What happened to $450.00 Hammers and $650.00 Airplane Commode Seats? Seems the cost has Gone down!

    Area 51 pretty much closed down. Dont need the funding anymore.

    Illustrations of aliens and UFOs go back further then pictures of angels and the idea of a Satan.

    How is finding alien life make God not exist?

    And Jesus did not die for Klingons. They have their own messianic figure.

    So much for the GOP big tent theory
    Personally I will take freedom of expression any day, as long as it comes with economic freedom.

    The dolts could try reading the Bible to see if their questions are answered. But I guess that would be against liberal ‘law’. One can’t even possess a Bible in a government office lest they be fired, fined, ridiculed, and crucified.

    The words of Christ are so simple a child can understand. But then liberals favorite pastime is murdering children. Must be because they can’t take the superior intellectual challenge a child offers.

    It’s past time to revolt.

    Even if there are sentient extraterrestrials, the limitations of the speed of light mean that we are extremely unlikely to discover them while they are still alive, and if we do discover them, any information we gather will be anywhere from years to millenia out of date.

    Our galaxy is 100,000 light years in diameter, give or take a few thousand. Now, we’re not out on the edge, so there aren’t any parts actually 100,000 light years away from us, but we’re not right in the middle either so there are some that are more than 50,000. And that’s just inside our own galaxy.

    For reference, a hypothetical alien civilization 100 light years from us would just be finding out about World War I two years from now, assuming they could detect us at all. A hypothetical civilization 50 light years out would just now be tuning in to the Apollo program (though unfortunately, on that front their information would not be out of date at all).

    Are there other civilizations? Given the size of our universe, probably. But unless our civilization manages to survive for another 50,000 years or so, the limits of light speed mean that we will never discover them. And unless they survive for more than 50,000 years, they will be long dead when we do.

    Looking at the picture I’d say that is one of Mooshells more attractive wigs.

    The Vatican debated this not long back and answered the question in the affirmative. But that’s gummint for you… reinvent the wheel in a much pricier version. Someone in the Pentagon can’t figure out Google, I guess.

  • James McEnanly

    This sounds more like a late night discussion at the Vatican observatory, or among NASA’s chaplains. Why the military should be spending money to investigate.
