Are you kidding me?

So, if you were to have open heart surgery, would you want a doctor straight out of their residency?

If you were taking a trip to Europe, would you want your pilot to be fresh out of flight school?

If you were voting to elect the President of the most powerful nation on earth, would you choose a one-term junior Senator?

Someone please tell why is this man such a media sensation?

"What, me worry?"

A lesson in humility for all mankind...

One day, humanity will have increased the level of the technology in deep space imaging and reveal an image like this one:

Somewhere, off in the distant reaches of space, humanity will get a glimpse of life beyond our solar system; perhaps as this picture shows, this life will be intelligent. Signs of some sort of cities, populated by an unknown race of beings.

Then, humanity will realize that we are not alone, nor are we necessarily unique in the universe. Possible or impossible? Maybe we'll find out soon enough!

Forwarding God's email...

Do you ever get an email with one of these ending paragraphs?

"God has seen you struggling, God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God, please send to ten people (including me) please don't ignore this."

There are galaxies colliding out in space and stars are in danger of colliding. There's an entire universe working and moving and spinning, stars being born and burning out. Then, of course, on Earth, there's floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and an extremely prideful arrogant creation beating itself up. There's a lot of stuff going on that probably requires God's attention, more than any stupid email campaign.

I'm sorry, I'm just not going to forward any of this junk and increase God's workload!
