    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Children And The Future

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse

Quoting Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse:

There is no greater statement of hope in the future, than the bringing forth of new life. Our below replacement fertility rate tells the story of people who either don’t believe in the future, or who are unwilling to sacrifice current consumption for the sake of the future. Well-educated, high-income professional couples postpone having children until they can afford a child. This is the richest country the world has ever known, in any terms we would care to measure. How can it be that the wealthiest members of the wealthiest society the world has ever known can’t “afford” to have children? The open secret is that we don’t want to spend the time, money and energy on kids, until we are reasonably sure we will be satisfied with the outcome.

UN To Officially Welcome Extraterrestrial Aliens!

The United Nations has appointed a Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth’s representative to any extraterrestrial visitors who may land on our planet in the future. Dr. Mazlan Othman is the head of the UN’s Office for Outer Space Affairs and will be responsible for coordinating humanity’s response to a close encounter of the third kind.

In the unlikely event that aliens should arrive on our planet, I ask you: Do we really want to be represented by the UN? After all, the UN is one of the most corrupt, ineffective, and inefficient organizations on the planet. If ET did come to visit Earth, would you trust the UN to negotiate with a civilization that would be technologically superior to our own? We have only to look at the history of man to discover how often contact with advanced technological civilizations has ended poorly for the less advanced culture. Would Dr. Othman be meeting with a peaceful, benevolent Vulcan or would she end up as a trophy on the Predator’s wall? Professor Stephen Hawking suggests that first contact with alien visitors would more likely resemble the script of the movie Independence Day.

In any case, this is simply the typical political bureaucracy of the UN supplying Dr. Othman with a title for which she will receive a very large salary (subsidized mostly by the US) to provide an occasional useless report on what an impotent UN should do if confronted with an invasion from Mars. I think this would be an excellent job for Nancy Pelosi who seems to be from another world most of the time anyway.
