It was announced to the world (and reported on in news outlets around the world) that “physicist Stephen Hawking and Russian tech entrepreneur Yuri Milner are pushing the search for extraterrestrial life into higher gear. The pair said Monday the $100 million ‘Breakthrough Initiatives’ program funded by Milner will harness computer power as never before in a search of the heavens.”
The first thing that I predict will happen is that all those non-Christians (and even some Christians) who claim Answers in Genesis should be using the money for the poor when I post articles on our life-size Noah’s Ark construction project will now be making the same comments on all these news sources reporting this—and of course they will also be contacting Stephen Hawking and Yuri Milner to make the same comment. Well . . . maybe that prediction is doomed to failure as I find it’s really the message of the Ark most critics are objecting to—not the money being spent on it! I encourage you to read a list of common questions or criticisms we hear about the Ark project and the answers to them.
Secondly, sometime next month, for the small amount of $7.95 per ticket, you will be able to watch our new spectacular Creation Museum Planetarium program, Aliens: Fact or Fiction? at the Creation Museum, which will address the question of aliens and UFOs in an entertaining way. So for $7.95, you can find the obvious answer that $100 million is being wasted on—all because those involved in this fruitless search for aliens reject the account of origins given to us by the God who created the universe.
You can also get the answer to whether aliens exist for free by reading what I wrote about the aliens topic in a blog post last year.
Do you also notice that when there is talk about aliens in outer space, secularists get giddy with excitement? When we talk about the infinite creator God, secularists mock and scoff and often get angry! Yes, it sure is a spiritual battle!
The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men. (Psalms 115:16)
. . . whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
