SETI Researcher Joins NG Imagination Fest
Space.Com writer Tariq Malik reviewed the National Geographic TV series Extraterrestrial that envisions flying whales, giraffe-like predators and flesh-eating tadpoles on a mythical world undergoing its own evolution. “Using computer models and armed with basic evolutionary theory, the scientists imagined not only what conditions might exist on their theoretical planets,” writes Malik, “but also how life may interact with the environment to form a thriving ecosystem.” (emphasis added). SETI researcher Seth Shostak told Space.com he joined the project because “Here was a plan to make aliens that make sense.”
What the Darwinists lack in data, they make up for in imagination. That makes sense, all right – financially. It explains why the Darwinists argue that teaching evolution is good for the economy (see 04/29/2005 entry). It provides jobs for animators and other imagineers. Malik wins the Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week: “Eyes, for example, have evolved several times on Earth and are likely to pop up on other light-filled worlds, researchers said.” Apparently, this crowd believes in Popeye as well as Tinkerbell (see 03/11/2005 commentary).
The sad result of decades of evolutionary indoctrination by movie animators is revealed by Malik’s last line: “A National Geographic-commissioned telephone survey of 1,000 Americans found that 60 percent believe life exists on other worlds. About 90 percent of those who believe in extraterrestrial life thought the Earth should respond to any communications emanating from an alien planet.” Yet these true believers usually refuse to listen to or respond to the only Being who is communicating, and has communicated since the beginning (see Hebrews 1). Only the technology of deception has changed since 700 BC. Read it and weep: Isaiah 30, especially verse 10.
