Space program should end because aliens are going to hell anyway
“I’m shocked at the countless hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent over the years in the desperate and fruitless search for extraterrestrial life,” Ham wrote in a Sunday column on his Answers in Genesis website.
Ham argued that “secularists are desperate to find life in outer space” as a part of their “rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution.”
“Life did not evolve but was specially created by God, as Genesis clearly teaches. Christians certainly shouldn’t expect alien life to be cropping up across the universe,” he continued. “Now the Bible doesn’t say whether there is or is not animal or plant life in outer space. I certainly suspect not.”
But regardless of whether there was life in outer space, Ham asserted that it could not be truly “intelligent.”
“You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation,” he explained. “Jesus did not become the ‘GodKlingon’ or the ‘GodMartian’! Only descendants of Adam can be saved. God’s Son remains the ‘Godman’ as our Savior.”
Friendly Atheist blogger Hemant Mehta called Ham’s quest to end the space program “a new low even for him.”
“Jesus Christ, Ken Ham is talking about the eternal damnation of alien life forms,” Mehta wrote. “They’re all going to hell, apparently, and why go in search of life on other planets if they’re all doomed to a lake of fire?”
“To whine about the pittance we spend on space exploration because ‘Christians certainly shouldn’t expect alien life to be cropping up across the universe’ has to be a new low even for him.”

You misunderstand me mediasorcery, i am not attacking religion, it is not 'evil' to have an opinion as long as it does not contain or justify evil, the world would be very boring if we all thought the same thing.
The content of those opinions, however, can be subject to taint by 'evil' or wrongdoing on some level.
This man has not done a very good job of weeding out the evil from his beliefs, he is essentially being racist behind a religious shield.
It is hate preachers like this that start extremist groups or cults, if he was a Muslim he would be in Guantanamo, this guy varies only in actions from some Jihad guy, his philosophical justification for his extremist opinions hold about the same weight.
So moving on to all those millions of people who pay taxes like you that support NASA but do not believe in the same god as you, maybe one that does not discriminate race, or none at all?!
Should their voices be forgotten because you think you have it all figured out?
And assuming you are familiar with exponential growth what do you suggest is the future of our race if not to expand into space and surrounding habitable areas?
The only alternative is happening in Israel right now, i.e. genocide
It is a display of limited foresight to try to boycott the space program

It is pointless even trying to talk to someone with such a closed mind
What a redundant and twisted logic he has applied to this
Shame on him for his ignorance
