Yes, I think I do. It's just that I feel that it's sacrelige of the highest possible order imaginable. I can't see how knowing what the rocks on Mars are composed of, or how much Jupiter weights is of any relevance to our lives, but knowing how these wandering stars appear to be behaving in the sky from our perspective down here most certainly is.
We get ignorant, foolish skeptics who are supposed to be intelligent saying things like 'Venus is supposed to represent things like sweetness and beauty to these stupid astrologers...ha ha...that's because in times of old they were so stupid that they didn't even realise that Venus is covered in constantly active, enormous volcanoes and it rains sulphuric acid'. So what? That makes absolutely no difference what so ever, because from our perspective from here on earth
, Venus is
sweet and beautiful, and that's all that matters, that is all we are meant to know about her.
Anyone who has any doubt that this earth was intricately positioned where it is especially to play host to the life that was designed for it, had better come up with a reasonable explanation as to why it is that the Sun and Moon, while of massively different geographical proportions and mathematical distances, should just so happen
to appear to be precisely
the same size, from our perspective here on earth, making an perfect eclipse possible. Coincidence? Oh please! How much more evidence do we need that they are a timing device, and *** only knows what else, that were intricately positioned that way by some intellect that we cannot comprehend.
*** knows, we've already raped and mutilated this planet of ours where we were designed to be as it is, *** forbid we should ever move on to plague other worlds. :? Thank *** I will never see it in my lifetime.
It would be considered an outrage to be dismantling mosques or temples in the name of scientific analysis, and yet it's okay to consider trampling all over the Moon and other planets, which are yet infinately more precious, out of nothing other than childish curiosity, regardless of the most ancient faiths or to astrologers to whom these things are sacrosanct in the utmost.
The woodlands and the forests were once sacred, look what happened to them. :cry: If the manifestations of The Divine which are the stars and planets should be subject to such abuse, I cannot think of any one thing more heart breaking.
Our skies have already been defiled from our perspective down here. Probably the great majority of souls in this world today do not even recognise the most obvious constellations, nor are able to tell the difference between a star and a planet when they see it. This is a lamentable tragedy. Light pollution in our towns and cities comes to blind us more and more to the indescribable majesty of the night sky, and so our divorce from The Divine and our descent into Hell continues. This is bad enough without building cities on poor old Luna's back.
I'm not against finding out more about these the stars and planets, like getting a good look at them close, if they really feel the need to titalate themselves with such practically useless information. I am very much against them going and leaving footprints all over our pure, sacred, undefiled Luna, and as for taking 'civilisation' further afield, I cannot torture myself to even think about that.
There was a poem I remember reading in my teens called, 'The day They Turned the Moon Into a Coca-Cola Sign', and I have never forgotten the profound misery of that piece of writing. Unfortunately I cannot find the poem, but I will continue to search and eventually post it forward, to be considered in light of this thread.
If it was possible do you not think the Coca Cola corporation, if they could, would not turn the Moon into a neon sign to advertise cola? Of course
they would. Terrifying!!! :x
No matter how depraved humanity becomes down here, no matter how much the manifestation of God Itself which is the earth that plays host to us is mutilated and destroyed, then at least we've always got the perfect heavens to look up to to remind us that God exists. If the heavens and it's precious contents are to succumb to the same fate, then we are left with nothing, we are left abandoned in Hell, with no way out.
