NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim WorldWhat in the world is this man talking about? Our interactions with the Muslim world has absolutely no bearing on space exploration. I can't think of two things more wholly unrelated. But it gets better:
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his "foremost" mission as the head of America's space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.
Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA's orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.
"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering,"Bolden said in the interview.I grow so weary of hearing about their "historic contributions" to math and science; their development as a society literally stopped centuries ago. They are the equivalent of a lunatic street person continually reminding everyone that he one first prize at the High School Science Fair in 1970.
Not content with mere civilizational stagnation, over the past 35 years, they have actually pursued a course of devolution, thus embracing and codifying ancient barbarism and rejecting modernity.
The problem is not that they don't feel good about themselves, the problem is that they have adopted a theopolitical ideology which has a central goal; imposation of global Muslim law.
Did 9/11 teach us nothing?
