Just at the end of the past month, Ghana successfully breached the voids of space by adding its name to the list of countries with a satellites in orbit, a milestone for the country in the front orbital exploration. but come to think of it are we ready to accept the results of our “space poking” and is its bearing on our faith largely. like the old theologians asked the evolutionist what if you found a watch in the sand? i ask same of what will be of our faith , say we find a village of thinking men or aliens or less, a life sustaining planet on any of the planets we are in the rush to discover.
This is no conspiracy or Sci Fi gimmick, there is a satellite up there now, Kepler its called and there have been some before it, and am pretty certain this wouldn’t the last of Man’s inquisition to know where there is any for of life out there.
Its not the Inquisition that scares me, my woe has always been how we handle the outcome, and not too long ago, the world could not handle the controversy when it become bare that Pluto was less of the term “Planet”. A wise saying in a Akan loosely translate “when you poke a corpse eye you will see its ghost” funny some how our eyes have been literally burnt before, by the apollo conjunctivitis only God knows what we could have ended up with.
Speaking on this subject issue with a learned cleric, his quote was that “God entreats men to explore the depths of his creation being the universe and everything within if it is intended to exalt his might”. but the question I ask is, is that reason behind billion dollar expense on our voyage into space. I dare to say “NO”.
