"We're All Alone and We Ain't Gonna Colonize the Universe"

Mark Shea discusses "an articulate defense" of the above "that throws a much needed bucket of cold water in the face of the Rampant Secularist Eschatology that vaunts itself in the face of actual Christian eschatology" — Yesssss!

"ET will not be phoning home," he writes. "We will not form a Federation with the Vulcans. No octopoid Enemy will menace us from the stars. And if we get a toehold on the Moon or Mars, we'll have exhausted our colonizing capabilities off-world."

Very good post by Shea -- great work linking to it and bringing it to our attention.

I'm an agnostic when it comes to whether there is other life in the universe, but it seems to me that the evidence is pointing to the fact that the universe, if not empty of other life, is a pretty cold and barren place. If there is other life elsewhere, it is sparse. At least that's what it looks like given what we know now.

Then it is our obligation to conquer and colonize the Cosmos for the Savior. No matter how long it takes.
