I have warned for years about the Martian menace and the lack of preparations of anti-Martian devices. Now the Martians are throwing rocks at us and all we can do is collect them. This is a picture of a Martian meteorite that hit near Foumzgit, Morocco in July 2011 and recovered last month.
The rock was part of a meteorite shower and is only the fifth time scientists have chemically confirmed Martian meteorites. The scientists believe that the 15 pounds of rocks (including one two-pound chunk) was sent hurling toward Earth millions of years ago when something struck the Red Planet. However, since creationism maintains that the Earth is only roughly 6000 years old, that is clearly as wrong as suggesting the Moon does not shine on its own power. As Sherlock Holmes has noted, “once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” The truth is that Martians are throwing rocks at us and our presidential candidates are ignoring or denying reality.
Ok, I saw “Cowboys versus Aliens” last night, but that does not mean that this could not happen. I, for one, am having the kids gather rocks to defend our town . . . at least until the Martians develop a stick with a nail in it.
