    Study reveals map of moon's water near its south pole

    I'm getting tired of this shit:

    As NASA prepares to send astronauts back to the moon under Artemis, the agency has identified 13 candidate landing regions near the lunar south pole. Through Artemis, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the moon, and lunar water could be a critical resource for establishing a long-term human presence.

    "With this map of SOFIA data, and others to come, we are looking at how water is concentrated under different lunar environmental conditions," said Casey Honniball, a visiting assistant research scientist and VIPER science team member at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, in Greenbelt, Maryland, who was involved in the work. "This map will provide valuable information for the Artemis program on potential prospecting areas but also provides regional context for future science missions, like VIPER."
    This is, of course, relevant since women and People of Color use so much more water than other humans, and if after our 50-year absence NASA decides that going back to the fucking moon must be accomplished so that women and POC have an opportunity to use water on the moon -- an opportunity that has been denied them for too long by the systemic racism evident in everything NASA does -- we have to find enough water for them to properly wash their hair and boil collard greens and all the other shit that women and People Of Color do, while they are on the fucking moon. Omitted from this important story is the gender and race of Casey Honniball, probably because Dr. Honniball is not a woman-identifying POC. NASA -- the systemic racism must be dealt with.

    I think in practical terms, religion is more integral to the function of civilization than to the function of individual psychology. Time-established Religion provides the masses with the best, and maybe only, means of effectively defying human authority. When a civilization has paired with a religion over time, the religion becomes the civilization's firewall. It says in absolute terms "this far, and no farther". It inherently has boundaries that even a king cannot openly cross, much less more novel authorities. The civilization can only be radically changed if the firewall is neutralized, which is why all the different groups of Marxists who have subverted the West always aimed their first attacks on Christianity. When the firewall is gone, you can even say 2+2=1 and get away with it.

    The masses will never have any interest in philosophy, so that isn't even an option. The masses can be godless but they can't be atheists. It takes an IQ above the average to even be interested in such ideas. Because of this, all civilizations require some type of unifying propaganda. A healthy civilization will have one that educates (old sense of the word), edifies, and animates them. That has historically been the role of religion. When it does its job, a society can never become as suicidal and demoralized as we have. Of course, this also means that when the established "propaganda" system is torn down, another must replace it if things are to start functioning again. And that's what we've seen in the new religion being forced upon the West: WWII is the creation myth, climate change is the eschatology, sacrificing fuel usage and access to food is penance, and Whiteness is original sin (this is also near proof that our new religion is not natively European, and is likely genocidal in the long run). Really, it's more like a lazy, spiteful caricature of Christianity than a new religion. But the most important thing that sets the new religion apart from the others is that it hasn't been voted on through a selection process spanning generations. It's a novel, test-tube mutant, artificially created by what are probably the most mal-educated crop of elites in the history of Western civilization. An uninspiring, unpoetic, idiotic monstrosity that is destined to fail very quickly in the grand scheme of things.

    The Artemis mission so far has been a failure. Old NASA got to the moon using handheld calculators. Woke NASA canít get out of itís own way.

    I really canít follow what you have written, which is on me, but at face value, religion seems as evil as anything organized we are experiencing today. I find the parallels uncanny.

    For believers in Christ these happenings in the world should come to no surprise. We know that the world system eventually leads to as in the mark of the beast and eventually Christ's reign for 1000 years. We just don't fully know when these future events will occur but they will and they are being unveiled right before our eyes one day at a time.

    In the meantime, could he maybe do something about the FBI?

    I was just having a discussion the other today about how, in my opinion, Helena convincing Constantine to force Rome to adopt Christianity was the major turning point for Abrahamic thought to infect European peoples. It still blows my mind that people of European descent worship the god of Israel, despite having access to at least some knowledge about the belief systems of their pre-Christian ancestors.
