It takes us six years to get a glorified tin can into orbit around the planet Mercury.
Yet, in the entire history of the human race we cannot develop the will to keep our children from starving to death or to provide them with clean drinking water or mosquito nets to prevent malaria or to vaccinate them from disease.
THAT would cost too much!
Just watch! In a few weeks there's going to be a headline getting the atheists all excited:
"NASA thinks they've found traces of water on Mercury and that means that in all likelihood, life has evolved there."
