Deep Space Industries' Asteroid Minning & Nimrod's Tower Of Babel Have Something In Common: Both Were Scammers & Pie In The Sky Dreamers
Deep Space Industries
And the earth was of one tongue, and of the same speech. And when they removed from the east, they found a plain in the land of Sennaar, and dwelt in it. And each one said to his neighbour: Come, let us make brick, and bake them with fire. And they had brick instead of stones, and slime instead of mortar. And they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the top whereof may reach to heaven: and let us make our name famous before we be scattered abroad into all lands. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were building. And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed. Come ye, therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they may not understand one another's speech. And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city. And therefore the name thereof was called Babel, because there the language of the whole earth was confounded: and from thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries Gen.viii.i-ix.We are dreamers? Nimrod was a dreamer and a tyrant! Nimrod said that "If you can Dream it, you can Be it." Nimrod said it was our mission to think big and do big things - he built the tower of Babel. Nimrod knew that big dreams are only achievable by taking small steps, with careful planning, hard work and persistence. But in the end Nimrod lost.
Josephus tells us about the pride of Nimrod:
Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it was through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power. He also said he would be revenged on God, if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach! and that he would avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers!Job warns us of folly of pride:
If his pride mount up even to heaven, and his head touch the clouds: In the end he shall be destroyed like a dunghill, and they that has seen him shall say: Where is he?God came down and paid a visit.
Iraq's Three Lakes Is The Remnant Of The 29,000 ft Tower Of Babel
Astronaut Photography of Earth - Display Record STS059-79-72
There are three freshwater lakes in central Iraq near Baghdad, all lined up more or less north to south in the broad river valleys. Buhayrat Ath Tharthar is the largest of the three, but all shrink and expand dramatically with the changing seasons. Buhayrat Ath Tharthar is 48 NM (55 km) northwest of Baghdad between the Euphrates and the Tigris north of where the two rivers get close together. Al Taqaddum, also called Hawr al Habbaniyah, the middle lake, is the smallest of the three. It is 17 NM (31 km) south of Buhayrat Ath Tharthar, just southwest of the town Al Habbanyah, which is due west of Baghdad. The third lake, Bahr al Milh, is 5 NM (9 km) south of Al Taqaddum and just southwest of the Euphrates River. It is slightly smaller than Buhayrat Ath Tharthar and its southern end is west of the town Karbala. NOAA
The above photo of the three lakes in Iraq are the likely remnants of the fallen 29,000 ft tower that Nimrod the tyrant built.
No one has ever found the remnants of the Tower of Babel. The three lakes is a good place to start.
Those three lakes are all that is left of Nimrod's work - just think of all the labor put into building a 29,000 ft tower and that is all they got to show for it - three shallow lakes!
It looks like Deep Space Industries along with all the other modern day space companies and government space agencies took up where Nimrod left off. The pride of modern man is no different than the pride of Nimrod.
Deep Space Industries want to mine asteroids!
It's probably a scam - just like the solar industry. The obvious scam is of course to steal US taxpayer money, pocket it, file bankruptcy and then to live the high life on some beach somewhere.
But first things first. Must have a few like minded men and a web site come up with some crazy idea - the crazier the better.
Mining asteroids is about as crazy as you can get - I'm sure the US government will shell out billions and billions to see this scam bear fruit.
This company must have slogans as well - like the following:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead.How does privately funded Deep Space Industries convince the US government in forking over billions of dollars to DSI?
Scare everyone into believing that an asteroid is a 'comin to smash into the earth and the only company capable of stopping the asteroid threat is the company that already has audacious ideas in place, the only company that claims to operate on a few basic principles that pushes beyond boundaries of traditional "safe" thinking.
The company even has a list of different sized asteroids on its site:
10,000+ Meters: Huge
An Earth impact would be an "Extinction Level Event" Call Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman...."Game over Man!"
3,000+Meters: Very Large
On the verge of being itty bitty semi-planetesimals. If one is coming call your mum,write your will. The last day of life on Earth. An Earth impact would be a major civilization destroying, climate changing and devastating event
Yea.. real cute.
None of the men of Deep Space Industries believe in God. Any time God is found on their lips it is because they are blaspheming or mocking God.
Think about this for a moment. These godless men are in effect blaming God for sending an asteroid or two our way. Always blame God (even if you don't believe in Him) but never, ever blame the actions of men for our misfortune.
Evil godless men do not believe that their selfish actions cause any problems for anyone.
This brings me to point out again of all the shit shot into space. How much shit was sent in to space? Millions and millions of space debris, satellites, rockets, space probes the list goes on and on.
Now, mind you if God was so incensed that Nimrod built a tower that exceed the height reached by Noah's flood, so that Nimrod could escape another flood, what makes any of you think that God will give modern man a pass? Have we not exceeded this 29,051 ft level by millions of miles? Do we not exceed this level everyday with our commercial aircraft? Do you not think that there will be repercussions for our rebellion? We have gotten a free pass when Nimrod didn't?
So when God pays us a visit, just like He did rebellious Nimrod, our tower will be obliterated, our tower will be annihilated - just as Nimrod's tower obliterated and destroyed.
The only problem with us when the shit hits the fan is that all off us will blame either God's creatures such as the asteroids or planets etc.. or we will blame God Himself. None of us will blame ourselves for exceeding the boundaries established by God. None of us will accuse our on pride, none of use will accuse our own sins for the misfortune we find our selves in.
Now, for those who may have never visited this blog, I will post the words of St Thomas Aquinas on the doctrine of the fire of the final conflagration that is to take place at the end of days. In this doctrine St Thomas said that all the works of men must burn up in this fire. This means all the works of men. The fire itself will arise up from the bowels of the earth and will reach a height no greater than the height that the waters of the deluge reached - 29,051 t. Meaning that any space shit shot into space has to be below this level in order for it burn up. Conclusion? All the shit that man shot into space is coming back. All of it.
Get ready for some really scary events. Most space junk will start to fall soon, and there will be nothing any of us can do about it.
Here read the words of St Thomas:
According to St. Thomas Aquinas, the fire of the final conflagration will destroy all the works of men. Every single work by the hand of man will be cleansed by the fire of the final conflagration - St. Thomas Aquinas tells us: "that since the world was, in a way, made for man's sake, it follows that, when man shall be glorified in the body, the other bodies of the world shall also be changed to a better state, so that it is rendered a more fitting place for him and more pleasant to look upon. Now in order that man obtain the glory of the body, it behooves first of all those things to be removed which are opposed to glory. There are two, namely the corruption and stain of sin---because according to 1 Cor. 15:50, "neither shall corruption possess incorruption," and all the unclean shall be without the city of glory (Apoc. 22:15)---and again, the elements require to be cleansed from the contrary dispositions, ere they be brought to the newness of glory, proportionately to what we have said with regard to man. Now although, properly speaking, a corporeal thing cannot be the subject of the stain of sin, nevertheless, on account of sin corporeal things contract a certain unfittingness for being appointed to spiritual purposes; and for this reason we find that places where crimes have been committed are reckoned unfit for the performance of sacred actions therein, unless they be cleansed beforehand. Accordingly that part of the world which is given to our use contracts from men's sins a certain unfitness for being glorified, wherefore in this respect it needs to be cleansed. In like manner with regard to the intervening space, on account of the contact of the elements, there are many corruptions, generations and alterations of the elements, which diminish their purity: wherefore the elements need to be cleansed from these also, so that they be fit to receive the newness of glory."
St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that fire will be the cleansing instrument: "As stated above (A) this cleansing of the world will remove from it the stain contracted from sin, and the impurity resulting from mixture, and will be a disposition to the perfection of glory; and consequently in this threefold respect it will be most fitting for it to be effected by fire. First, because since fire is the most noble of the elements, its natural properties are more like the properties of glory, and this is especially clear in regard to light. Secondly, because fire, on account of the efficacy of its active virtue, is not as susceptible as the other elements to the admixture of a foreign matter. Thirdly, because the sphere of fire is far removed from our abode; nor are we so familiar with the use of fire as with that of earth, water, and air, so that it is not so liable to depreciation. Moreover, it is most efficacious in cleansing and in separating by a process of rarefaction."
St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that this fire will not exceed the bounds which were cleansed by waters of the deluge: "I answer that, Some [*St. Bonaventure, Sentent. iv, D, 47, A, Q] say that the fire in question will rise to the summit of the space containing the four elements: so that the elements would be entirely cleansed both from the stain of sin by which also the higher parts of the elements were infected (as instanced by the smoke of idolatry which stained the higher regions), and again from corruption, since the elements are corruptible in all their parts. But this opinion is opposed to the authority of Scripture, because it is written (2 Pet. 3:7) that those heavens are "kept in store unto fire," which were cleansed by water; and Augustine says (De Civ. Dei xx, 18) that "the same world which perished in the deluge is reserved unto fire." Now it is clear that the waters of the deluge did not rise to the summit of the space occupied by the elements, but only 15 cubits above the mountain tops; and moreover it is known that vapors or any smoke whatever rising from the earth cannot pierce the entire sphere of fire so as to reach its summit; and so the stain of sin did not reach the aforesaid space. Nor can the elements be cleansed from corruptibility by the removal of something that might be consumed by fire: whereas it will be possible for the impurities of the elements arising from their mingling together to be consumed by fire. And these impurities are chiefly round about the earth as far as the middle of the air: wherefore the fire of the final conflagration will cleanse up to that point, since the waters of the deluge rose to a height which can be approximately calculated from the height of the mountains which they surpassed in a fixed measure."
Now it stands to reason that if what St. Thomas Aquinas states is true:
1. that fire of the final conflagration will not exceed the bounds which were cleansed by waters of the deluge (only 15 cubits above the mountain tops)
2. and all of the sinful works of men are to be destroyed in this final conflagration.
Then all of the works of men will one day occupy or reach a height no greater than the 15 cubits above the mountain tops, which was boundary of the waters of the deluge.
What follows then is that all modern man-made works that had left the orbit of the earth such as NASA's Mars Rover Spirit and all other spacecrafts will return to the place in which they were created, which will be below the boundary set by the waters of the deluge and that is 15 cubits above the mountain tops.
Again the Mars Rover Spirit along with all man-made space objects will one day return to the earth.
