Professor Stephen Hawking, one of the famous scientists many are trusting in for guidance to their chosen eternal abode (i.e. nowhere) recently stated that Trump, by rejecting the Paris accords on climate change, is single-handedly likely to turn earth into another Venus, “…with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees (Celcius) and raining sulphuric acid” (NOTE 1).

The great prof has also made it clear repeatedly that mankind must leave earth very soon in order to survive the cataclysm about to overtake us. Probably only those genetically perfect specimens would be included. That excludes him…and me. Hmm, it’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine…

My God already has a plan to put our world right, but the prof. isn’t interested: see Revelation for details.

One of the ironies of all this is that this very day Mike Pence, fulfilling Trump’s executive order made a few days ago, reopened the National Space Council, abolished in 1993. Acting NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot stated:

“The establishment of the council is another demonstration of the Trump Administration’s deep interest in our work, and a testament to the importance of space exploration to our economy, our nation, and the planet as a whole” (2).

Pence declared that the intention to re-create the council is space exploration:

“Here, from this bridge to space, our nation will return to the moon, and we will put American boots on the face of Mars,” Pence said.

“Today, I come to assure you, the men and women of NASA, and all those at this gateway to the stars, where the aspirations of the American people have taken flight, that under President Donald Trump, America will lead in space once again,” he said (3).

Just as many had become convinced-and still are-that Trump was going to start a nuclear war (but not before slaughtering all colored people, women, Muslims and gays, and not before banning all immigration) so many are also convinced that if we don’t give our liberal politicians and their chosen scientists all our money, and if we don’t stop breathing and breeding, and if we don’t stop eating, we’re going to all be fried-or drowned-within a century. Dissenters, including many scientists, are shut out of the discussion, ignored and labelled “flat-earthers” and far worse-in the usual “tolerant”, loving, inclusive manner of today’s extreme liberals and socialists. Only they are intelligent, intellectual, educated, caring and level-headed. They hate (verb intended) the rest of us-ignorant, gross, crass, white stupid Trump-voters that we are. Anyway, I think I have the perfect solution to all our differences.

The solution was first noted in a spoof science-fiction novel called “The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, written by Brit. Douglas Adams. His intention was not to sort out liberal-conservative issues, or any political issue, because he wrote in the good old days when literature could be non-political, and we could all just have a laugh without the need for sarcasm, slander and hatred.

In Adam’s novel there existed a planet called Golgafrincham, where some decided it was time to get rid of a third of the population who had proven to be totally non-productive and obnoxious. So they concocted a story that the planet would shortly be destroyed in a great catastrophe, and they planned a planet-wide evacuation in three space-ships. The non-productive third of the population were to “go on ahead” in the first of the three ships. In reality, the other two-thirds of the people stayed behind and enjoyed a quiet, productive life without the leeches.

By now you may know where I’m going with this. Perhaps (and Trump may well be one step ahead of us all-he may have read the book)…perhaps we could similarly “send ahead” those convinced that we’re going to fry, and those misleading the population with tales of evolution from nothing to nothing and earth turning into Venus, and all the politicians who want us to hand over our money and our food and our vehicles, to Mars, or any destination of their liking. I’ll stay here.
