            Didn’t Venus get colonized in Wolfenstein 2?

                  Dumbest idea since the 'colonize mars' idea..

                        Man, we better check with the natives first. We've already made that mistake before.

                            Why do American presenters in these videos, think talking faster means more efficient communication? It doesn't lend to better understanding of said communication..and it's makes them seem drugged up and jittery.

                              You guys can't live on the moon much less mars or Venus


                              The
                              only way for me to help is to inform people of this statement. Those interested
                              in the signs of the end times often take note of a warning THE GREAT FALLING AWAY SPOKEN OF IN THE
                              BIBLE





                              given by Paul to the
                              Thessalonians, speaking about the return of Jesus Christ to earth. He writes,
                              “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the
                              falling away comes first (2 Thessalonians 2:3). He then proceeds to explain
                              this “falling away” in greater detail.







                              Paul writes that it
                              will involve the revealing of “the man of sin…the son of perdition, who opposes
                              and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that
                              he sits Thessalonians 2:3-4). Some man is going to style himself as greater
                              than God, as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2
                              pretending to be God—and people will believe him.





                              Why? Because: HE IS
                              THE GREATEST DECEIVER EVER. HE WILL COME TO EARTH AS AN ALIEN AND MAKE US
                              BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE HIS DNA AND THAT WE ALL COME FROM IT. THE SEED OF CAINE SO
                              TO SPEAK. YES FOR THOSE OF YOU OLD ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND CAINE IS THE DEVILS
                              SEED. THE GREAT FALLING AWAY WILL OCURE, MOSTLY BY SO CALLED BELIEVERS THAT
                              NEVER REALLY DID. BUT HE WILL ALSO DECEIVE THE GREAT AND MIGHTY. THEY ACTUALLY

                                      We should try to spend some money fixing up shithole earth first. Of course then colonize one of the starts in the Big Dipper. 🤣🤣😂 it’s just about as plausible.

                                                We need some sort of return on investment at various stages in the space exploration process. We need benefits that aren't on a geological timescale. No one cares about space exploration because it's not going to get them or their kids into space. It'll be their great great grandkids or later. Moving a million people to a Venusian cloud city or the Martian surface is going to be ruinous if we still have to support 1M people from Earth with nothing coming back.

                                                      colonizing any planet means submitting the colony to whims and mercy(or often lack thereof) of a planets environment, if you already have to do work to stay in a given environment then better to build massive colony stations where gravity can be induced to whatever desired level via spin and weather can be reasonably controlled and the risk of natural disasters reduces to 'the occasional rock and ionized atom' on the scale necessary for a colony to thrive all but an instantly destructive failure would be easily managed and dozens of such colonies would minimize the risk of whole system failure due to single point problem like viral contagion or pestilence. leave planets as preserves for exploration and research and build stations for the masses

See why they are more interested on mars because our sun getting bigger look now what happen to earth lol

I miss the olden days when only sci-fi writers blabbered about such issues as colonization of other planets. Back in the 1960s it was understandable. Now that the earth is headed for an environmental disaster in the observable future it is just idiotic to even consider these ideas. If you can't help yourselves destroying a perfectly livable planet what is the point of wasting all this effort on the unlivable ones? This is just beyond me.

Do You Understand That we are considered By the ALIENS To Be An EGG ? A ROTTEN EGG ! Aliens have evolved over millions of YEARS! They have OVERCOME HUNGER , WAR, AND POVERTY WHICH ALLOWED THEM TO PROGRESS !!! That’s why they SCREAM ACROSS OUR SKYS AND HAVENT LANDED ! ITS Because they want to see if we’ve KILLED Each Other YET ? SO THAT THEY CAN START ALL OVER AGAIN ! LIKE THEYVE DONE MANY TIMES BEFORE !!!! WE ARE PLACED AT THE ARSE END OF THE UNIVERSE FOR A REASON ? THE HUMAN RACE IS CORRUPT ! WE HAVENT EVEN GONE TO THE MOON YET ? Its all BULLSHIT !!!!! GO SEE ELON MUSK , HE WILL PUT YOU IN A TESLA AND SEND YOU TOWARDS THE SUN , LIKE HE DID TO HIS FATHER !!!!
