Is another Space Race needed?

The world needs another Space Race, for that matter. But what is there to race for? The original Space Race (SR) was a race between the Soviets and the Americans, and the finish line was space. And later, that became Luna, the moon. And now, we have really nothing to reach for.

Maybe Mars, but honestly, what good would that do? It's a most likely lifeless planet. But if that would help fuel another SR, then maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing.

The reason I think another SR is necessary is that the SR revolutionized technology as we know it. It sped up technology, and nearly every technology we use today was the result of the Americans trying to outdo the Soviets and whatnot.

If another SR happened, which this time I assume would be against China, think of all the things that we could accomplish. We could cure cancer. We could develop FTL travel. We could find what every human has thought about at one point or another, and what every human being wishes we would find: extra-terrestrial life.

What are your thoughts?

My thoughts on gay marriage.

I think that we can all agree that the biggest controversy these days is whether homosexuals should be allowed to marry. Religious groups, mostly Christians, for some reason want it to be banned and think that gay people should be punished.

Christians, why? Gay people do not choose to be gay. Did you choose to be attracted to the opposite sex? No! Did you choose to be attracted to red hair or short girls or a certain race of girls? No! It's the same thing with gay people. They are born with their preference, just like you were born with your preferences.

But how does it affect you? If two guys get married, how is that honestly going to have any impact on your life? It has no effect on your life. 

And really, if God is real and doesn't accept gays (which is paradoxical, I'll talk about that in another post), then do you think he's actually going to let them into Heaven? No! 

It effects you none at all. Stop caring so much about how we're finally becoming an equal nation.

Sincerely, a straight guy.
