AMERICA YOUR “TAX DOLLARS” ENTER THE RELIGIOUS ARENA
NASA apparently granted $1.1 million dollars to CTI (Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey) back in May 2015 to do a study on aliens and how said aliens would have an impact on Christianity per say. Upon reading the “Mission Statement of CTI” I personally would not consider their institution a religious one. Just because a kid goat “voices the sound of a kid ” does not make it a kid (child); I suppose putting the term “Theological” in their name presents itself to be as such. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (seeing CTI as a religious institution) has made a request from NASA’s astrobiology program to withdrawal the $1.1 Million dollar grant since the researchis “an interdisciplinary inquiry on the societal implications of astrobiology, the study of the origins, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe.”
The FFRF Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel wrote to NASA making this request. (Click on FFRF “writes NASA officials” link on their site) Though I do not view CTI as a religious institution others have a different view point; mine is the fact that “taxpayers” dollars are being used for such nonsensical research. NASA is already underfunded as are our troops and frigging $$ are “again” being wasted as the Americans are struggling to get by to provide for our own families. Below are are two articles that cover the story.
