Just realized that probably within our lifetimes there will be a Bishop of Mars, and the Eucharist will be offered on the red planet. Thoughts?
Just realized that probably within our lifetimes there will be a Bishop of Mars...
There was a long expanding brain meme which ended up with Orthodox declaring that since Paul (or Andrew, I don't remember exactly) went to the heavens, it means that apostles have been in space thus patriarchate of Mars should be established.
Also Orthodox and Catholics stating that 40k fluff was part of the deuterocanon, though that was an edit of the original meme I believe
Papism will die before 2030 so no
based and Christpilled
he thinks there's planets
Fu€k off immediately
We will never leave Earth.
And we will definitely never leave the solar system.
It's not that shocking.
The russian part of the ISS is full of icons, there was a catholic relic on the Moon(or the ISS, can't remember), and Buzz Aldrin secretly took Communion when he went on his little trip to our satellite.
The relic was orthodox, not catholic.
And also catholics took communion in space:
Also, there's a small debate, mostly for kicks, in catholicism under who's direct jurisdiction the Moon falls.
I believe it was an Orthodox relic belonging to Alexander Nevsky
Good. Of course you can't escape the sin of man, but having something like an interplanetary Benedict option open is definitely positive.
Neat, is there any theological issue which could go against this idea?
We will never make it to Mars. The biggest problem is we don't have any sort of fuel efficient enough for a return trip.
Same was said about almost every concept, like flight. If we don't have means right now doesn't mean that we won't have it later.
No. At best it could be some dispute regarding the administration of the planet and what do should it have.
Nobody is going to Mars space travel is fake as shit.
denying space travel in the current year
Don't need fuel for a return trip if you're never coming back.
You just hate white accomplishments.
NASA is part of the deep state.
2000 years of unbroken tradition will break within our lifetimes
Low effort bait
Muh deep state
The first man on the moon was an American white flown there worth German rocket science. Cry more, cry harder.
I'm skeptical there will be any permanent settlement on Mars during our lifetime.
They could put people into the stratosphere but if they actually tried to go into "space" the rocket would hit the dome of the firmament and explode.
When we colonize mars, will fundamentalists claim it's all a spook?
I think Bishop of Cydonia has a better ring to it. To hell with Mars.
PRAISE BE TO CHRIST, HOLY LORD OF ALL CELESTIAL BODIES
mfw the "Rome is home!" argument collapses due to earth not being hospitable to life anymore.
I doubt colonization of Mars will begin in our lifetimes. The Moon? Maybe. But Mars is still a ways away.
We can't even get to the moon. Apparently the dog ate all the technology and we forgot how to leave low Earth orbit.
We can't even get to the moon.
We didn't want to get to the moon anymore.
Apparently the dog ate all the technology and we forgot how to leave low Earth orbit.
We had no reason to, once the international dick-measuring contest called the Cold War ended.
We were chill with renting Russian rockets to get into space, and sending a probe to somewhere once every couple of years.
Now that the Chinese now have space aspirations(including a moon base), everyone is suddenly back into wanting to explore the final frontier.
Mars is a meme. its low gravity and lack of magnetosphere basically preclude long-term settlement. I'm sure there will be mining and research stations on Mars, but it's more likely that space colonization will happen via large rotating space stations (with centrifugal force taking the place of gravity).
in any case, expanding into space will affect all facets of society, including religion.
