Possessed is an unknown quantity at this point

3. The suffering of others on Earth does not preclude our initiative and aspiration. It is our biological imperative to do what is necessary to keep our species going, and nothing will make that more likely than unlocking interplanetary and interstellar travel and colonization.

4. We haven't gone back to the Moon for a lot of reasons (fiscal, primarily), none of which was "it's pointless". The Moon is covered in Helium-3, while it's rare on Earth. It's packed with energy that would have likely been utilized as an energy source here if we'd continued research it. Lack of foresight and wisdom, like what you display here, can be blamed.

5. You cannot say that the technologies developed by NASA and derived from their research would have happened anyway. Who knows where we would be if we never started the space program.

Something tells me there's some fatalistic fundamentalism underscoring your perspective.
Lol... garbage.

The moon is packed with a potential energy source, but we just didn't pursue it because of fiscal reasons.

Pretty shows how stupid the rest of your speel is lol.
