    Just stubble over this one from Tenacious D... where they are fighting the devil. That is a classic :D



    For those that just want to hear all the songs:

    I find we are to put up a hard fight for the faith, but that is a 'spiritual fight' to beat the devil and Not physical.
    As James 4:8 says: draw close to God and He will draw close to you.
    God is only a prayer away - Acts of the Apostles 17:27.
    So, by prayer, systematic study of Scripture, and wholesome association we draw close to God and that is how we can beat the devil.

    If Satan, who is a powerful destructive force, has indeed been cast down to Earth, then the survival of our species may depend on us humans being an interplanetary species living far beyond Satan's realm of destruction and influence over Earth.

    Parts of the heavens are indeed there for us humans to transform into biospheres sustaining human life. Mars is likely the first place beyond Earth in our solar system to get a man-made biosphere that is an appreciable fraction in size comparable to Earth's biosphere. [​IMG]

    The first step towards the terraforming of Mars is the deployment of a magnetic shield that protects Mars against the solar wind stripping of its atmosphere. This magnetic shielding would subsequently allow the planet's atmosphere to reacquire its former density that'd be high enough to allow for sustainable surface liquid water.

    [​IMG]


    An effective artificial magnetosphere placed at Langrangian point 1 from Mars is very achievable with foreseeable technology. This magnetic shielding apparatus could weigh less than a few hundred tonnes which is within the load capacity of a big Falcon 9 rocket. I'm guessing the cost of protecting the Martian atmosphere with an artificial magnetosphere would probably be similar to the cost of a small nuclear reactor.

    Greenhouse gas emissions and global warming is something we humans do very well. Global warming is bad for most life and people on Earth, but global warming is what Mars needs for it to become a place for people to live .

    Some few billion tonnes of sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF6) could increase Martian atmospheric surface temperatures by over 20 degrees Celsius. Sulfur hexafluoride - Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The SpaceX interplanetary transport system could deliver this super greenhouse gas to Mars at a cost of less than $2,000/kg.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpaceX_Mar...astructure

    A few hundred thousand tonnes of SF6 delivered annually to Mars would cost just approximately $1/2 trillion yearly. This is less than a fraction of a percent of the global economic output value. An accumulation of a few billion tonnes of SF6 at an annual rate of a few hundred thousand tonnes would take less than a few thousand years. The annual cost of less than $100 per person per year on Earth would be totally worth transforming Mars into a world with triple its current atmospheric pressure and a warmer Mars with average surface temperatures greater than typical summer Antarctic temperatures.

    If humans can successfully colonize Mars, then Satan's destructive influence would be left far behind on Earth where it'd then be inconsequential to those people who'd be living on Mars. Right?

    Less than $100/person/year is worth the price for colonizing Mars where Martian colonists will have escaped the evil temptations of Satan who'd be left far behind on Earth.

    Satan (Adam) has been reincarnated and he is the father of the Messiah. He is responsible for the "crucifixion" 50 years ago and he will be tortured and executed by the Messiah for it. Job 20:25. "It is drawn, and cometh out of the body; yea the glittering sword cometh out of his gall: terrors are upon him". Isaiah 27:1. "In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea".

    Great. Now I’m going to be humming the tune to “Tribute” for the rest of day.
