Letter to the Editor
On this Jewish holiday of Passover we are reminded of a story about God killing the first born sons of the Egyptians for failing to do what he wanted. But in real life some 65 million years ago Darwin smited the dinosaurs out of existence for failing to develop asteroid deflection technology. Last month an asteroid passed close to Earth and a large meteor exploded over Russia. What does this all mean? I think Darwin is tapping us on the shoulder asking “How’s that space program coming?” If we cut funding for NASA Darwin might reach out and strike us down the way he did the dinosaurs.
