India launches a rocket. Why!?
I seem to have started a wee shit storm at another site about India launching a Mars probe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_Orbiter_Mission
This really bothers me.
I said, in part:
With millions of Indian people starving, scraping in the dirt for food, India spends millions of $$$ to go to a dead planet? If we haven't found any Martians, what makes India think they will? And people are worried about the 23% of Christians in India making inroads into the >75% Hindu population? I just threw up a little in my mouth at the thought of all this.Indian and Hindu sympathies and priorities are grossly misplaced and completely effed up. For all the pissing and moaning everyone does about the corruption in India, somehow the government keeps getting elected in. Not to mention worrying about Big Bad You-Know-Who; maybe the gov't should put the money into educating its own people in their own religion and culture, if not feeding them. I blame the Indian people for their plight... "if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem". The $69 million spent on this project could feed a lot of people.
(the Big Bad You-Know-Who is Jesus, whom Hindus on the internet seem to be terrified of)
