youtube for the day/ best mars history video I've seen

Just a farely good science video of Mars.  It even admits it's theory of Mars magnetic field getting erased due to an asteroid may be false!


I posted below about how the Greeks went the wrong way mathematicaly by geometrizing everything.  Here, with Mars, we see another example - is the finding of life the real reason to go to Mars?  See, people are disappointed that people like the President of the United States has cut mars missions because we could use that money better somewhere else.  They're saying that we need to find life on mars to support human settlement of space.  Does this make sense?  This is much like the debate one whether to go to space with robots and keep everyone here on earth, or do we actually settle humans; and, this is similar to the Greeks choice of geometrizing algebra and getting stuck intellectually, spiritually, and end up having irrationalist argue against real intellectual activity of doing science and mathematics.  Don't think so?  Here's just one example I found recently!

"4:16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
4:17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,
4:18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven."  Dueteronomy chapter 4;

Further on we see those who wrote the old testament say that God is a jealous god.
