I DVR-ed a National Geographic Documentary entitled “Evacuate Earth” and managed to finish watching yesterday. I believe the Documentary is about a year old being made in 2012. The scenario is: What will Earth’s human beings do if scientists detect a neutron star on a collision course to our little blue planet estimating its arrival to be about 80 years?
The reality is there a number of cosmic occurrences that might threaten life on planet earth. Some examples are the existence of large comets and asteroids, black hole formations, our Sun dying and probably other scenarios I can’t think of at the moment including a collision course with a neutron star. I found a concise description of a neutron star and its destructive force at Moon Project:
… Formed by the gravitational collapse of a massive star during a supernova, neutron stars are made almost entirely of neutrons and have a density 500,000 times greater than that of the Earth, all packed into a sphere with a diameter no larger than Brooklyn, New York. The density of such an object is roughly the equivalent of the entire human population crushed down to the size of a sugar cube! Like any star, neutron stars are moving against a backdrop of other cosmic objects and can be detected and tracked here on Earth, So what if we did detect one that was heading straight for us? Would there be anything we could do to divert or destroy it? The short answer?
We can predict how long it will take to reach us and how close it will need to get for its effects to start to be felt but once we know those things, then what? Lets (sic) say we’ve found one that will reach us in 100 years, that means the countdown has begun and we need to start thinking about the logistics of moving 7 billion people from one planet to another. There wont (sic) be time to double-check and triple check that the conditions are perfect on a rocket that has never been designed before using current technology with people who don’t have the best reputation for getting on. Well, good luck to any one (sic) who thinks they can make that happen.

This is probably why National Geographic chose the neutron star scenario for their documentary. Such a collision with Earth would result in the utter destruction of the planet. There is only one possibility for the human race to continue to exist. Existence would depend on evacuating the Earth.
I was so fascinated by the NatGeo Documentary, it went through nearly 80 years of construction of this huge space ship built piece by piece by launching the parts in increments as they were made globally. They counted down to just before the neutron star obliterated the Earth. In the Documentary they showed it was possible to view the neutron star bringing Earth’s demise fracturing the planet into pieces in either disintegration or producing an outer space debris belt.
Imagine that drama from the space ship! The passengers are already aware that the Earth’s billions died horribly prior to the planet fragmentation. Add to that those billions of dead that undoubtedly included family and friends then they viewed the blue ball – their ancestral home – disappear into nothingness. That is a sad drama.
At the end of this post I will post the Youtube version of the entire Documentary of Evacuate Earth. But until some things caught my imagination. Principle of which is the selection process of the minimal minority to be saved dooming the majority billions to a death sentence of nature. The next thought was also very important to me because those thoughts deal with my faith as a Bible believing Christian. Let’s look at the sad near science fiction scenario of a neutron star causing a global effort to save enough of the human race to allow it to perpetuate – somewhere. Then I’ll touch on my Bible faith and a God-breathed scenario.
There are many of us bloggers that see nefarious happenings politically that points to a Left Wing conspiracy to control a New World Order and/or an Islamist Caliphate World Order by Islamic imperialists. I use the “and/or” because there might be a little disagreement about NWO scenario is preeminent or if the Leftists and Islamists are feeding off of each other to destroy the present global order and then the Leftists and Islamists going toe-to-toe on a bloody genocidal scale for victory.
So, what is the effect on these Conspiracy Theories if it is proven a neutron star is what will transform humanity rather than theological/political ideology? My guess is that Muslims devoted to the Quran will put their trust with their demon-deity (yeah I know Leftist Multiculturalists and Muslim Apologists are thinking bigotry rather than comprehending that Bible believers believe Christ is the ONLY WAY to God) Allah to show the neutron star will initiate the global Caliphate age against the kafir (aka infidel). My next guess is that secularist scientists aligned with Leftists will begin a plan build something and anything to allow selected human beings to get out of Dodge before the Earth’s High Noon.
The Muslims might have the money, but the scientific community will have the support of government money, natural resources and great minds used to teaming up for solutions. Not that Muslims don’t have great minds. After all AQ Khan developed nuclear weapons for Pakistan and has leaked nuke info to violent prone Muslim rogue nations. In this modern age most Muslim great minds living in Islamic dominated nations think more about Islamic theopolitical philosophy and weaponization. This is not exactly a team playing combination to save Earth’s brightest and fittest to begin survival and re-population of the human race on an Earth-like planet.
It is my opinion, all political correctness aside, it will be the Western nations, prominent scientists of Israel and Asians representing China, Japan, South Korea and India that will decide the survival of the human race. This leads to another conundrum. Those that select the people to be saved will likely be the scientific community, political powerhouses that are influential on government purse strings and the more intelligent of the rich and famous. There is one thing I can guarantee about such an elitist selection committee the common man that is the backbone of successful economies will not be selected.
This will leave seven or so billion people among divided national borders left to choose how they will deal with such a transition. You do realize the scenario at this point is a Leftist utopian’s dream concerning depopulation to save humanity. Instead of systematically euthanizing hundreds of millions of people to make feeding the people easier and to be easier on planet Earth’s ecosystem, simply leave billions of people behind to die at the hands of a neutron star.
Most people have a natural survival instinct even if they don’t resources. That is why a lot of bloggers believe if an economic collapse occurs followed political chaos in nation-states that every-man-for-himself rioting and violence will be the new lawless social structure. If political chaos predictors are accurate about an economic collapse scenario, just think how things could turn ugly when the global population realizes that there is an Evacuate Earth plan that does not include the general population. I suspect attempts to thwart government control will turn into civil strife, civil war or just downright revolution to change the power structure with no actual end-game in mind if there is success in revolting against current regimes.
The reality is that the political regimes in control will have the military power to suppress and/or contain revolutionary civil strife to territorial areas away from the construction from whence the components for a starship are being built then sent to outer space for assembly. I am willing to bet the power of united elites will hesitate to use armed extreme prejudice to protect the escape plan. Which brings me to another wondering thought. I wonder when the military rank and file will realize that most of them will not be boarding a completely assembled starship to escape death from a neutron star.
This is when a number of lower rank officers will organize against the ruling elites to achieve an inclusion impossibility. I say impossible because this not Noah’s Ark created by the supernatural hand of God. This is a large space Ark that will only so-much room to take what is need to survive an interstellar trip with the uncertain hope of finding a planet to colonize. Unless national military personnel are willing to make a sacrifice for the greater good, I have serious doubts an interstellar spaceship Ark will find completion. The result: the end and extinction of the human race with nothing left to indicate intelligent life existed in portion of the unfathomable cosmos.
And yet with all the scenario guessing the U.S. via the route of government agencies are spending money to develop technology for interstellar travel. America’s most famous super-secret agency – Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) - has been working with NASA in a 100 year program to study and implement space travel.
We exist to make the capability of human travel beyond our solar system a reality within the next 100 years. We unreservedly dedicate ourselves to identifying and pushing the radical leaps in knowledge and technology needed to achieve interstellar flight, while pioneering and transforming breakthrough applications that enhance the quality of life for all on Earth. We actively seek to include the broadest swath of people and human experience in understanding, shaping and implementing this global aspiration.
When we explore space, we garner the greatest benefits here at home. The challenge of traveling to another star system could generate transformative activities, knowledge, and technologies that would dramatically benefit every nation on Earth in the near term and years to come.
Travel to the stars will require: the development of revolutionary non-chemical technologies to generate, harness, control and store enormous quantities of energy safely; radical advancements in closed-loop life-support systems and sustainable habitats; new insights into human development, health, behavior and training; quantum leaps in agriculture, communication and handling massive data sets; advances in robotics, automation, intelligent systems, and manufacturing techniques; as well as deeper, robust understanding and innovative approaches to social structures, education, economics and finance, legal frameworks, politics and international collaboration. … READ ENTIRETY (take the NEXT GIANT LEAP FORWARD; 100 Year Starship)
The BBC has an article about DARPA’s 100 Year Starship program and a principle formulator of the program Dr. Jack Sarfatti:
But the 100YSS is not a fringe activity started by a bunch of dreamers. It has the backing of two high-profile US agencies – the space agency Nasa and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), the US military agency that helped create the internet and satellite-based navigation. Darpa has a track record for these kinds of seemingly impossible technologies: in recent years it has sponsored attempts to develop a hypersonic aircraft and driverless cars.
But even those might pale next to the goal of sending a manned spaceship to the stars. And the agency’s willingness to embrace unconventional ideas and people – like Sarfatti – means the project divides opinion. For its backers it is a visionary blueprint for interstellar travel. For the naysayers, it is a crackpot idea with no hope of even getting off the ground.
For those who might consider a starship something of a pipedream, David Neyland, the head of the Darpa office in charge of the 100YSS, points to the agency’s ability to spur innovation in unexpected areas, an ability that has proven critical to its success. “The iPhone in your pocket is powered by cellular radio technology that came out of communications research Darpa did back in the 70s and 80s,” says Neyland. “So it is that unintended consequence of technology research that we are hoping to inspire.” … READ ENTIRETY (100 Year Starship: An interstellar leap for mankind? By Sharon Weinberger; BBC – FUTURE; 3/22/12)
Although scenario of Earth’s destruction by NatGeo will probably not happen with a pleasant end for humanity, the NatGeo prediction of interstellar travel is actually plausible bringing science fiction into the realm of science fact. This Dr. Sarfatti is actually exploring physics concepts of a Star Trek-like warp drive, once believed outside the realm of reality by serious physicist theorists. The 100 Year Starship project even has the first female astronaut in space heading the project – Mae Jemison. There is another reason that I believe the NatGeo Evacuate Earth scenario will not occur.
Here’s the thing. I have faith in the God of the Holy Bible. God’s plan is to save all humanity from the fate of Satan to be contained to the Lake of Fire in Hell for eternity. The difference between the Bible and Quran is that the Bible gives humanity opportunity after opportunity to make a free choice to be Redeemed by the Redemptive act of Jesus Christ on the Cross and the Lord’s bodily Resurrection from the dead as the glorified fully human and fully God. Allah’s plan is to send some supernatural being along with a fake Christ to militarily force humanity in the present to time to convert to Islam or die.
The God of the Bible plan is that God Himself as the Second Person of the Trinity will lead both Angelic armies and the armies of the Believers in Christ to defeat the nations following the human Anti-Christ, the human False Prophet and the Beast under the direction of Satan. Even in defeat the nations will have a chance to call Jesus Lord and in the thousand year reign of Christ. At the end of the Thousand Years humanity will have its last chance to be with God or be with Satan just released from Hell’s chains to tempt humanity one last time. After which all Fallen Angels, all Satan loving humans and Satan will be sentenced to the Lake of Fire after the Last Judgment. (Read Revelation 20)
Is there a threat to the existence of the Earth Biblically? The answer is ‘yes.’ It is a ‘yes’ even though humanity survives the Earth’s destruction.
All Things Made New
21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me,[b] “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done![c] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things,[d] and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,[e]abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me[f] and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g] 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h]Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,[a] for the glory[b] of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved[c] shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.[d] 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.[e] 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes[f] an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. (Revelation 21: 1-11; 21-27 NKJV)
And just as an addendum to all those that do not believe Jesus Christ – fully man and fully God simultaneously – is the Son of God that Resurrected after He was Crucified by sinful men to save ALL sinful men who choose life in Christ Jesus the Deliverer and Savior by believing the Good News rather than the lying influence of Satan.
The Time Is Near
6 Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the holy[a] prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.
7 “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
8 Now I, John, saw and heard[b] these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.
9 Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For[c] I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” 10 And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous[d] still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
Jesus Testifies to the Churches
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”[e]
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments,[f] that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But[g] outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
18 For[h] I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add[i] to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away[j] his part from the Book[k] of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22: 6-19 NKJV)
