I’m sorry, but SpaceX is a joke.
Yesterday evening and into the night they launched yet again another SAT into geostationary orbit. Good for them. I have watched every single launch. And when I have had the opportunity I have watched them live. And sadly, I am surprised to see that more people are not realizing that it is all a bunch of nonsense. This company is using sleight of hand to trick people into thinking they are doing something they are not. Every single launch they have done shows the exact same type of footage to the letter. When the reusable capsule rocket ascends for landing the camera goes out (either in total or just long enough to disrupt the landing sequence). When the SAT is released and opens up it is only shown for a split second with an excited crowd cheering in the audio background noise. The shot is just long enough that you don’t see anything at all.
It is all a joke.
And if you think I am just full of it, look at the following launch images from SpaceX and ask yourself, do you honestly see these images and think to yourself that these rockets left the atmosphere?
I think not. They launch up, reach roughly 20 miles high and then careen downward (not up and away, but rather; around and down). If you look at those shots and can honestly tell yourself that these rockets reached beyond the exosphere then you are in denial. That arch is literally taking place in the stratosphere, people.
And all I can say to that is this;
2 Peter 3:2-7 – That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
But, don’t take my word for it. Just ask good ol’ Bill what he thinks.
