When people try to make this argument I always like to point out that space exploration has led to technological advances for society that were only previously seen in military and warfare pursuits. It's not just about getting a rocket off the ground and taking pictures from space, it's about growing our knowledge of the universe to create a better more prosperous society for all.

Can someone explain to those who haven't taken economics yet on what exactly is going on?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parable_of_the_broken_window The second and third point amount to subjective interpretation on where is best to allocate money.

> $100 billion dollars 100 billion dollars dollars?

I always hate this argument. Did you know that the technology developed to help dock to a spacestation turned out to be thousands of times more accurate than necessary and resulted in the invention of LASIK? That's right, space shuttle tech resulted in revolutionary eye surgery. People that think it is pointless to explore our universe are fucking morons.

Not sure if anyone pointed out that one of the reasons churches aren't taxed is that it has been viewed as a potential way to limit freedom of religion. Essentially, taxation could be used as a form of combating religions that people don't like. More on it here: http://www.latimes.com/la-oew-lynn-stanley23-2008sep23-story.html

All three separately are burns, but when put together, they become the unstoppable force known as a murder, a murder by words.

To be honest i didnt agree with the taxing the church part tho. The church is ment to be the backbone of charity and helping the disfranchised. Not the government

He attacked churches and the military to defend NASA. It's like his arguments are tailor made to get the most upvotes on reddit

That guy can mind his own damn business whatever money I spend on potato chips doesn't affect him and he should leave it alone.

this sub is really underwhelming with its content The sub name implies verbal evisceration that decimate the opponent, instead I just find snarky paragraphs that preach to the choir.

And here we are, spending money on the next super suit or spider silk body armor bullshit that’s gonna be fucking useless because some officers and nerds at DARPA thought grunts need cool space age shit. Give us better healthcare, better VA, and better food. Seriously, those MREs suck ass.

I have never seen a single post on this sub trend that was actually a "murder by words"

How do people not understand that it's people here on Earth receiving the money, not Martians? what the fuck

We send a rover to Mars not because it is easy, but because it's pretty kick-ass.

i agree with jens but chose some really poor arguments
15 Feb 2018 14:55 - +2
The fact that the money doesn't leave America isn't a particularly strong point. People worked on the rover when they could have been working to directly help struggling people on Earth instead. And then he goes on to talk about how Americans shouldn't worry because it's only a measly $2.5 billion. This isn't how you approach a conversation about public spending. There are many positive aspects of spending money on space technology. Jens doesn't mention any of these. He's a bit silly and if anything probably made the original poster more convinced of his idea that there is "No Hope For the Human Race".
