A Saudi sheikh has issued a fatwa against anyone wanting to travel to Mars.
The Mars One Foundation, a private, nonprofit organisation seeking to establish a permanent, occupied settlement on Mars by 2023 has apparently not found favor with higher ups in the Religion of Peace. In fact Sheikh Ali al Hemki has issued a fatwa against the organization and its plan, claiming the proposed mission “does not conform to ‘responsible Muslim’ practices.” (1)
With the exception of beheading infidels, abusing females and killing anyone who disagrees with them, does ANYTHING conform to “responsible Muslim practices?” More importantly, ARE there any such things as “responsible” Muslim practices?
“These experiments will lead to the destruction of those who try,” and so should be done with animals, not people,” said al Hemki. (1) Perhaps someone should tell the Sheikh that with the exception of opposable thumbs, Muslims are not all that different from…well, you get the idea.
