One-way trip to Mars prohibited in Islam
« on: February 20, 2014, 09:10:35 PM »
Ahmed Shaaban / 19 February 2014

Fatwa committee under the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment in the UAE says such a journey poses a real risk to life.

Promoting or being involved in a one-way trip to the Red Planet is prohibited in Islam, a fatwa committee under the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment in the UAE has ruled.

“Such a one-way journey poses a real risk to life, and that can never be justified in Islam,” the committee said.  “There is a possibility that an individual who travels to planet Mars may not be able to remain alive there, and is more vulnerable to death.”

One of my favorite SciFi authors, John Ringo, created the best solution to radical Islam ever.  In his Posleen Wars, the Muslims declare Jihad against the invaders, who slaughter and consume (meaning eat) every single Muzzie in the entire Middle East.

My kind of aliens.....

Good.  Then, when humanity finally begins to move out from the nest, the rest of the Solar system, and the universe, will be spared the ugliness that is radical islam.

FWIW, I have seen many non muslims who are against space travel as well..
