Was the European Comet Probe SABOTAGED?

Nimrod was a "mighty Hunter before the Lord" (Gen 10:9). He had a vast kingdom which began in Babel. Beginning in chapter 11 we begin reading the story of how Nimrod and his posse built a "tower" designed to reach all the way up to heaven. The fulfillment of this lofty goal would have ended when they reached the thin air obviously, depending on the structure of the human physique in those early days. The higher one goes the less the amount of oxygen in the air. Perhaps they had higher levels of red blood cells than modern humans which may have allowed them go higher than we can. But eventually they would reach an inhabitable limit governed by the technology of the day.

Some have argued that their technology was far more advanced than we know. Personally I think that is possible though unlikely. The Bible very clearly mentions the material they used.

And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
Genesis 11:3

Bricks and mortar, no matter how "throughly" they are burned, do not qualify as spaceship material.

On an interesting side note, a nuclear reactor was discovered in 1972 which was dated to be 2 billion years old. But I digress.

Throughout history man has been fascinated with space, the stars... the heavens. And for as long as man has been roaming the earth we have tried, failed, and tried again to reach them.  Our trips to the moon were brief and were still mostly within the protective womb of the geomagnetic field. Mostly. The brevity was essential to protecting the astronauts from the cosmic radiation which, as NASA and everyone else knows, will kill off any chance of successfully inhabiting any other planet than ours.

Back to Nimrod. He was a "mighty hunter" scripture says. The bow and arrow, a likely candidate for the weapon of the period, is very much like a mini-harpoon. When the European team of scientists set forth on their ten year journey to the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko with a probing device it carried with it three separate mechanisms to secure itself to the comet surface. It had three pads at the bottom of each of the three legs. Each pad had screws designed to fasten the pad to the surface. Voila! To keep the unit on the surface of the comet while the screws do their thing the probe was equipped with a thruster on the top which would engage and force the unit to the surface. But most importantly, for this article anyway, there was a harpoon; a powerful one.

The hunt continues. Like Nimrod, man is still acting like mighty hunters with their harpoons or modern hi-tech multi-billion dollar bows and arrows trying to unlock the mysteries of earth, to find out where we come from.

The Bible said it thousands of years ago and modern science confirms it. We are an earth-locked creature dependent upon the protection offered by our conveniently perfect geomagnetic field. And when we take a sobering look at the failures of man we can't help wondering, is God doing to us what He did to the infamous Tower of Babel all those years ago? What are the odds of all three probe securing devices failing? Seriously! The thing bounces off the comet and winds up resting precariously on two pads on the edge of a cliff in a shadow and goes dead after two days?

Somebody had to ask.

The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
Psalms 115:16

In spite of the billions of dollars spent and many lives lost mankind will not stop. The inexhaustible drive to find our creator will not be quenched. Thankfully the search will some day end. Because the creator will come to us. He will return to His creation to reclaim it, once and for all. When the lease is up the rightful property owner is coming back. Are you ready?
