(Tea Party 247) – It seems not a day goes by in this modern era where some wacky thing or another goes viral on social media. Usually it’s a silly video of a kid or a cat that everyone thinks is hilarious and cute, sharing it on their wall and moving on with their day.
However, on occasion, folks around this great country of ours come up with an idea that, on the surface, seems comical, but could end up having some pretty serious consequences for the individuals who participate.
A great example of this is the 430,000 online activists who have pledged to storm the infamous Area 51 facility on September 20 in the hopes of discovering whether or not the secretive base is home to alien beings.
Now, as you might imagine, such action is fraught with all kinds of danger. Like catching a ball of lead in the chest. But that threat doesn’t seem to be phasing these folks.
Here’s more details from Intellihub:
A Facebook event post titled Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us has gained quite some traction on the interwebs but may prove to be more dangerous than thrill seekers are thinking.
“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the post reads. “If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them aliens.”
It’s well known that anyone who crosses the Area 51 base boundary has always been met by extreme force and in most cases arrested.
It’s not hard to understand why so many people are interested in participating in this activity. After all, Area 51 has been shrouded in mystery for many decades, as American citizens have witnessed so much strange behavior near the base.
And of course, who can forget Roswell, New Mexico? Yes, as human beings we’ve always wondered whether or not we’re alone in the universe or if other intelligent life can be found elsewhere. It seems to be a question that frightens a lot of people, because, honestly, being alone is kind of spooky and lonely.
However, those of us who are faithful Christians already know we’re not alone. That God exists and He is the sovereign ruler of all creation, a being perfect and holy who loves His creation. This is definitely good news.
Anyway, if these interested parties really care about their lives, they better reconsider storming any such military installation. Otherwise they might get themselves into a world of hurt.
