Re: funding for manned Mission to Mars [financial/political ONLY]

I think the proponents of such a mission, like all adherants of irrational belief systems, should form the Church of Manned Spaceflight, and demand tithes from their members to fund this grandiose religious endeavour.

Getting recognition as a religion would also make it easier to explain the irregular human sacrifice (like the sacrificial lambs and virgins of yore, only near-flawless, bright, capable specimen can become astronauts) their god demands.
