The Certainty of a Future Life In Mars

Did you know that when you die, your soul goes to a new life on Mars?

You can read all about it right here.


Here's what happens when the new soul first arrives.


Here's a little scholarly perspective.

And, if you send in a small donation of only $999 then we can ensure that, not only will your soul we instantly whisked to Jupiter, but you will not have to experience the two month long wait in The Dome of Souls but will be passed through immediately upon arrival.

I try to read some of these stories from time to time - thank goodness for Project Gutenberg and its spinoffs.

The genre of science fiction had to start somewhere in mass communication. Some of it is good, some middling (most of Verne and Wells are pretty stilted prose), and then there is just the awful stuff as shown here. Funny enough, the greatest influential mind in all of the science fiction genre, John W, Campbell, was a practitioner of this style into the 1950's pretty much after it had gone out of style in the 1940's.

Campbell may have been one of the greatest editors / mentors of his stable of authors during his time at "Astounding", but he really sucked at his own stories.

If Mars is Heaven I suppose Mercury is hell, right?

This isn't science fiction, this is space Blavatsky. Not a shred of science in sight, and it probably wasn't intended as fiction, either. It's about as much SF as The Chymical Marriage was.

Bos, I agree with the underlying Blavatsky influence. Theosophism, mysticism, migration of souls, astral projection, whatever. I tend to lump this style into early attempts at science fiction even if it was written in all seriousness.

You must know, I grew up in California until I moved away in 1996. Weird beliefs are an embedded part of the culture.

Richard C. Hoagland has the unretouched NASA photos to prove it. 🙄
