“For hundreds of years, Hawaiians have revered the ancient chants about navigating via the stars.
Today we send canoes around the world navigating by the stars.
Akua (God) raised His tall mountains high above the clouds and placed them surrounded water on an island where light reflection could be controlled so we could study the stars.
The mountains may be considered sacred, but also sacred is the purpose for which Akua has done this — so we can still study the stars.
Stopping the Thirty Meter Telescope hinders Akua’s purpose. Since when can Man say he knows better than Akua as to why Akua has placed His mountains here.
Let the telescope be built and let us study the stars as Akua intended. It would be blasphemy to do otherwise.”
