Hole Holds Promise?

on January 1, 2008

A huge spot on Mars found last year by astronomers had some scientists wondering whether it contained life.

Dark Spot on Mars

A very dark spot on Mars could be an entrance to a deep hole or cavern, according to scientists studying imagery taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The geological oddity measures some 330 feet (100 meters) across. Photo courtesy of NASA.

Evolutionists have speculated that this hole or cavern “might be the sort of place that could support life.”1 The desire to find life on Mars is so strong that even a hole is promising!

Meanwhile, a 2018 European Space Agency mission—to find signs of life on hundreds of extrasolar planets—is being planned. Not surprisingly, it’s called the “Darwin mission.” Billions of dollars will be spent on what will be a fruitless search for extraterrestrial life, rather than to believe the ultimate Extraterrestrial placed us here.
