Is There Life in Space?

on June 24, 2009

Is there intelligent life somewhere in outer space? Do aliens live on another planet, far away? Men have been searching for decades to see if someone in space will contact us. For instance, people once wondered if perhaps there was some form of life on the moon. Finally scientists determined that the moon is a lifeless place. More recently, the search has focused on Mars, where indications of water make scientists hopeful they might find some signs of life. However, despite the intense search, no signs of life have been found.

The unmanned Voyager spacecrafts have taken thousands of pictures of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These pictures reveal harsh, unlivable worlds. Scientists have also sent radio signals into deep space, sending greetings to any inhabitants of planets circling distant stars. The radio telescopes “listen” for any space messages that might be coming toward us here on Earth. Have they found anything? No!

The results show that life as we know it is unique to Earth. This is upsetting to evolutionists, who believe that life began on Earth through natural processes millions of years ago. They would like to see signs that life has started in the same way somewhere else. Yet we know that God is the creator of life, and He created the abundant life we see around us. The Bible tells us, “The heavens declare the glory of God” (Psalm 19:1). When we look out into space, we should be looking not for aliens, but for the Creator.
