Wickramasinghe is a long-time proponent of panspermia. He denies that molecules-to-man evolution could have occurred on earth so he, like some other astrobiologists, exports the problems he sees with evolution to outer space and imports “cometary panspermia” as the solution.
Evolutionary scientists are ever on the lookout for some way to explain the leap from non-life to life. The logical first step, from their worldview, would be to find a source of “prebiotic” substances. The idea of meteorites “seeding” life on earth is very attractive to those who believe in “molecules-to-man” evolution.
A meteorite said to be billions of years old contains molecules that include carbon atoms. That this meteorite contains carbon proves only that this meteorite contains carbon; evolutionists have no clear answer to how lifeless molecules could have self-organized into reproducing life.
The inventory of life’s building blocks in space rocks rises.
The verdict is in: the “building blocks of life” are found in meteorites.
The bold news headlines seemed clear—and overstated, in the case of a Digital Trends article (carried by Yahoo! News) announcing, “NASA scientist finds evidence of alien life.” While other headlines were slightly more conservative in their wording, the tone of much of the initial media coverage paralleled the Digital Trends report, whose first paragraph informed readers, “Aliens exist, and we have proof.”
Headlines over the weekend boldly proclaimed that we are not alone in the universe. This assertion relies upon reports that a NASA scientist has discovered tiny fossils of alien life in a meteorite.
Evolutionists “know” life evolved on earth, and since earth “can’t be” unique (they say), life must have evolved elsewhere in the universe. So where is ET hiding?
It isn’t alien life, but it’s the closest thing to it that routinely excites astronomers: the stuff that life is made of.
“The odds are improving that life exists beyond Earth,” begins a ScienceNOW article, crediting the change to a study of a “billions-of-years-old” meteorite.
Finally, evolutionists have the hypothesis they need to show that it requires no faith whatsoever to believe that we weren’t created. Or, wait—we have that backwards.
Last year, researchers reported evidence of microbes in the upper stratosphere, and recent tests have apparently confirmed their discovery. Exciting news—the discovery of life in space—but one questio
