Cool. I've heard the theory before that some forms of life could have come to Earth via meteorites that came from Mars, assumeing that at one point Mars was hospitable due to a thicker atmosphere then that of earth.

Will be pretty awesome if it pans out. Maybe something like this could put NASA back in the public's eye and get more funding for our space programs.

Obviously The Lord is testing your faith to see if you're worthy of heaven.

**** that guy, he's a dick anyway.

Here's hoping it comes to something, if only to watch the Christians find a passage in the bible that explains it away. I seem to remember this happened a few years ago and it ended up beingthe remains of a puddle though. I can only find mirrors of the same yahoo article so far and fox news is mentioned so not holding my breath just yet.

Don't take this as a personal attack, Blaize, but you bring up a subject that really bothers me from time to time. I am quite annoyed, frankly, by the assertion (both by those wishing to attack Christianity as well as by some of the more rather feeble-minded individuals who profess to be of the Christian faith) that there is some inherent contradiction between the principle of intelligent design and the idea that life might exist in places other than earth.

Where does this come from? Where, in all of the canonical doctrine of all of Christianity (or all of Judaism, or all of Islam) does it say "Life exists only on earth"?

Fair point Joe, I suppose the recent religion vs science trend in the states (admittedly by extremists on both sides) lead me to assume there would be a fight about it. My understanding of christianity for most people is that the good book explains everything and if it isn't in the book it didn't happen (evolution, the ice ages, big bang, ect). While I am sure there will be alot of people with faith who take the view you do, I am just as sure there will be alot of them who will see it as an attack on their beliefs to suppose that we are not alone.

Saying that, you raise a point I had never really considered. I will adjust my religion bashing accordingly.

Well, I'm sure that a lot of people do interpret things that way, and they tend to be quite loud about it. It's honestly just never occurred to me to think "well, X isn't in this particular book, so X cannot be."

It'd be like arguing that the '99 Miata doesn't have a friction-reducing coating around the throttle plate simply because it's not discussed in the factory service manual. (Don't believe me? I'm completely serious. There is absolutely no discussion of the mechanical properties of the throttle body in the whole '99 FSM.) And yet I can look at the throttle plate and clearly see that there is a grey coating around it, and if I look at several '99 Miatas and see the same thing, then from this, I surmise that factory put it there.

I'm not doubting you- I see this kind of thing all the time. This isn't faith, it's... I don't know. I'm not sure there's even a term for it. Exclusionist literalism?

Haha. Ok, that's a fair way of putting things in perspective.

Old news.. the Mayans knew about these fossils. Lol, seriously though it seems more like a fake to give NASA a new purpose and more tax dollars now that the shuttle program is finished.

spelling edit

I think it was directed at me or hustler. I said something about a theory that says the orgins of life on earth could have possibly came here via cosmic debris, and hustler said something sarcastic about God testing ppl's faith by showing us space germs. Could be wrong though.

Thanks for the video. I was getting ready to do my workout (elliptical) and the wife was hogging the TV. This was a good time killer.


If anyone is interested, here are part #2 and #3 (they were a little hard to find). I think I am going to put the V8 project on hold a while so I can build a "God Helmet" like that guy has in part #2:

I just took a university astronomy course and learned a bunch of amazing stuff. Mostly the fact that life thrives in very hostile environments, and it appears quite quickly. The shear size of just our universe alone makes it near impossible for there not to be life. But on the topic of mars, it's pretty crazy but it used to be a very earth similar planet. With oceans, rivers, etc. Still a ton of ice on the planet underneath the dirt.
