    Re: NASA proves that Alein Life Exists

    I saw this a few days ago, and found it interesting, yet not compelling at this point. As Danarhea pointed out already, there has not been an opportunity for the paper to be adequately scrutinized through the peer review process, and as it stands is just an interesting, yet unconfirmed discovery, and yet another example of the media in general picking up on a sensational tidbit and running to the presses with it.

    I am curious to see how it turns out, but at this point it is in league with the organic evidence found in Allan Hills 84001, a Martian meteorite found in Antartica.

    When the discovery was announced, many immediately conjectured that the fossils were the first true evidence of extraterrestrial life—making headlines around the world, and even prompting U.S. President Bill Clinton to make a formal televised announcement to mark the event.[

    Several tests for organic material have been performed on the meteorite and amino acids and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) have been found. The debate over whether the organic molecules in the meteorite are in fact of exobiologic origin or are due to abiotic processes on Mars or contamination from the contact with Antarctic ice on Earth is still ongoing

    life exists in more extreme conditions on earth than on some other places in the universe. I suspect that wherever there is water, there is life. I too believe in God, but unlike some believers, I don't think that the existence of life outside earth is a threat to religion

    I don't believe it would be any threat? I suppose those people are out there though. I just think if it was out there, we would have more evidence than a few drunks picked up in the woods with some cows, lol.

    if you were an alien with interstellar travel capability, would you want to visit anyone on this planet?

    This is why I have been very low key and have not let my presence here be known to the aliens, I really do not want them to come visit, because frankly I don't think people would handle it very well if the aliens were to find out I was here and as a result had a compelling reason to come visit.

    Re: NASA proves that Alein Life Exists

    Personally I would like to understand the logic of "Earth being the only one with life on it". I can understand it if it's coming from some zealot religious nut bag. But from regular folks? There are literally billions of galaxies out there with billions of stars in each one. To believe that our particular solar system was the only one to have life develop on it is astoundingly stupid.

    Given the size of the known universe, the Drake equation basically guarantees the possibility.

    Because it's quite ignorant to believe that our Earth is the only planet able to sustain life, especially microorganisms.
