    Evidence of a form of life (micro-organisms) not originating on Earth and unfamiliar to our scientists have been discovered. The research is open to the scientific community and although this has yet to be confirmed by a third-party, we have proof and the next step is to attempt to disprove the hypothesis. But considering fossil evidence was found in a meteorite, originating from outer-space, I highly doubt it will be disproved. Alien life exists as a scientific fact.

    3. For the length of time the meteorite was lying on the earth, it almost certainly was tainted with earthly microorganisms.
    4. There's no way to demonstrate that the apparent remains were, in fact, once living microorganisms. Other origins are possible.

    In short, although the meteorite had orgins in space, the paper cannot credibly conclude that any fossilized remains of microorganisms (if that's what the fossilized remains are) in the meteorite also had origins in space.

    When the Earth, or any planet or moon, is hit by a large object (such as an asteroid), chunks of the dirt and rock can fly into the upper atmosphere from the force of the impact. It stands to reason that some of the stuff floating in space originated from another planet. The same way fossils are created here on Earth, fossils are created on distant planets. When those distant planets are hit by asteroids, chucks of the ground fly into space.

    And some scientists are already calling the paper "garbage". In addition, the journal that the article is in has no process of peer review at all, and has released articles in the past that were found to be bogus later on.
    Not rained on at all; skepticism is the essence of science. But the article hasn't been debunked yet, and until it is, it's a viable theory. The next step is to either prove or disprove the findings. Until it's debunked, I am willing to keep an open mind. The evidence is compelling, even if an impartial third-party hasn't confirmed it.

    Re: NASA proves that Alein Life Exists

    I find it very telling that NASA is jumping to dismiss the finding without actually DISPROVING the finding with its own scientific analysis. They are writing it off as contamination and exposure to earth organisms, but how did an earth organism invade the meteorite and become fossilized within the past 100 years? Impossible.

    I'm not saying the paper is proof positive but the way it is just being so easily dismissed seems fishy.

    It's going to be reviewed within the next 3 days by 100+ scientists.
    Let's see what they say.

    It's not "faith" it's a hypotheses. There is a critical difference: a hypotheses is changed when new facts are introduced.

    Again, I wholly believe that alien life is out there somewhere. But these are the problems I had with the findings. What's worrisome is nowhere in the article does it say what led the researcher to conclude the organism was extraterrestrial in origin, other than "I cut it out of a meteorite."

    Question? Without anything to compare this supposed discovery with....how can anyone even attempt to present a valid hypothesis might less claim that such speculation is a FACT of SCIENCE? Does this mean that the human footprints that were found in coal seams in several states (Ky., Missouri, Ill., Pa., Val, Wva., and even in the Rockie Mts) prove that humans existed during the Carboniferous period on the Geological Scale?
