BTW, about the Spampermia, er Panspermia, whatever🙂, the proof I am talking about is lab work done SIMULATING the conditions of space, rocks with microbes inside subjecte tion for extremely long periods of time only to be resucscitated on contact with good old H2O.
Yes, but a small minority, small but loud, think that Genisis is correct, and they claim that their faith is a stronger proof than scientific observations. Well, they will have some problems to redifine their faith. Or not. Whatever...
I know too that certain microbes can suvive vacuum, low temp, and radiation. But this doesn't prove that panspermia theory is true. It doesn't disprove it either.
If we look at the pansperiman theory, the life on Earth can be of Martian origin, or the Martian life (if they find any) is of Earthly origin. Or, the origin of life can be werever in the Galaxy. Well, I tend to think it is most probable that the Earthly life has its origin on Earth. What do you think? Are we Martian decendants, do you think?
