This piece suggests bacteria and viruses can be flung out of the atmosphere and into interplanetary and even interstellar space and survive and have a chance of landing on some other planet maybe in another solar system or mars to earth or Vs Versa. Here is the link:

Thanks for the link to that, it got a rec from me just for sheer coolness value. I'm going to see if I can turn up anything else cool in this vein, and I've already emailed the link to several professional microbiologists, I'll see if they have anything to say. But that is just plain awesome, orgins of life regardless. I'm just psyched about the flying bacteria.
Originally posted by sonhouseThat is exactly the part I thought was cool. I've known about the Mars bacteria since it was found (although we still can't be sure if it is legit or not), and that was exciting, but my point was is that it isn't the idea of seeding life that earned the rec, it is the evolution and growth in the atmosphere supported by electric charge vs. gravity.

This new the ...[text shortened]... out of the solar system or out of A solar system and maybe seed earth, mars, venus, titan, etc.
Originally posted by frogstompI think I read somewhere that NASA had confirmed the amino acid thing, can't seem to find it right now though.
This is a possibility:
An amino acid, one of the building blocks of life, has been spotted in deep space. If the find stands up to scrutiny, it means that the sorts of chemistry needed to create life are not unique to Earth verifying one of astrobiology's cherished theories.
This would add weight to ideas that life exists on other planets, and ...[text shortened]... , and to a large extent make up our cells.
Originally posted by royaltystatementSo why is it named Earth then?
Earth is named after dirt yes, but out of water came Earth through the power of the all powerful, so water was allways here, even when Lucifer was banished from heaven and given the name Satan i.e. adversary. Water is life, so Earth has life and allways had life.
Originally posted by royaltystatementNo, but there is no point. I once tried to tell people about the Illuminati, but then some men showed up and showed me how it was all just a made up story. It is amazing how clear it is once you really have it explained to you. Post your address and I'm sure you'll see the truth in no time.
Is disucssing the Illuminati Taboo?:'(
