Why can science not admit that there may well be intelligent life that is not carbon-based; i.e. life that is not limited to the rules governing carbon-based life?
That occurred to me too, after hearing the Dawkins postulate that extraterrestrial life had to have evolved, i f it existed. It might not even be carbon based (if it exists) and it could presumably have come into existence through a far different process, if it exists. But the Dawkins dogmatically declares that if it exists it must have evolved. You show the Dawkins 10 inkblots, and they all look like "evolution" to him. Broken. The eye sees what it wants to see.
Hey Dawkins, its a big Universe out there.
