Just Breaking: Hard Evidence Of ET Life?

    Go to the disclosetv site. It is claimed that on Jan. 10 The Journal Of Cosmology published a paper by 4 scientists stating that hard evidence of fossilized single cell life was found in a Sri Lanka meterorite.

    I've got some reading to do.. I just stumbled on to this and it appears to be real....

    Hello Metatron! There are many websites discussing this find. You may find some interesting information at the below website which is quite popular. Wouldn't it be something if it turned out to be legit!

    Just the dates on this "article" show it's wrong.

    And by "wrong" I mean BS.

    Be nice, but The Journal of Cosmology's Wikipedia Page:

    The quality of peer review at the journal has been questioned several times. [2] [3] [4] [5] The journal has also been accused of promoting fringe viewpoints and speculative viewpoints on astrobiology, astrophysics, and quantum physics. Skeptical blogger and biologist PZ Myers said of the journal "... it isn't a real science journal at all, but is the... website of a small group... obsessed with the idea of Hoyle and Wickramasinghe that life originated in outer space and simply rained down on Earth." [3] [7]

    Doesn't sound like an entirely credible source.

    Photos, etc. Who knows these days? Not the first time somebody has found weird micro structures in a meteorite. And that's going back 50 years.

    Those kinds of meteorites are known to have organic compounds in them. That does not mean it is the same as evidence of life. Also, a witnessed fresh fall, like the Murchison, is less likely to be contaminated by terrestrial organisms than one that is found way after its fall.

    I have heard about Panspermia advocates claiming that all sorts of single cell life float around in the upper atmosphere where you would least expect and can be found on returning spacecraft.


  • EntirelyPossible

    Why would you least expect organisms in the upper atmosphere?

  • gubberningbody

    Every theory of life is missing crucial pieces. The standard non-directed model of evolution bounded by random mutations and natural selection is demonstrably insufficient to the task, and raining down even single celled replicating organisms frozen and revived from meteorites (which haven't been found) is still insufficient because the effective novelty production machinery simply isn't there.

    The only theory at present which in fact is just based on phenomenology and lacking a meterial theory at this point is Rupert Sheldrakes "Theory of Formative Causation". This doesn't help us at the moment because it involves "fields" which thus far we have no means for detecting. This in and of itself isn't a cause for alarm, but it is cause for annoyance.
