In the years of my youth and before, the search for extraterrestrial lifeforms focused on the discovery of human-like aliens. No more.
Let’s start with a premise of biology: Bacteria are found in every kind of environment. Extending this idea, some scientists postulate bacterium to be the cause of solar activity.
TV shows The Outer Limits and Lost in Space, along with movies like the Star Wars series, the Star Trek series and even Avatar projected humanoids as ‘alien life’.
SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) has its genesis in 1984 California on a belief there must be intelligent life on other worlds and the sure-fire way to contact them was to listen to radio signals from outer space. They did. It didn’t happen.
Huge sums of money have funded SETI listening sites around the world. The one pictured is in Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
Well, have we detected any intelligent radio signals from space? Indeed we have and they are from us, our spacecraft that have been traversing our solar system for decades. But no E.T. has called to us as yet.
SETI changed its mission from intelligent life (that’s what the ‘I’ stands for) to anything organic that can be found. Anywhere.
Darwin began his quest long ago to discredit our divine origin, as recorded in the Bible. Atheistic scientists continue Darwin’s line of thinking with absolutely no success whatsoever.
Let’s look at the numbers – using the numbers from atheists and agnostics.
What is the theoretical expanse of the known universe? 92 billion light years in diameter.
What is the theoretical age of the earth? 4.543 billion years.
What is the central idea of the evolutionists? Generally speaking, we humans evolved from animals that evolved from some mysterious goo somewhere around 4.543 million years ago. They believe that intelligent life is proportional to the age of existence of a society of human-like creatures. Extending this line of thinking, if extraterrestrial life exists beyond our Milky Way galaxy, said life would have long ago developed sophisticated radio and laser communications technologies. The problem is this: we hear NOTHING from space except radio signals from our own contraptions. Nothing. Nada.
With the above-described failure to detect intelligent life beyond our orbit around the sun, evolutionists turn to a search for bacterium as the preferred form of life.
NASA’s original mission was to capacitate and facilitate aviation and space travel. Over recent years, the mission of this federal agency has undergone a metamorphosis. Its present-day mission is to prove the theory of human evolution while disproving the reality of a Creator. Huge sums of taxpayer dollars go into scouring climate and geological data to prove we people are enemies of Mother Earth.
A preacher I knew would say, “Truth is the way things really are.”
One definition of science is: “the systematic study of the nature and behavior of the material and physical universe, based on observation, experiment, and measurement, and the formulation of laws to describe these facts in general terms.” We call this process the Scientific Method.
Climate change and global warming activists do not follow the scientific method, preferring to cling to unprovable theories based on evolution and the notion that we endanger their god Mother Earth.
There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily. – George Washington
