As you can see by these book covers, Edgar Rice Burroughs didn’t need to wait for NASA to tell him all about life on Mars.
To hear the noozies and the left-wing “comics” tell it, liquid water has been found on Mars, you bet, absolutely, no doubt about it, and that just proves once again that Science and Liberals are always right about everything. And so on.
What has actually been found is indications or evidence that liquid water sometimes exists on the surface of Mars, probably in some form (containing certain minerals or chemicals, for instance) that would allow it to remain liquid at much lower temperatures than water can remain liquid here on Earth ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/liquid-water-mars_5608c70be4b0768126fdfd44 ).
Please note all the qualifiers, in italics. What it boils down to is there might be liquid water on Mars, sometimes, when conditions permit.
But of course people are already making the jump from that to the you-know-it’s-gotta-happen-soon discovery, on Mars, of living microbes and fossils of more complex creatures–which, to the humanist mind, proves that God did not create life on Earth, the Bible is wrong about everything, and it’s okay for us to be fornicating bastards.
If any trace of life is ever found on Mars, it is guaranteed to be presented to us–by noozies, academics, comedians, and Democrat politicians–as proof that God does not exist.
Liberals don’t like the idea of a Power higher than that of the omnivorous State. And they really, really don’t like the idea of any kind of Judgment after death.
So their humanist religion rejects those concepts.
And demands that life be found throughout the universe, erasing the uniqueness of Earth.
The universe is God’s, and He can create life wherever He pleases. The Bible is concerned with human life on Earth, how we should live it, and how we should come to know, love, and obey God. There is no reason for the subject of life on other planets to come up in the Bible.
It would be cool if life were found on Mars. I’d love to see the fossils. And I would know that, living or extinct, there could only be life on Mars if God had created it there.
