ET, Here We Come!

In 20 years or less, scientists will probably discover life on another planet, according to NASA bigwigs (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5087185/NASA-experts-says-alien-life-20-yrs.html). Hey, a couple of Jupiter’s moons have water under their ice. There might be mermaids.

Dig this quote. “We’re using the same climate models that we use to project 21st century climate change on Earth to do simulations of specific exoplanets that have been discovered, and hypothetical planets [emphasis added].”

I guess you can always make Climbit Change models work on hypothetical planets created by you and your computer. You will probably find hypothetical life on your hypothetical planets. Too bad you can’t fund it with hypothetical tax dollars.

Humanist religion demands a universe full of inhabited planets where life arose spontaneously through random events and then evolved into Al Franken. “See? See! This proves there is no God! This proves he didn’t create nothin’!” That’s what they’re looking to shout from the housetops.

There is no reason why God should not have created life on other planets. I suspect He probably has. But so far, we have found no evidence of it. And what may or may not have happened on some planet a dozen light-years from ours, even if it could be known, is probably irrelevant.

Or at least hypothetically irrelevant.
