    By the Lord's hand.

    You have degrees in microbiology, extraterrestrial sciences? Do you work for NASA?
    I don't know. Like I said, I'm guessing. I do know, however, that the kinds of microbes which are hardy enough to survive in space or on Mars are rare and as such are not likely to have found their way onto one of our spacecraft.

    It's okay. Sonnabend and I have a certain rapport which allows for us to have extremely hostile exchanges while still enjoying each other's company. We are kind of like Sam and Ralph...

    You're assuming that these are terrestrial microbes following terrestrial physiology. Any living organism that has evolved to survive in an alien atmosphere or hostile environmental conditions can handle vacuum.

    The Andromeda Strain, whilst agreed as fiction nevertheless touches on a very real scientific basis. We are one race, on a small backwoods planet amongst a billion stars and planets..and it is the very height of hubris to assume that all life must parallel or be similar to ours.

    That we have not seen them does not mean they do not exist..it means we do not know.

    To me, it is the very height of arrogance to believe that we are the only life in this entire universe.

    No more than thinking we were made in His image.;)

    My argument is that if there is life on Mars, it probably did not originate from Earth.

    I couldn't agree more with your statement that Earth is not the only place in the Universe which has life. In my view, the probability that life exists on planets other than Earth is extremely high... probably close to 100%. In fact, I'm of the mind that life is abundant in the Universe and that technological civilizations may be abundant as well. Consider...

    Life on Mars? I've known there's life on Mars since 1948...and I have the video to prove it.

    Proof of life on Mars.

    To the man who believes, no proof is necessary.
    To the man who does not, no proof will suffice.

    Or this

    Faith and science are the shoes on your feet..you get farther with both, than you do with just one.

    Literally. Put him on your ignore list because he offers nothing to this entire forum.

    If Adam and Eve had not sinned, what do you think the human race would've done once we had explored and understood this one planet?
