We’re Not From Hereby Buzz on 3/05/2015
The Anti-Theist vs Young Earth Creationist hissy fit continues apace, with both sides screaming “Is not! / Is, too!” at each other ad infinitum.
The truth, as always, seems to elude both of them.
Latest clue to the puzzle points us back into the depths of interstellar space again.
“Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are important ingredients of life on Earth,” the study’s lead author, Arnaud Belloche, of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy… The detection of a molecule with a branched carbon backbone in interstellar space, in a region where stars are being formed, is interesting because it shows that interstellar chemistry is indeed capable of producing molecules with such a complex, branched structure.”
So in other words, more evidence that life may have originated off of this planet instead of on it, and if it did originate on Earth then it may have still be significantly changed and irrevocably altered by extraterrestrial influence.
Bad news for the Anti-Theists:
Intelligent Design can’t be taken off the table since there is no way of determining where & how life originated.
Bad news for the Creationists:
Billions and billions of years, poindexters.
Good news for the rest of us:
Ain’t the universe wonderful?
