Tailpipe Soot: Can It Live?

Better stay clear of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).  They come out of your tailpipe and furnace, line your chimney, and generally are products of unhealthy processes like industrial waste and cigarette smoke.  According to Environment Canada, “PAHs are a concern because some of them can cause cancers in humans and are harmful to fish and other aquatic life.”  So why the joy from the Spitzer Space Telescope team?
    Robert Roy Britt explains from Space.com: “The discovery of organic molecules, called hydrocarbons, shows that the raw materials for life were present long before our solar system formed.”  The JPL press release claims, “Using Spitzer, scientists have detected organic molecules in galaxies when our universe was one-fourth of its current age of about 14 billion years.  These large molecules, known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, are comprised of carbon and hydrogen.  The molecules are considered to be among the building blocks of life.”  Universe Today picked up on the L word with its title, “Ingredients of Life 10 Billion Light-Years Away,” and so did New Scientist, “Life’s ingredients found in early universe.”

It takes a desperate Darwin junky to get high on tailpipe exhaust.  They should be weeping over their sins, seeing complex advanced molecules far too early for their cosmological models, but what are they doing instead?  Hallucinating with poison, making deadly molecules come alive in their imaginations.  How and when did science ever sink to this level?  Hydrogen is a building block of life, for goodness’ sake, and so are electrons.  Do we conclude that we have found the “building blocks of life” in a CRT?  Publicists go out of their way to put the L word in any cosmological story because they think it’s sexier and will attract the public attention.  If so, the Great Unwashed have only themselves to blame for giving birth to new suckers every minute.  Actually, they probably don’t even read this stuff.  The problem is with the Washed on the outside but not on the inside.
