What Is It About Space Aliens that Makes Evolutionists Go Nuts?
Week after week, month after month, year after year, evolutionists speculate about imaginary friends they have never seen.
Perhaps our headline appears uncharitable to eminent scientists and reporters. Our response is to just show you what they are saying and let you decide.
SETI, METI, and Betty’s Spaghetti
Aliens Are Real, But Humans Will Probably Kill Them All, New Paper Says (Live Science). Brandon Specktor presents a new answer to the Fermi Paradox from a Russian imagineer named Alexander Berezin. He warns us that we’re not going to like it.
“What if,” Berezin wrote in a new paper posted March 27 to the preprint journal arxiv.org,”the first life that reaches interstellar travel capability necessarily eradicates all competition to fuel its own expansion?”
In other words, could humanity’s quest to discover intelligent life be directly responsible for obliterating that life outright? What if we are, unwittingly, the universe’s bad guys?
“What if, what if.” You have to admit the story is a clever way to dodge the lack of evidence for space aliens. Don’t ask him if eradicating competition is “evil,” because Darwinism has no such categories.
Decoding Alien Messages Could Be the Biggest Citizen-Science Project Ever (Space.com). Mike Wall wants to spread the folly. Let’s get everybody to join a fact-free project, decoding an alien message. Just don’t tell them to use intelligent design to do it. Mike is even prepared if no ET calls in. We’ll turn it around with METI (Messaging Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence). We’ll call up the imaginary friends for an exciting one-way conversation!
Can any civilization make it through climate change? (Science Daily). This article gives Adam Frank good press for publishing in Astrobiology the notion that other civilizations he has never seen may be going extinct because of climate change. Hidden message to fellow humans, perhaps? Live Science echoed this meme with its ominous theme, “Climate Change Killed the Aliens and It Will Probably Kill Us Too, New Simulation Suggests.”
We discovered that life may be billions of times more common in the multiverse (The Conversation). We “discovered” that? Who’s “we,” Paleface? (see Tontology in the Darwin Dictionary). The rest of us would like to see your evidence for a multiverse. Perhaps a peek into Betty’s kitchen to see what’s cooking.
Shifting a few letters provides a more accurate name than Astrobiology. Since no space aliens have called in yet, NASA would be happy to find some itsy germs that they imagine could evolve into ET’s.
NASA dives deep into the search for life (Phys.org). And here they go, diving to see earth-bound organisms at deep sea vents. The fumes create a bio-astrology high among astrobiologists, conjuring up visions of organisms at Enceladus in their collective imaginations.
Habitability of the young Earth could boost the chances of life elsewhere (Astrobiology Magazine). Joelle Renstrom gets all the blessing of NASA to speculate that an early earth she never saw might have been milder than thought, and then conclude that other planets might be mild, too.
The Moons of Some Giant Alien Planets Could Host Life (Space.com). Chelsea Gohd illustrates that way to get ahead in science. Write some fact-free fluff about life on moons and you can get published. Note to Chelsea: there’s no life on our own moon, which is in the habitable zone.
Mars rocks may harbor signs of life from 4 billion years ago (Science Daily). NASA sees some iron-rich rocks on Mars. Conclusion: there could have been life there. By analogy, a reader might presume, there could have been steel buildings there, too, and if steel, maybe Martians built swords and played Game of Thrones.
These speculations are so very far from the ideals of science set in the 17th century by Newton, Galileo, Boyle, and the other founders of modern science. They frowned on speculation and demanded empirical proof. They followed the evidence. There is NO evidence for space aliens or for space microbes, either. All the media hype is part of a scheme to make scientific materialism sound exciting. Well, it isn’t. Listen to one scientific materialist admit it in this new Illustra Media short film, “God and the Astronomer.” True confessions by the founding director of the NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center, after a long life as a materialist. Shocking. Are you listening, NASA?
