NASA Verdict: Most Exoplanets Are Not Habitable

Superflares from the majority of stars would likely sterilize any planet in its "habitable zone."

The Frantic Determination of Some Scientists to Discover Life Elsewhere

We often hear exciting news about 'habitable planets' that might have life, or at least the 'building blocks of life.' Are these reports based on sound thinking about the requirements?

Most Exoplanets Are Probably Not Habitable

More astrobiologists are coming to the "depressing" conclusion that we are alone in the universe, but it's only depressing if you're an evolutionist.

Van Allen Belts Protect Earth from Solar Wind

Geophysicists are still puzzling over how the earth's magnetic field and Van Allen radiation belts protect the surface from deadly particles in the solar wind.

Viruses From Distant Lands Fall from the Sky

Every day, billions of viruses are carried by high winds from continent to continent.

Habitable Planets Just Got Much More Rare

If this scientist’s theory about the origin of magnetic fields is correct, habitable planets will be few and far between. Earth has a magnetic field sufficient to support life. Venus does not. Why does “Earth’s twin” lack this protective shield? According to secular geophysicists, a magnetic field is generated by a dynamo in a planet’s […]

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Geophysics

by Dr Henry Richter This is a continuation of my discussion on the requirements to allow life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe. My discussion moved from our position in the galaxy, our position in the solar system, and then focused on the earth, looking at the influence of our moon, our […]

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Moon, Atmosphere, and Mass

This is part 3 of Dr Henry Richter's discussion on the requirements for life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe.

Habitability Requires the Right Kind of Star

This is a continuation of my discussion on the requirements to allow life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe.

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets

by Dr Henry Richter For a number of years I have been amused to watch many in the scientific community conduct a frantic campaign to identify life elsewhere in the universe. There has been a plethora of articles and significant dollars dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial life, particularly intelligent life. In recent times several […]

The Habitability Habit: Exaggerating Earth-Likeness

Secularists put too much hope on some aspects of Earth-like exoplanets, but sometimes reality keeps their imaginations in check.

Natural Selection Favors Illogic

Nothing in Darwin's mechanism guarantees humans will think rationally. Fitness might actually favor stupidity. For proof, look at the reasoning of people who believe in natural selection.

More Challenges to Astrobiology

There aren't likely as many places to live outside of Earth as earlier hoped.

Scientists Going Nuts Over Aliens

Baseless speculations are considered perfectly sane as long as you are a secular materialist.

More Indications Earth Is Unique

The late Carl Sagan might be stunned to see today's astronomers questioning Earth's "humdrum" status.
