Fossilized Bacteria From Space

I've just picked this up from the News: "A NASA scientist says he has found evidence of tiny fossilized bacteria on three meteorites and maintains the microscopic life forms are not native to Earth"

AG: I'll second that, and perhaps make a change [hopefully not] to it.

My view of what would be 'interesting' is creatures with a soul - whether fallen and redeemed (in some makker) or unfallen

To Whosoever Has An Ear to Hear?

Brethren, In the beginning was the Word and the Word was not only with God but was God, for in Him was Life which all things were made by & without Him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:1-5

Through Faith we Understand the worlds were framed by God's Word. Heb.11:3 So, Why is there an amazement that Life would exist some where else within the universe framed by the Life of God's Word !?!

I'm excited for the Life of God which originated else where in the universe b/c it wouldn't be subject to the curse we've 'Fallen' under on this world when Adam lost dominion upon the earth(not the universe) which separated us from God's Glory !!!

Evolution does not exist anywhere in the universe. Sin does not exist anywhere but earth, and here only temporarily.
---jerry6593 on 3/16/11


Bacteria existing in outer space is mildly interesting...evidence of complex organisms is a bit more interesting...but the most intriguing idea would be if other beings with fallible/redeemable souls existed elsewhere in the universe.
---AG on 3/15/11


\\Note that the Bible does not mention bacteria on meteroids or the "evolution" of life on other worlds for that matter.\\

In fact, jerry, just where does the Bible mention bacteria by name?
---Cluny on 3/15/11




\\Note that the Bible does not mention bacteria on meteroids or the "evolution" of life on other worlds for that matter.\\

Just because the Bible doesn't say something happened doesn't mean it didn't.

There is nothing that I can tell about the rise and development of civilizations in China or India, but that doesn't mean these things didn't happen.

Part 2:

jerry, I have no reason to reject the proposition that God created biological life elsewhere in the universe out of hand.

I also have no reason to accept it as axiomatic.

Neither one would affect the doctrines of Christianity.

And your calling me "Cloony" is only 2/3 of a pun.

Keep on blessing me and increasing my heavenly treasure.
---Cluny on 3/13/11


Francis hit the nail on the head.
Francis seems to admit that this human race is not the only one and the actions of Satan's rebellion is not confined to just one inhabited world but is as widespread and has infected much of the universe.
1/3 rd.of angels rebelled so that speaks for itself.
I agree with you Francis.
---earl on 3/13/11


Cloony: "These are your own words, Jerry. Please explain how they do NOT suggest you believe that God did not create life elsewhere in the universe."

Duh.... Because they don't mention God's not creating life elsewhere in the universe. Note that the Bible does not mention bacteria on meteroids or the "evolution" of life on other worlds for that matter. Only an overactive, anti-God mind conceives of such fantasies.

Get a grip, will you?
---jerry6593 on 3/12/11


\\then this can only mean that sin has spread to other parts of the universe.

How else woould you explain a being from another planet coming to earth and dying?\\

I understand St. Paul's "death coming into the world" by sin as meaning the death of human beings, not other earthly species. And I agree this point is debatable.

It has not yet been definitely established (except in conspiracy tales and related 20th century folklore) that any extra-terrestrial beings truly crashed to earth in 1947 or whenever.

I'm reserving judgement on that and related issues. So I have nothing to explain regarding this.

(Why would God inflict or permit death on beings from other planets because of sin on this one?)
---Cluny on 3/11/11




CLUNY, like you I also believe that God could have created beings on other planets. If the reports of being from other planets comeing to earth are true, including the crash and death of these beings, then this can only mean that sin has spread to other parts of the universe.

How else woould you explain a being from another planet coming to earth and dying?

\\Just another in a long list of evolutionist hoaxes. These people are obsessed with proving God wrong. They deserve to be ridiculed for the clowns that they are.
---jerry6593 on 3/10/11\\

These are your own words, jerry.

Please explain how they do NOT suggest you believe that God did not create life elsewhere in the universe.

And you think that following the ravings of a medium with a walk-in spirit of divination who was a false prophetess is a good person to follow.
---Cluny on 3/11/11


\\ To me it silpmy means that SIN HAS SPREAD THROUGH THE UNIVERSE
---francis on 3/10/11\\

Do you have any proof for this belief?
---Cluny on 3/10/11


Cloony: "jerry, please quote book, chapter, and verse from the Bible that says God did not create biological life elsewhere in the universe."

Now why would I do that? I never said such a thing. In fact, the Bible does indeed confirm that there is biological life elsewhere in the universe. Jesus, Moses, Elijah and Enoch are examples of such life. Why are you Orthoducks always on the wrong side of such issues?

\\But if you are correct and there is extraterrestrial 'human' life they will die when God destroys the old heavens and the old earth. But they never had a chance to accept God's free gift. \\

If there are single-celled organisms elsewhere in the universe, it does not follow that there are creatures capable of intelligent moral and spiritual life analagous to ourselves.

And even if there are, we don't know what God's plan for them is, as He has not revealed it to us.

---micha9344 on 3/9/11


Shawn it seems to me you go from unfounded assumptions regarding life elsewhere in the universe and then quote the truth of Scripture as a non answer to Stevens question.

The flood of Noah was God's judgement upon sin. Only the guilty died.

But if you are correct and there is extraterrestrial 'human' life they will die when God destroys the old heavens and the old earth. But they never had a chance to accept God's free gift.

Why get involved in such speculations?

Surely God does, and will do right but only by the descendants of Adam and Eve, those under the covenant of grace. I see not even the slightest evidence that others exist, out there, somewhere.
---Warwick on 3/9/11


Donna ... It has only just been announced!!
---alan8566_of_uk on 3/9/11


The last thing I heard was that no scientist could be found that had any faith in the theory. Not only did they question the finding of "fossilized Bacteria", there was also some question if the rocks even WERE meteorites.

---ShawnM.T. on 3/9/11


Shawn.M.T., let's suppose there are millions of worlds out there with life as you said - some good, some bad. It is prophesied that God will destroy the old heavens and the old earth and create new heavens and a new earth. Are you going to pray to God not to destroy this universe if there are fifty good planets out there? 40? 30? 10? Will God destroy the righteous with the wicked?

Thanks for the early morning laugh Elder.. :- )
Thats so mush better than a duckweigh.....about 3 lbs.

What a terrible thing for those bacteria to go through, to die and get stuck in a meteorite! So, these fossilized bacteria are said to not be on this earth? Well . . . if they are fossils . . . when were those meteorites formed? Maybe a long time ago when there were bacteria that no longer exist anywhere, now! So, of course they are not known, now! Bacteria like these "fossils" could have been on this earth but those meteorites, for all I know, came here and while they were still cooling, those now extinct bacteria got stuck to the cooling meteorites once they had chilled out, enough here, so they would not incinerate those poor little thingys (c:

This sounds like the supposed bacteria found on a meteorite found in either the arctic or antarctic, many years ago. It turned out to be nothing to do with bacteria and the story went away.
---Warwick on 3/7/11


Richard Hoover did not publish this in a respected scientific journal, but chose rather to publish it in the 'Journal of Cosmology'.
His findings have dismissed by many reputable scientists including NASA and many of his piers.
ABC News and TechNewsWorld have articles on this.

I'd like to know more about this before I say anything. Where can we find more information?

There was a meteorite supposedly from Mars that was believed by some to have fossilized Martian bacteria--but others were not so sure. This was during the Clinton administration.

Even if there were monocellular organisms elsewhere in the universe, how does that affect what God has done in Jesus Christ?
---Cluny on 3/7/11


The information just appeared that years ago when we landed a man on the moon we also brought back insects from the luner surface. They were little ticks. NASA nick-named them Luner ticks.
We have since sent them to Washington by election and they are running the country.
