Let The Creatard Shitting of Bricks Begineth

RE: Let The Creatard Shitting of Bricks Begineth
One of the most pathetic aspects of human nature is how many respond to the confidence with which something is said, instead of the content.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Quote:NASA: DNA Found on Meteorites Indicates Life May Have Originated in Space

Quote:NASA researchers have found the building blocks for life in meteorites, indicating that the components for life on Earth may have originated in outer space.

Researchers from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greebelt, Md., report evidence that ready-made DNA parts could have crashed to the surface on objects like meteorites, and then assembled under Earth's early conditions to create the first DNA.

No wonder the republicunts don't want to fund NASA. Jesus can't handle the competition.

The article is B.S. They did not find DNA on asteroids as claimed in the title. The found nucleobases. Nucleobases are not DNA.

No, Wood-head. If you bother to read it you will see that the story says exactly that. Apparently you don't know that headline writers sometimes make hyperbolic claims.

Quote:What they found was adenine and guanine. These are two of the nucleobases needed to make the rungs of DNA's spiral ladder (in addition to thymine and cytosine, which were not present in the sample).

The team also found hypoxathine and xanthine, which are not part of DNA but are used in various biological processes.
They didn't find strands of DNA, they found some of the parts that make DNA. If they had found DNA that story would probably have gotten wayyy more attention, because presumably they could use it to create dinosaurs and launch Jurassic Park. Or C'thulhu, in which case we would be pretty well fucked.

But seriously, it's a fascinating find. It means that the building blocks of life might be scattered about the galaxy and maybe even the universe, which means that there might be planets out there which are just a few billion years away from spawning their own sentient species.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

Hey, I'm right here. You know what it feels like to be this misunderstood, *and* have people talking about you like you're not even there? Sheesh.

P.S. you misspelled 'lunch'.

Hopefully they will have fewer Woodies than we do. You know, factory rejects!

The word "May" and the word, "Could".
Seems those words come up frequently in dissertations about origins too.
I wonder why?
May (be) when elephants fly we Could ride them.
See, I can use those words just like NASA.

The craving for certainty is the surest hallmark of a simple mind.

Personally I'd like more woodies, but think perhaps we are talking about different things.Wink Shades



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

Shit, science also has that covered too. Big Grin
