Michael Meyer, NASA scientist, questions how life on Earth began. In his comments about how life might have begun on Mars, he says that we know that meteors from Earth have hit Mars.
I’d like to know what evidence there is that any meteors from Earth have hit Mars. Any impact that could cause a chunk of this world to be expelled into space surely happened before man was here to witness it–and live to tell. The odds that a chunk escaped our gravity and made its way all the way to Mars are extraordinary. And I have yet to hear of any findings on Mars that supports this claim.
In researching this, I found this CNN opinion article in which the author states “But organic molecules get delivered to planets all the time from impacts by small and large asteroids and comets (like February’s fireball impact above Chelyabinsk, Russia), providing the last key ingredient for habitability.”
Really? So where is the evidence of these organic molecules? I also researched the Chelyabinsk meteor and fail to find any mention of organic matter.
As usual, it’s amazing that science states information as fact without the generally accepted level of evidence to support it. If it’s said enough times, it must be true. Otherwise, they must be operating on hope and faith. And if that’s the case, then it’s religion, not science!
