Well, if they find water, then they will look in it and if they find anything at all in it, down to the smallest amino acid, they are going to compare it to earth and claim evolution works. How? I don't know. It'll be the same "fact a + magic wand of millions of years = evolution" game.
Reguardles, first they need water. Without it no soup to start in. And they are willing to spend hundreds of billions of money to do this in the attempts to discredit God. Which finding anything won't actually do, but they will claim it will and because National Geographic will call them 'scientists', people will believe them.
Besides, why shouldn't they spend all that money? Its not coming out of their pockets, its coming out of ours......
I don't believe in ET, but I do believe in Noah's flood.
I remember hearing (speculative thinking, of course) one theologeon mention God allowing the solar system to pass through a "space water cloud", which contributed at least some of the water causing Noah's flood (Gen. 7:11)
Since Mars is close to the earth, maybe some of that "water cloud" hit Mars as well, resulting in just what we are now beginning to see on that planet.
I know it's a long shot, but given what scripture says, it's still fun to think about.
I`am not a scientist but I`ll try and grasp this, A planet Like a desert has "almost certainly water" via Sky News. The Earth, overflowing with water, just couldn`t have had A world wide flood, right? Hmmm. "The universe must be overflowing with life" a recent Comment from Auntie , hmmm you know who. Theres life out there Jim, But not as we know it. Someones been watching Too many episodes of "StarTrek".
Quote from the article, "NASA says new photos of Mars show very recent erosion that is *PROBABLY* evidence of flowing water, *HINTING AT* an even more dramatic possibility: life"
OK, I've emphasized the words that are operative here. This is not "evidence," this is a theory.
There is no universal law that I know of that says "where there is water, there is life." So even if we find water on Mars, what does that mean? Spend billions of dollars to go there and see if we can find some microbes? Lets let the Europeans do it first. If they find the microbes, they can have them.
This is crazy. Every few months on the news they show a bunch of "scientists" sitting at a table yammering about some obscure, grainy picture that indicates the remote possibility that there could have maybe been water somewhere at some point on Mars. WHO CARES?? Why in the world does anyone care and what possible difference does it make?
I don't care whether they find water, fire or Jimmy Hoffa on Mars. It's not going to affect me one iota one way or another. If they do find water there, SO WHAT?
I have always believed that this is just another of many PR stunts by NASA to justify their existence and continue their lucrative jobs and (no doubt) handsome salaries.
I don't care what's on Mars and I don't care what happens on Mars. I've got my hands full here on earth.
Mike, I think it would be fascinating if they found life as well. It would just prove God is able to create life able to tolerate an environment totally unlike what's on earth.....one more broken link on the evolution chain....always leaving the unbelieving scientist scratching his head.
I've only been as far east as Tennessee...oh, I did go to France...further east, but just kinda flew over you . Time to see NY one of these days.
Aw, now, Mike. Show a little optimism . Well, one thing's for sure: A beautiful view....sort of like Crater Lake, Oregon. Have you been there(Oregon, not Mars)? I don't agree with the search for life(most likely for evolution), but I find colonization of mars and other planets to be interesting.
