Life Discovered on Mars
Thursday, February 09, 2017
Can you imagine the excitement in the scientific community at that news? Life has been discovered on Mars. In a dark crevice on a hillside, that oscillates between extreme cold and extreme heat as the red planet rotates and orbits the sun, a NASA robot has discovered a bacterium.
What a story that would be.
The U.S. government has spent billions of tax dollars, maybe trillions over the years, to track down a life form of some kind anywhere besides Earth. If NASA doesn’t find a bacterium, a virus would probably suffice though it is unsure exactly what kind of lifeform a virus would be. To be alive, something must replicate. A virus can replicate but it has to have a host, like a cell. Bacteria, on the other hand, can replicate without a host.
Finding life somewhere out there, somewhere besides Earth, might prove to evolutionary biologists that we really are simply a product of evolution, an ancient accident of sorts. It just happened magically on Earth, and magically on Mars too. Generation of life could become commonplace, even in the most impossible of atmospheres.
President Bill Clinton thought we found life on Mars while he was President. On August 7, 1996, because of the discovery of a small meteorite in Antarctica in 1984, President Clinton had this to say:
It is well worth contemplating how we reached this moment of discovery. More than 4 billion years ago this piece of rock was formed as a part of the original crust of Mars. After billions of years it broke from the surface and began a 16 million year journey through space that would end here on Earth. It arrived in a meteor shower 13,000 years ago. And in 1984 an American scientist on an annual U.S. government mission to search for meteors on Antarctica picked it up and took it to be studied. Appropriately, it was the first rock to be picked up that year -- rock number 84001.
Today, rock 84001 speaks to us across all those billions of years and millions of miles. It speaks of the possibility of life. If this discovery is confirmed, it will surely be one of the most stunning insights into our universe that science has ever uncovered. Its implications are as far-reaching and awe-inspiring as can be imagined. Even as it promises answers to some of our oldest questions, it poses still others even more fundamental.
I suppose it was embarrassing when the story was investigated and determined to be untrue.
The small meteorite everyone was so excited about, was “thought” to be from Mars and is named ALH84001 after its discoverer, Allan Hills. It was discovered under electron microscopy that some structures of the meteorite resembled possible “bacteria-like” fossils. However, the “lifeform” was smaller than any cell known to man.
What do you think the scientific community would think had the Martian robot found a chicken egg? Can you imagine?
An egg would certainly be more of a lifeform than a theoretical nanobacterium smaller than any cell ever discovered at this point? Life Found on Mars would definitely be the headline, and should. An egg is certainly a sign of life to the scientific community, at least on Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus.
Isn’t it odd then, that so many scientists do not consider an egg as life on our own planet?
Suppose the Martian robot had found a human fetus on Mars? Now that would be proof of life for sure.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States. This means they kill more fetuses than any other company, clinic or healthcare (what a joke) group. If they were located on Mars and doing the same, there would be an uproar. Down here on Earth, it’s just another day. We have been brainwashed by the left in our society (Hollywood, school teachers and professors, news journalists and our government and universities) into believing that what would be life on Mars is really not life on Earth.
It was our Supreme Court that ruled in 1973 that a woman’s right to privacy outweighed the life of the lifeform and could thereby kill the lifeform if she so wishes with no penalty. The fetus is penalized though, because they become an ex-lifeform.
Our Declaration of Independence does not give citizens the right to happiness but only the right to pursue happiness. It does not say we are all equal, only that we were created equal. If a right to pursue happiness happens to infringe on someone else’s pursuit of their happiness, like the baby who is being killed, shouldn’t there be pause?
Abortion in the United States has decreased the past few years. We are only aborting 1,500,000 human lifeforms a year instead of 2-million. Isn’t that nice.
Approximately 40-million human lifeforms are killed every year in the world. It has to stop.
When the Supreme Court decided in 1973 that fetal life was not supreme at all unless they were alien beings, many in the community, especially the church and synagogue communities, felt agony. They knew God was not going to be happy. Doom and gloom would come, God’s wrath would be here any day and the world would finally repent. Then life and lifeforms would go on.
But it didn’t happen. Forty-four years later, we are still feeding the abortion frenzy. Thanks to our new President Trump, at least we the taxpayer will no longer have to pay for the destruction of the lifeforms.
But wait! God’s wrath may come and we don’t recognize it because it comes slowly. He is very patient, and a day to us is an eternity for Him. Have there been more disasters in the world since 1973 than at other times throughout history? Here is a partial list from CBC News, and the answer is a resounding affirmative:
Aug. 5, 1975: 85,000 killed in Chinese floods.
July 28, 1976: 242,00-655,00 killed, Tangshan, China, earthquake.
1984-1985: Famine killed at least one million in Ethiopia.
November 13-14, 1985: A 25,000 in Colombia, volcano eruption.
July 15, 1991: Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines erupted. More than 800 died.
October 26-Nov. 4, 1998: 11,000 killed in Honduras and Nicaragua, Hurricane Mitch, 2.5 million homeless.
December 26, 2003: 35,000 killed in Bam, Iran earthquake.
December 26, 2004: 240,000 killed in Indonesia earthquake and tsunami that followed.
October 8, 2005: 80,000 people in earthquake struck, Pakistan.
May 3, 2008: Cyclone Nargis, 100,000 dead, Burma.
May 12, 2008: 70,000 people killed, 18,000 missing in earthquake, Sichuan, China.
January 12, 2010: 230,000 Haitians killed in earthquake.
July-August 2010: Monsoon floods kill 1700 in Pakistan.
1980 to present: 25,000,000 dead, 40,000,000 infected, AIDS.
This is a lot of wrath when the numbers are totaled. Maybe The Almighty thinks differently about fetal lifeforms than mankind? Death is death.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:13-16 NIV
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 NIV
Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Psalm 127:3 NIV
When Jesus told us to love one another as we love ourselves, that pretty much ruled out abortion. Will we repent? Doubtful. Will the world repent? Don’t think so. Like the people of Nineveh, we keep getting chances; but it seems mankind has eyes that do not see; ears that do not hear.
