|Science in the news: Ahead to Mars, or back to Babel?|
I'm not sure how the subject came up, but in my recent interview with Dr. James Dobson we somehow began talking about Mars. I mentioned that the discovery of the remains of life on Mars was inevitable because of the proximity of Mars to Earth. I briefly outlined a few ways by which Earth life-forms could be transported to Mars, e.g. by the solar wind and by the debris from large meteorite collisions (Facts & Faith, v. 2, n. 3, 1988, pp. 1-2, and v. 3, n. 2, 1989, p. 2). I went on to say that many scientists who are either ignoring or ignorant of these interplanetary transport mechanisms have publicly touted the future discovery of life (or life remains) on Mars as proof that life does indeed evolve, and quite easily, by natural processes.
