No Aliens announced yet but, as Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko approaches its closest point to the Sun, new findings from Rosetta have detected a high porosity, icy environment teaming with organic compounds in a landscape surrounded in an atmosphere of gas, dust and plasma. The extended mission is sure to bring more surprises as data pours in.



Many of these compounds are key ingredients for life, and four of them, Propanal, Propanone, Ethanamide, and Isocyanatomethane have never been detected on a comet. This can give us great insight into the origins of life, and help researchers determine the chemistry involved in generating none living compounds to living compounds.



On July 29th Rosetta’s OSIRIS narrow-angle camera captures images of the Comet spewing out gasses, dust and organics into the solar system.




On 29 July, Rosetta observed the most dramatic outburst yet, registered by several of its instruments from their vantage point 186 km from the comet. They imaged the outburst erupting from the nucleus, witnessed a change in the structure and composition of the gaseous coma environment surrounding Rosetta, and detected increased levels of dust impacts.
Perhaps most surprisingly, Rosetta found that the outburst had pushed away the solar wind magnetic field from around the nucleus.

What a strange time in human history, while science is on the verge of discovering life outside our blue bubble and indeed may unravel the secrets of life itself, there are people still clinging onto mythology to describe reality.
Sad really..

Controlled panspermia events always comes to mind when considering celestial objects like this that may contain building blocks of life.
Locate- region
Then launch the seeds that will grow in that specific region...
The intelligence that would be required to do such would be/seem mythical.

Unfortunately, I can only see more noise from those who use mythology to describe reality. More population? Certainly not. The ill informed and ignorant, yet intelligent members of those groups will only tend to escape those delusions as education becomes more apparent and available.

However, the few that desperately cling to their fairy-tales-for-adults will only lash out in an attempt to obtain themselves from accepting reality.

Bring your earplugs, it's going to be loud.

How do you know the comet didn't originate from Earth?

Unfortunately (for you), life existing outside of our own solar system does not in any way prove that "God" does not exist.

Nice find, I love all this space stuff and the sentiment at the end made me a little frisky lol I agree and would like to sign up to your newsletter sir!

Unfortunately for me? I never said anything about a creator, such gods exits only in a vacuum of evidence. I'm open to the possibility of a creator, understanding natures process does in no way rule out a creator.

I don't, but my vote would be it originated from the Kuiper Belt, knocked from it's orbit and crossed into the inner solar system.

so this was purely an unintentional jab at who, exactly?

People have used myths, analogies, and parables to describe reality since they've been people. They will continue to do so as long as they are people.

Assuming that a belief in a particular religion automatically makes one incapable of comprehending a cosmos teeming with life is a bit presumptuous, don't you think?

If you have not noticed there are plenty of creationist in these forums that have a tenuous grasp on reality at best.
So.. yes, a particular religion can make one incapable of comprehending a cosmos teeming with life, among other things as origins.
Stick around or read every other thread in this forum and enjoy the lunacy.

And, you never answered my question.
what do mean "Unfortunately (for you)," You want to explain this?

Isn't that a big non-sequitor? This doesn't disprove leprechauns either. It does not disprove pixies, elves, fairies, unicorns, Xanadu, dropbears or hyper-intelligent shades of the colour blue.

These things are disregarded as being real because of the lack of evidence for their existence, not because of some fanciful 'disproof'.

If a tornado passes through a junkyard full of car parts 10 billion times, do you think it'll ever build a functioning car?

Please. This is a well recognised fallacy in logic, called Hoyle's Fallacy or the Junkyard Fallacy. It relies on a mischaracterization of evolution as being random when it is not (mutations are random, but they are acted upon by non-random natural selection).

It also assumes the ultimate goal of evolution is complex living organisms - another misconception.

The assumption that the only alternative is an intelligent designer is also a false dichotomy and an argument from ignorance.

Abiogenesis is not a process of evolution as I am reminded every time the topic of creationism comes up.

You're the one who bought it up, whether in regards to evolution or to abiogenesis the fallacy is the same. How do you know the molecular processes which lead to the perfection of DNA itself wasn't subject to it's own non-random selection process anyway? How do you know it was random? You don't and it very likely wasn't.

I resent that! It will at least build a rudimentary mouse trap. From evolution we will then get the car!

I propose this is moved to the Hoax bin; after all all you've shown is a comet. Something to do with the T & Cs
