The "life always finds a way" is my add but has anyone noticed that the better our instruments get and the more our scientist get out of their labs new form of life; call them "Extremophiles" in the current scientific vernacular..... but to them I would guess they think it is normal...if they think which is doubtful but nevertheless there be LIFE.


The analysis of methane hydrate — known as “flammable ice” — found that microscopic bubbles of oil and water within sheets of frozen gas and ice hold microscopic living creatures. It was completely unexpected. Space.com has a full report:

“In combination with the other evidence collected by my colleagues, my results showed that even under near-freezing temperatures, at extremely high pressures, with only heavy oil and saltwater for food-sources, life was flourishing and leaving its mark,” Dr. Stephen Bowden said. Bowden works at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the School of Geosciences.

Fascinating stuff, but it makes me wonder if life has to gain a foothold in more hospitable environments and then evolve to be able to handle harsher environments, or if it can start from scratch in these extreme places.

There is a difference between life starting in those environments, which would be finding a way, and already existing and simply able to survive in said environment.

This type of "Life exists everywhere" situation is why I would not be surprised whatsoever if life is everywhere, in space too.

Good things microbes can't see humans.

Because that would indicate a likelihood that humans would have awareness of their macrobes.

If you look at the evolution of life,there has to be a lot of coincidences and things go right for life to flourish.Many types of micro life died out due to conditions not being right..
