Saw this on tv tonight and found the article online; makes for some interesting reading...

can you give us a brief synopsis? Some of us are real busy here and it would help if you give us some kind of idea what our time will be spent on. I do know Carl Sagan always said "we are star stuff" in his series cosmos is that what this is all about??

Will do, It goes something like this; Scientists have found traces of DNA/RNA neucleotides on a meteor which crashed here in 1969 and from this they have discovered that DNA can only naturally occur when using a specific type of Carbon atom which can only be found outside of earth, they debunked the idea of life originating from a primordial ooze here on Earth as our native carbon atoms have proven too heavy for the natural synthesis of neucleotides.

read the terrapapers... this just confirms it. We have dna that is not from here.. it is mixed with earthly dna .. but some of it is from another star system.... Great find!

Haha! Alienstar, that's one of those jokes that's so bad, it's hilarious - this just in; no, it's not.

Nah, just kiddin - or maybe not!

That's not correct. They didn't say human DNA/RNA contains the 'wrong' carbon. Normal Carbon is C12 and we are made from that. The heavier Carbon 13 isotope occurs mainly in space. They said that the nucleobases found in the meteorite contained C13, which is more normal in ET molcules. Because Earth's 'primordial soup' is now believed to have been too simple it is thought to be an unlikely source of DNA/RNA nucleotides. So, the ET source is a distinct possibility. The origins of life may well have been seeded on Earth by meteorites (see Panspermia Theory)
Human DNA, being synthesised from Earthly carbon sources, contains essentially the normal lighter isotope C12. However, the fact is we are indeed made from star stuff - as Sagan describes in Cosmos. All the matter in the universe, all the different atoms, from helium to the heaviest metals, were all created in the stars from hydrogen. We came from the stars, but not quite in the way you described.

BIBLICAL EVIDENCE that we come from God maker of heaven and earth. Read the Bible it will tell you where we come from and much more! And this is a fact!

Thanks for pointing that out (and the wiki link) WG3, as for Redsonya, I respect your right to your OPINION, but just because you read a book that says we were created thousands of years ago doesn't make it FACT.

One word, dinosaurs.

Looks like Moby had it right all along.

I believe panspermia is likely.

But I don't rule out the possibility of external intelligent influence too.
