WASHINGTON (AFP) – Top NASA scientists said Monday there was no scientific evidence to support a colleague's claim that fossils of alien microbes born in outer space had been found in meteorites on Earth. The US space agency formally distanced itself from the paper by NASA scientist Richard Hoover, whose findings were published Friday in the peer-reviewed Journal of Cosmology, which is available free online. "That is a claim that Mr Hoover has been making for some years," said Carl Pilcher, director of NASA's Astrobiology Institute.
What? I'm no expert, but one would think it not too hard to tell the difference between contamination from Earth and alien microbe fossils that were on or inside a meteor.
He claims that the fact that the meteor struck the earth means that the microbes are in fact 'contamination' from the earth itself.
I suppose when they are no longer the majority. Majority rules, therefore stupid rules.
I think this is hilarious. For the love of humanity. When is the government and it's associates gonna quit catering to religion and the idiots of the world.
Paul Hertz, chief scientist of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington, also issued a statement saying NASA did not support Hoover's findings.
"While we value the free exchange of ideas, data and information as part of scientific and technical inquiry, NASA cannot stand behind or support a scientific claim unless it has been peer-reviewed or thoroughly examined by other qualified experts," Hertz said.
"That is a claim that Mr Hoover has been making for some years," said Carl Pilcher

First thing I thought was how does a rock that smashes into earth not get contaminated?
Well guess I'm not the only one.
Still interested to hear the lack of nitrogen explained though.

Meh. I guess this is being swept under the rug, as per usual.
