Not unlike a religious viewpoint.
Waiting for absolute undeniable proof of microbes
embedded in meteorites?
Most likely many examples have been staring right at us.
I know it's protocol but scientists are numbers buffs and without a
mathmatical doubt the universe is overflowing with life.
To say we'll wait for the ridiculously vetted results gone over again and again
before we agree to life outside this planet is silly rigor.
Yes I know that's the way science works, (or doesn't )
But this 'nope...not true till We say so' when they could say "Probably"
is about as dense as a meteorite.
I'll take my lashings now.
