News Flash!.... Star Trek isn't real.
People will deny an Intelligent Designer or God, until they have used up every profane word and personal insult they've ever learned, but then, those same people will quickly accept fairy tales that have space aliens seeding Earth with life. Anti-theist, Richard Dawkins is such a person, and evidently, there are many more... all in the name of so-called science.
Well, actually, pretty much all mainstream scientists consider him a kook.
Well I understand certain pundits and celebrity scientists might try to discredit Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe , I assume the Chandra xray observatory is named after him? So he can't be considered a kook everywhere.
I remember doing some research in this area. If I recall correctly, he speculated that the red particles in the red rain were actually biological organisms. He claims to have grown the organisms in the lab, but apparently he won't provide proof.
The bbc has a nice old documentary about red rain in india , with the view it may have been space organism's, Wickramasinghe was interviewed for that film.
For whatever reason, his theories certainly capture my imagination. And, his lack of adherence to the "process" notwithstanding, I think his theories pass the "smell" test.
