Many are convinced there are alien life forms out there…Scientists have went from searching for advanced beings to micro-organisms but have yet to produce on shred of evidence on either one. Now there is another way being promoted…In Physorg…
“She said several of the scientists involved in the project were interested in pursuing the notion, which Davies laid out in a 2007 Scientific American article, “Are Aliens Among Us?” So far, there’s no answer. And finding one would be fraught with difficulties, as Davies himself acknowledged. Unusual organisms abound – including chemical-eating bacteria which dwell deep in the ocean and organisms that thrive in boiling-hot springs – but that doesn’t mean they’re different life forms entirely.”
Shostak calls himself a scientist, but what accomplishments has he done? What he calls as “science” is not. Single point conclusions with observables is not science but rather storytelling. Shostak is basically telling the public is don’t believe in the miracles God rather believe in the miracles of materialism. Dead chemicals became alive even though it’s never been observed, because we are here? That’s not science!
Without observables like HNA or ANA (something like human DNA) for alien life forms to draw inference from, there is no foundation or basis for the belief! Instead, he tells this story about how aliens could be not only living among us but also inside of us. What makes him think aliens even exist at all and why just at the micro level? Believing in human evolution is not evidence, believing in the big band is not evidence, believing in one animal turning into a totally different animal isn’t evidence for alien life forms.
This also has to do with relevance for the purpose of funding. The micro world is vast with many unknowns that have yet to be discovered and many things that will never been discovered. While the public at large does have an interest, it’s still not science nor relevant or practical to spend millions upon millions of hard earned dollars looking for something that they are totally in the dark about.
