In Al Capone’s vault, maybe?
Well, it actually wasn’t Geraldo … I’m just telegraphing the degree of buffoonery I attribute to this prediction by a “top Russian astronomer.” Yeah, like he knows this is going to happen. What a bunch of twaddle.

That’s as useful as that May 21st “virtual doomsday” we all just experienced.
“The genesis of life is as inevitable as the formation of atoms … Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years,” said Andrei Finkelstein
This is so laughable it isn’t funny. The first thing you learn in first year high school chemistry is that atoms are a “mathematical and philosophical construct that seems to work for what we need.” That was a direct quote from my instructor who is 100% atheist and a 20+ year experienced U of Michigan biochemist.
They’ve never seen an atom so if you are going to base your argument off of that you are really starting out on the wrong foot. I asked questions like “if protons are positive and repel why doesn’t an atom’s nucleus explode apart” or “why don’t the electrons collapse into the nucleus if opposites attract?” I get stunned looks, no answers and being a science teacher I find it hard to believe the reactions I get.
You have to wonder what prompts scientists to say such things.
It has to do with them pushing their worldview to fit their thesis so that they can continue to get grant money. If they discovered that their data shows no evidence of alien life then their grant money to look for alien life would be cut. It’s quite simply an example of economics and self preservation, along with a nice dose of ego. I wonder if he can be considered “published” now.
nice – this one made me chuckle!
