I just read this piece from the space.com website: “Are Earthlings from Mars?” The post begins this way:

It’s possible that the family tree of all life on Earth has its roots on Mars — and a new device could put that theory to the test in a few years, researchers say.

Researchers are developing an instrument that would search through samples of Martian dirt, isolating any genetic material from microbes that might be present — bugs that are living or that died relatively recently, within the last million years or so. Scientists could then use standard biochemical techniques to analyze any resulting genetic sequences, comparing them to what we find on Earth.

Sounds interesting, to say the least, but the MIT researcher working on the device already seems to sense it won’t solve anything when it comes to the panspermia issue. His frank admission: “[I]f we go to Mars and find life that’s related to us, we could have originated on Mars. Or if it started here, it could have been transferred to Mars.” So, in other words, if we find a genetic relationship, we haven’t found in which direction it worked. This is a classic panspermia dilemma. The same presumed mechanisms (e.g., meteorites, solar wind) that could have brought Martian microbes here to kickstart life on earth in the evolutionary model could just have well worked the other way.

But still, it’s a pretty interesting research trajectory.

    Hugh Ross wrote almost 20 years ago that they will find microbes on Mars but that they will actually be from when Earth was hit by an asteroid in the distant past projecting tons of dirt into space. He also wrote the Moon has even more, since it’s closer.

    ARE WE FROM MARS

    I am so skeptical about this. Those on the cutting edge are those evolved with the secret space programs who are in bed with aliens (dark side). I don’t believe you can trust an of the data that comes from them. The problem is that they have the floor and toss this data out like it’s the gods truth. I say NOT MY GOD.

    When you step back and take a GOOD LOOK, what you see are plants that have been destroyed, at least the surface of them are un inhabitable THINK ABOUT IS. You have aliens living inside these different spheres in the sky while the Earth is a relative paradise that supports life on the surface. The earth is a very special place and all though aliens (Powers and Principalities) rule and are the real enemy of mankind, it appears that really good forces or the GOD behind it all has been maintaining the earth functions as aliens have continued to downgrade all life forms as they create havoc and mind game their hybrid bloodlines who rule our world today. They HAVE NOT WON mankind is really awesome There is a reckoning coming and it’s not going to be good for the “Powers that Be” and their human hybrids who rule the world right now.

    NOTICE ONE MORE THING, THEY OPERATE IN SECRET, FROM BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, INSIDE THE EARTH AND FROM OTHER DARK DIMENSIONS. SOMETHING IS KEEPING THEM AT BAY. SOMETHING IS MAINTAINING US AND THE EARTH THAT HAS CONTROL OVER THE DARK SIDE. THEY HAVEN’T WON IT JUST LOOKS LIKE THEY HAVE.

    yep; such a find won’t settle a thing.
