Life on Mars?

Well, last night’s evening news showed some scientists at NASA who were simply giddy over the “discovery” of water on Mars. This, they posited, was evidence that life could exist on Mars, because water is essential to life. I’m no physicist (bio-, astro- or otherwise) however, I do have a couple of questions:

  1. If life did not originate on this planet as described in the Bible (the only account of creation which has not suffered multiple revisions) where did it come from? Evolution offers no answer to that essential question.
  2. Why would water be essential to life on Mars? If evolution were true, wouldn’t life evolve in whatever environment was present? The evolutionists tell us that fish evolved into land animals because oxygenated air existed outside the water. Well, if there were no oxygen in the air, wouldn’t the fish continue on anyway? And, presumable, evolve into higher forms of life right where they were.

You see, with no physical evidence of the actual event of creation, it takes faith to accept the manner and method of where life originated and how it came to be here on Earth. Some say it is easier to believe God created it all. On some levels that is true, but I don’t believe in God because it is easy. I believe in God and the account of His creation, His love and Salvation, because at every step of the way, He has shown Himself worthy of that faith.

He gives peace and comfort in difficult times. It hasn’t always been easy – but it’s always been worth it.

    By that logic animals would eventually evolve in places where there was no food, and not need food. And in places where there was no air, and they wouldn’t need air. You’d have birds who evolved into not needed air – swarming around in space. And, I suppose, there would eventually be evolution in places where it is too hot for life, you might have (by the logic above) , some animals living right in the sun! There is a new movie out called “Journey To The Center of The Earth” – its really good.

    Designz23 – First, welcome to the blog. All of the things you mentioned are certainly logical possibilities in a world without rules as evolution calls for. The rules, or requirements, evolve as time (multiple billions of years). So, if evolution were true – all of those would seem to be possibilities. To say there are some pre-determined criteria for life implies there is a Determiner which brings us back to the core of the discussion – there is a God and He rules.

  4. It’s good that the question has finally been answered. However, it’s not all that simple. They’ve also found an oxidizing substance that they say is “detrimental” to us. We’ve got a long way to go before we can actually see a benefit in the red planet.
