Extrasolar Planet Discoveries Produce Speculative Feeding Frenzy

One of the latest findings in astronomy that has gotten many people worked up is the current discovery by the Kepler satellite of an Earth sized planet in the constellation Cygnus. This discovery, has stoked the fires of speculation that our universe is indeed filled to the brim with advanced civilizations, just as Frank Drake and Carl Sagan predicted. “We are not alone in the cosmos” is again being trumpeted by the eagerly optimistic. Here’ a bulletin from NASA about Kepler’s find.

“According to NASA, the planet, known as Kepler-186f, is located approximately 500 light-years away in the Cygnus constellation. While the planet is similar in size to Earth, the star it orbits is vastly different from the sun. As a red dwarf, the star is much dimmer than our sun, meaning that the habitable zone of Kepler-186f is closer to its star than Earth is to the sun.”

Of course the question of “Are We Alone?” has been asked for thousands of years, but it hasn’t been until recently that the technology has been available to try to answer this question. The technology is the Kepler satellite and its subsequent models which have the ability to actually detect planets orbiting distant suns. However, unlike what the public has been told by naturalists, there is much more involved in not only creating life but also in sustaining that life than the science community is telling us. All they have really said is that for life to exist you need an Earth sized rocky planet with liquid water that orbits the habitable zone of a star, along with lots and lots of time. With these conditions in place, they say, you will get advanced life. I suppose most people just fill in the blanks. And folks, there are a lot of blanks.

For years the life origin crowd, who are comprised almost exclusively of Darwin advocates, have been telling anyone who would listen that Darwinian evolution, which allegedly builds animate life from inanimate chemicals is an undeniable scientific fact. These wild speculations are the basis for Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins and others to proclaim that advanced life is everywhere in the cosmos.

Unfortunately, this supposed truth they base their “undeniable fact” on is in reality not real; it’s a misrepresentation at the very least, and they know it. Why am I being so firm about this? This fact was recently confirmed in a videotaped confrontation with the evolutionary biologist Dr. Richard Dawkins and actor Ben Stein. In this confrontation, Dr. Dawkins candidly admits on camera that no one has a clue how life started or even evolved on Earth. This statement is further perplexing because after a hundred plus years of research, theorizing and speculation by the best scientific minds on the planet, no one of has ever adequately explained how life naturally  evolved here.

Since this interview, more and more evidence has piled up against the notion of life from nothing to the point that naturalists have abandoned Darwinian evolution and taken a new theoretical position, the theory of Panspermia. This theory has been adopted by most naturalists and origin advocates today as a convenient way to get them out of the corner they have painted themselves in with Darwin. Dr. Dawkins was actually the first to bring up this ridiculous theory in his interview with Ben Stein What is Panspermia? Panspermia supports the notion that life on Earth was seeded here by an advanced alien species. If you want to see this insanity in action, rent a copy of the movie “Prometheus.” Although somewhat entertaining, the movie is painful to watch.

The reason I call Panspermia insanity and ridiculous, is because there is no evidence whatsoever to support the notion that the laws of physics, biology and chemistry are anything but constant and universally consistent. These laws operate the same and give the same outcomes regardless of where you are in the cosmos. This means, that if life by random chance in our little corner of the universe is impossible, then it’s impossible everywhere. In other words the laws of physics, biology and chemistry work the same regardless of where you are in the cosmos, and further, there is no part of the universe that has magic properties where they will work differently. Since this is true, saying that intelligent life arose by random chance in a different part of the universe, advanced, then that life seeded our planet with its DNA is utter nonsense.

There is also another problem. It takes more than water, and a rocky planet orbiting the habitable zone of a star to make a planet a suitable habitation for nurturing an advanced civilization. The elements that have to be simultaneously present for life on the Earth or anywhere else to exist and thrive over thousands or millions of years  have actually been calculated to be 10 to the 173rd power. This is a number so large that it might as well be infinity.

But wait there’s more. In addition there are three other insurmountable hurdles with no natural explanation. Number one: Where did all the complex information come from that is essential to construct complex life? Information is absolutely essential to manufacture and sustain any complex system, whether it’s mechanical or biologic. Information is not a product or by product of matter.  And two: How did machines evolve in biologic life on Earth? Machines are in fact present in all complex animals from their cellular structures  cells on up. Here is an animation of machines in the DNA molecule to show you what I mean.

Another huge stumbling block for naturalists is that information is not a product or by product of matter. Information, also does not naturally arise from matter. Contrary to Darwin’s theory, information is not matter it is a fundamentally different essential element of all life. Darwin advocates have actually said that if it could be shown that living creatures contained machines that it would completely overturn the theory of evolution.

But it’s not just me that says Darwin’s theory and Dr. Dawkins proclamation is untrue,  Sir Fred Hoyle, noted astronomer, vocal atheist and Darwin advocate has said the same thing. Much to everyone’s surprise he stated in 1981 in an issue of Nature Magazine: “The likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number with 40,000 noughts after it … It is big enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution … if the beginnings of life were not random, they must therefore have been the product of purposeful intelligence.”

The conclusion to all of this is really pretty simple, regardless of how many extra solar Earth sized planets the Kepler Satellite or its followers find, finding a habitable planet with an advanced civilization on it is about as probable as you growing wings this afternoon and flying to Hawaii for the winter.
