Cosmic panspermia irrefutable evidence. Quoting: Ford Prefect
Um...not 'irrefutable evidence'. There's a claim
The only 'irrefutable evidence' would be a thorough genetic examination.
For one thing, it's pretty suspect for a 'scientist' to say 'we found microbes on our slide....they can ONLY HAVE COME FROM SPACE!'. Especially when it is absolutely plausible that volcanic eruptions deposit microbes in the stratosphere. Or that his method of having the slide only gather material once in the stratosphere wasn't foolproof.
I am personally interested in the theory of panspermia but this scientist clearly has a dog in the race as he's spent his career trying to prove it.
Now he says 'hey, we sent a balloon up with a slide and it came back with microbes on it, they can ONLY HAVE COME FROM SPACE!!! just trust me ok?'
Conspiracy theorists always seem to lose all their skepticism and clarity of thought when they are told what they want to hear...
