WorldNetDaily: Physicist: Cell-like structures could be microbes from space

And so it begins: a person trained in scientific method, one who should know better, finds some highly unusual extremophiles--extremophiles which, furthermore, contain no DNA but which replicate in water under tremendous heat and pressure. And he concludes that they are extraterrestrial in origin.

People do tend to believe what they want to believe. Indeed not all extremophiles are microbes, and some are bacteria. The only thing unusual about Godfrey Louis' find is that the alleged organism contains no DNA--a finding which itself is in dispute.

The larger question is: why the interest in extraterrestrial life? I know why. This is part of the campaign to deny God, and perhaps have us believe in ancient astronauts again.
