    Wow! What an incredible anticipation!
    We here on Earth will be caught off guard because NASA will find life on Mars within the next 2 years!
    We will not be able to handle this truth!

    Dr Jim Green has warned that two rovers from Nasa and the European Space Agency (ESA) could find evidence of life within months of arriving on Mars in March 2021.
    When -- or if -- NASA finds life on Mars, the world may not be ready for the discovery, the agency chief says - CNN
    (CNN)NASA's next mission to Mars will be its most advanced yet. But if scientists discover there was once life -- or there is life -- on the Red Planet, will the public be able to handle such an extraterrestrial concept?

    NASA chief scientist Jim Green doesn't think so.
    "It will be revolutionary," Green told the Telegraph. "It will start a whole new line of thinking. I don't think we're prepared for the results. We're not."


    I can only laugh at this poor highly educated fool!
    he makes it out as iff everyone here on Earth will somehow realize that we all will need to get some psycho therapy IF NASA finds evidence of life!
    What does this guy imply?
    That perhaps all the people on Earth who ever believed in a Creator will now somehow go in depression and commit suicide?
    I remember how old Gilbert Levin claimed that he discovered life on Mars in 1976 when NASA sent the Viking Rovers there. Test after test proved that there was a glitch and error in the initial test, and all scientists up untill today know that Levin did not discover life.

    This old foolish man just never could accept the truth, and went on, and on, and on about his "Evidence".

    Now we have a new Jester in the court!
    Jim Green.
    And he is so sure that he determines we will find life in the next 2 years!!!!

    My question is:
    If 2 years pass, will Jim Green be able to handle the truth?
    perhaps the whole scientific comunity will have too book appointments with their therapists 2 years from now, else they will turn into little Gilbert Levin's!

    Even when one has the worlds best education and experience, you still need to gain wisdom.
    I would like to know if there are others out here that also noticed this silly scientific claims being spread around and what does it mean to you?

    Good heavens, what a diatribe! If life is discovered on Mars, what will happen to you? As to me, personally, I will be excited...especially if the DNA (or whatever it uses) is similar to ours. Or if it isn't. Either way, it's exiting.

    Would your faith be destroyed by such a discovery? Mine wouldn't.

    It also wouldn't if they didn't find life.


    I think they will.

    of corse you will be exited.
    Then you can say that the LDS's claim that life exists on other planets was foretold by us.
    You know, the theory where LDS people will die and get their own planet where they will be god and will populate their own earth.
    I am sitting on the edge of my seat waiting when the first LDS will walk to the Martian Rover and say: "Hi there Earthlings".

    From my point of view, life on Mars will not change anything on me being a Bible believing Christian.
    I think what the scientist wants to do is to say:
    "We found life on Mars, this means evolution is true, now we have evidence that God does not exist!
    This is the only reason why any atheist will even make the silly claims Green made!
    He lives in a small world where the thought of a Creator burns and bubbles his mind every minute of the day.
    The poor man.
    if ever he tells me that, I will reply with Romans 8:21 to 23
    :):cool:

    Anyhow, I am sure there is no life on Mars.
    Science so far agrees with that statement.
    Furthermore, I know there is no life on any other planet in the Cosmos, except here on Earth.

    I have building blocks of life in my body.
    Its called matter.
    :)
    So, if there is no life on Mars, next stop Saturn!
    Semantics such as we suspected that there are building blocks of life, is childish.
    They say:"The NASA scientists behind the new study analysed data on the chemical composition of those plumes, and found several new organic compounds, some containing nitrogen and some containing oxygen."
    Yes!
    Life!
    There is Nitrogen and Oxygen!
    Wow!
    :)o_O
    Mars, Yes! Life! Water! Building blocks!

    No, you did not listen.
    No one said anything about nuts!
    the correct word is: "Life"

    It's almost embarrassing to have to explain this, but ..

    There is a world of difference between
    • Science agrees that there is no life on Mars.
    • Science agrees that it has yet to find evidence of life on Mars.

    Your statement was not simply stupid, it was preposterous.

    I think that's an outdated assessment sort of like a 1950s Panic War of the World type mentality that once alien life is discovered there be rioting in the streets.

    I would say most of us are looking forward to the discovery of life elsewhere and establish the potential of the universe.

    Of course that would grant new concerns as well as excitement but if the case of life is established we just got to remember they've been there all along anyways.

    Most people would embrace it maybe a few would run in circles. ;0)

    I cant agree more.
    I think these scientists are realy inflating the bubbles to somehow gain attention.
    So what if they get life on any planet?
    There is many wonders in the cosmos we dont know about.

    And yet you seem OK that there is no mention of Mars.

    Please be consistent.

    Note the highlighted word in your OP


    As to what he is implying. Religion here on earth has considered itself to be the centre of the universe since day one, it would be a great shock to some to realise this is not so
