Water on Mars!

We have probable confirmation of water on Mars.

Yes!

Now if the gentiles would only get off their lazy buts and start persecuting us again, maybe I’d be able to get off this stinking planet before I die. Darn gentiles.

    I’m trying to draw the straight line between this story and your recent protestations that you are not and never have been an alien.

    Think of it as less a protestation and more a lament.

    I dunno . . . see this posting (the “Mormon” stuff starts about halfway down). Adam probably denies the network of tunnels running throughout the Rocky Mountain west as well. ..bruce..

    Good robot!

    Ha ha… I almost posted this on the sidebar earlier under the heading “News Adam will get excited about”

    No point in leaving the planet: all the Celestial people are going to end up back here eventually.

    The implications of this may end up being more substantial than some realize:

    There is one possibility the above post left out, cool though it was: the possibility that we will find microbes on Mars, and they get there as a result of being seeded from earth, or vice-versa, in which case there would be no logical bearing on the Fermi assumptions. Many exobiologists currently believe that if we do discover life on Mars the probability of it being related to life on earth is substantial.

  9. Adam Greenwood on June 20, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    Agreed, Glen. If Mars can support microbes, in my opinion microbes of earth origin are almost certainly present

    #8 – Which means God has already begun the creation for the next “earth” once this one gets Kolobized?

  11. Adam Greenwood on June 20, 2008 at 5:02 pm

    Mars is more of a failed earth rather than an earth in the offing, Ray.

  12. Hunter on June 20, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    But what if they’re not nice?!?

    #11 – So it’s fallen already?

    So it’s fallen already.

    Mars is not in a state of paradisiacal glory.

  15. Ray on June 22, 2008 at 12:11 pm

    #14 – That comes after the Fall, right? So, it’s still in the future. *grin*

    Thanks for the lighthearted exchange, Adam. I enjoyed it.

    Since the earth will be raised to a terrestrial state in the Millenium, and then made celestial after 1,000 years, where are the terrestrial and telestial folks going to live? Presumably they would need a physical home to inhabit just as the Celestial folks do. Is Mars a candidate for a future transformation?
