Out on a Limb

Let me go out on a limb here-- this purported finding will end up being smoke but no fire, very similar to the fanfare a few years ago over the supposed finding of Martian fossils in Antarctica. That did not hold up to further scrutiny, and my prediction (I hear the drum roll, but not any creaking!) is neither will this.

Unfortunately, even some IDers have drunk the panspermia kool-aid. I'm not shaken by such reports because I always remember this simple truth: God not only created the heavens and the earth, but also the life here out of the dirt and water here. That branch under me looks pretty strong to me!
