Are we the only living beings in the universe? A discovery by a NASA scientist says: perhaps not. Richard B. Hoover, Ph.D. found “microfossils” of bacteria within a meteorite that could only have originated with the meteorite, not picked up later on Earth. From the Journal of Cosmology, which published Dr. Hoover’s paper:

“Dr. Hoover has discovered evidence of microfossils similar to Cyanobacteria, in freshly fractured slices of the interior surfaces of the Alais, Ivuna, and Orgueil CI1 carbonaceous meteorites. Based on Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM) and other measures, Dr. Hoover has concluded they are indigenous to these meteors and are similar to trichomic cyanobacteria and other trichomic prokaryotes such as filamentous sulfur bacteria. He concludes these fossilized bacteria are not Earthly contaminants but are the fossilized remains of living organisms which lived in the parent bodies of these meteors, e.g. comets, moons, and other astral bodies. The implications are that life is everywhere, and that life on Earth may have come from other planets.”

It has been my experience that to even entertain the idea that there is life of any sort on other planets is to be regarded as a kook and “unscientific,” prone to flights of fancy. I have always found this consensus viewpoint of modern society — especially one who always points to the pre-Gallieo position that the world revolves around the Earth to be ludicrous and evidence of the stifling nature of organized religion — to be so close minded to the possibility of alien lifeforms.

And yet we have a pop-culture *obsessed* with alien life and extraterrestrial allegory. Deep down we *know* there is something other than us in the universe, we understand it intuitively. But those beliefs are discouraged and suppressed by society, and thus emerge all over our entertainment (where it’s considered fantasy and therefore *safe* to contemplate).

Also of note is that this discovery might mean life on our planet could have originated somewhere else in the universe, with fragments of comets and meteorites acting almost like “space sperm.” This might mean that the same bits of proto-life dumped on our planet by various space debris could have caused similar life-forms — perhaps humanoid — on other planets.

The bottom line: humans might *not* be the center of all life in the universe. Deal with it.

 The bigger story from this news report of a judge in the UK who got busted for very strange adult material on his computer is that there is apparently such a thing as “frog porn.”

Michael Hall, from Rotherham, South Yorks was sentenced to 144 days of treatment for sex offenders for possessing photos and videos of women having sex with a variety of critters, including, most notably, frogs.

Frogs are amphibians, and should not be engaging in sex with humans.

Hall was governor of three schools and member of various councils involving children; I suppose we should be a bit relieved that no kids were involved with the dastardly porn on his laptop, though a PETA-type might not feel reassured by this fact.
