[quote] organic means carbon containing and none of that stuff has ANY carbon in it! *glassy compunds* (silicates) include common sand, iron sulphates come from vulcanoes and olivine is another rock! [/quote]

Are you kidding? It hit a bird, hence organic material. B-|

This article wasn`t trying to "prove" anything. The science behind it can`t be b.s. because they clearly state that any scientific results won`t be available for a month. The thing in the beginning about organic matter is just overemphasized by the writer because she wants to draw attention to her article.

Why is everyone so skeptical? No one wanted to believe there are other planets orbiting stars, when common sense dictates in an infinite universe, there are infinite planets... Of course there are organic materials in comets.. Of course there is/was life on Mars, Water is present all over the universe, and interdimensional "travel" or "breaching" happens all of the time. In the next decade or so, our notion of "solar system" and "universe" are going to change dramatically. You heard it from "palm" first.

*coughs* bullpoo *coughs* "SweetCaro09" has a point- this is HARDLY proof... organic means carbon containing and none of that stuff has ANY carbon in it! *glassy compunds* (silicates) include common sand, iron sulphates come from vulcanoes and olivine is another rock!

I know this is not proof, but it might lead to a better understanding.

That and if it does lead to anything, it`ll piss off the intelligent design people... which is always fun to watch...

Also, on a more relevant note, I think that the
"science" in this article is pretty b.s. Yes, there is a remote possibility of this, but it is faaar from proof. It is roughly as likely that we had conditions to form organic matter as it is that other places did, etc etc etc

As much as it pisses me off when other people say "First Post!", it is strangely tempting...
