New evidence emerges on the origins of life

“New research shows that the close linkage between the physical properties of amino acids, the genetic code, and protein folding was likely the key factor in the evolution from building blocks to organisms when Earth’s first life was emerging from the primordial soup.”- Science Daily

They are getting close! And fundamentalists are getting nervous. What if? 

Here in Toledo and interesting lecture will be held on Wednesday with the curious title, Vast Universe: Extraterrestrials and Christian Revelation. Two points. It will be held at a Catholic university and the speaker is Catholic priest, Fr. Thomas O’Meara. That title is in fact the title of his book. O’Meara wonders both about the religious beliefs of these extraterrestrials as well as whether other incarnations of the Spirit (Jesus) have taken place in space. Bold stuff!

Science, science fiction, theology and psychology all blended together. One prominent question that arises that begs to be asked. Must an incarnation of God be killed in supplication for the sins of the people on the planet in order to free them from moral death?

No doubt my friend and frequent commenter Up the Flag will find this post worthless and blasé, yet inquiring (right-brains) want to know!

  1. Oh Boy! Where to begin…..Yep, I read the first sentence and thought, here he goes again…..Then the last sentence, lol…

    But, you know, living down here in the deep South, the Bible Belt South,
    they don’t have to deal with the question you proposed, right? And, as
    for me? I think you ought to know.

    I am sure, M_R, that you recognize that it is difficult to understand a culture
    aloof from it…I have now lived in this Deep South religious culture for 30 years….I live in it….if I make a pilgrimage North in August we cantalk about it…It would take a tome here!
