NASA’s Curiosity rover is set to attempt a landing on Mars on Sunday, August 5, in the ongoing effort to find evidence of life on the red planet or evidence that life could have evolved there. The $2.5 billion project is a technological marvel, even if it crashes, because simply to send a spacecraft from earth to Mars, a 154-million-mile journey, is a major feat it itself and is clear evidence that man did not arise from the animal kingdom. The best trained, sign-reading-qualified top-of-his-class ape can’t even conceive of a space craft, let alone build one and get it to Mars.
The size of a small car, the Curiosity is decked out with a power drill, rock-zapping laser, and an onboard lab to detect organic compounds, all with the objective of exploring whether the planet “ever had the right environment for microorganisms to take hold” (“NASA to Athletic Mars Rover,” USA Today, July 20, 2012). Here NASA leaves the world of real science that it used to create its space program and enters the world of evolutionary myth, which is based on nothing but empty presuppositions. There is zero scientific evidence that life arose from non-life, that intelligence arose from non-intelligence, or that great intelligence arose from low intelligence.
Such ideas are not even theories, because not only do they lack evidence but they are contrary to proven scientific facts. Thus, evolutionists haven’t progressed any further than Percival Lowell, the astronomer who “saw” canals on Mars. See “Percival Lowell’s Martians” in tomorrow's blog.
