14. How can people see this and not see that life on Earth came from somewhere else?
Its the "island effect", they've already proven it with the Mars microbes recovered from Antarctica, the planet has been bombarded with matter containing life forms from the cosmos since the day it formed. As soon as the Earth cooled enough, the life forms hitchhiking on the cosmic debris started to bubble and ooze.
