From the X Files: "A Meteroite That Crashed to Earth this December Offers Proof that We are All Aliens"

Sri Lankan-born British mathematician, Chandra Wickramasinghe, discovered that a two-inch wide meteorite that crash landed in a fireball in central Sri Lanka in December was pitted with tiny fossils of algae, similar to the kind found in seaweed. Wickramasinghe, currently Director of the 'Cardiff Centre for Astrobiology', was a student and collaborator of Fred Hoyle. Their joint work on the infrared spectra of interstellar grains led to developing the hypothesis of panspermia that proposes that cosmic dust in the interstellar medium and in comets is partly organic, and that life on Earth was 'seeded' from space.

Wickramasinghe believes the discovery proves we are not alone in the universe: “These finds are crushing evidence that human life started outside Earth.”

The rock was one of several fragments of a meteorite which crash landed in a spectacular fireball and were still smoking when villagers living near the city of Polonnaruwa picked them up. The fossils, discovered when the rocks were examined under a powerful scanning electron microscope in a British laboratory, are similar to micro-organisms found in fossils from the dinosaur age 55 million years ago. Skeptics say the rock had probably become contaminated with algae fossils from Earth.

But Wickramasinghe replies that “The algae organisms are similar to ones found in Earth fossils, but the rock also has other organisms we have not identified.”

“We are all aliens – we share a cosmic ancestry, Wickramasinghe says. "Each time a new planetary system forms, a few surviving microbes find their way into comets. These then multiply and seed other planets. These latest finds are just more evidence to point to the overwhelming fact that life on Earth began on other worlds.”

If you want people to take this seriously, it's advisable to spell-check the title...

Good news though, looking forward to reading the full article :)

On the 15 January 2013 a diatom expert, Patrick Kociolek, verified that the forms pointed out in the paper are indeed diatoms. Then he added:

"There certainly is not any sign of this being fossilized material. (...) the diversity present in the images represent a wide range of evolutionary history, such that the 'source' of the diatoms from outer space, must have gone through the same evolutionary events as here on Earth. There are no extinct taxa found, only ones we would find living today. For me it is a clear case of contamination with freshwater."
—Patrick Kociolek

Calling the alleged fossils "fossils" is questionable, and these are ridiculous claims even if they are indeed fossils. They may be fossils from Earth, firstly. And if they are fossils from space, it does not prove panspermia happens - fossils are dead. And even if it did prove panspermia happens, it does not prove panspermia happened HERE. We may still have originated here, in that scenario; if abiogenesis happened once (necessary for panspermia), it can happen multiple times, and is as likely to have happened here as anywhere else. These wild claims really don't lend credibility to the scientist making them, or his analysis of the material in question.

We keep reading of meteorites of Martian origins, Martians, if they existed, would likely find meteorites of Earthly origins. Is it possible that this is a bit of the Earth blasted into space in the distant past and just now finding its' way home?

Many plants reproduce by releasing the necessary information to the wind and hope the seedling finds a home somewhere. Sometimes the seedling travels great distances until it finds a home. They are dispersed by wind, water and other lifeforms like bees and even humans. This is how isolated islands originally received plant migration. Picture the lonely palm tree on the tiny cartoon island for one. The tree didn't just appear by magic. It had to take a grand journey for its existence on an isolated island.

Humans and other mobile life can move around the planet freely, but once you leave the atmosphere, we are as helpless as the plants. It is possible that nature intended for the information of life to be preserved naturally for eons as it floats around space. Pro - it makes logical sense for nature to spread life from planet to planet similarly to the way a seedling might take root thousands of miles from its parent tree. Con - It doesn't seem like objects containing the information of life move around the universe fast enough to be the primary means of distributing life. Also, this theory implies that life had to originate away from earth. To me that further implies life had to originate in a single location. So we are either in the vicinity of where it all started, or life originated near the big bang singularity and spread faster than light through the expansion of space, giving the entire universe a shot at life.

Most life on earth does not spread through exotic means (compare this theory with the 'Chariots of the Gods' theory where aliens spread life to earth like bees on a larger scale). It's just an option for the more limited lifeforms. But we are all limited to the shell of our atmosphere and in a way, we are all like plants in the grand scheme of the universe. Nature preserves life for the long term in interesting ways on earth. It is not at all far-fetched to think that nature has taken some long-term preservation measures for some of its most treasured and/or anomalous creations.

You no say? :O
That's a no new theory or assumption

Extraterrestrials could land in these skeptics back yard screw their dog, slap his wife while jumping up and down on the hood of his car and these cowards would still deny it. Mankind is doomed.

Idea for discusson: Should scientists try to build a aseroid and test it at the space station if animal eggs can live inside rocks? With different test scenarios...we should have enough idea of how it could work that a test scenario in space might prove it correct....or incorrect? i.e. water shielding, enclosed environment? I'm thinking ape tests like in the 60s we sent apes into outer space. It might also help to know this so we can search for asteriods that are floating around with similiar successful 'test' characteristics. Lastly, is it our responsibility to seed humans ...ie send(seed) rocks in all directions into the universe?

Looks like we're just going to have to take a microscope up into space and sample like crazy. This kind of thing will never convince the establishment. Not unless something with tentacles crawl out of the rock it seems.
