I haven’t done anything for The World is Awesome series since May… holy cow! I’m going to bring it back by sharing something truly awesome; Scientists might have discovered water on Mars.
Water is necessary for all living things, as far as we know. (Sorry, M. Night Shyamalan, your movie Signs no longer makes sense.) If water really does exist on the Red Planet, it might be able to sustain microscopic life.
For you lay people, that means itty bitty aliens.
The water is probably salty and briny, but that doesn’t mean life can’t exist there. Hardy organisms in Siberia are able to thrive under similar conditions.
This video explains the scientific evidence:
Personally, I think the existence of aliens is obvious. It’s especially probable from a theological standpoint; surely God wouldn’t go to all the work to make galaxies just so we can look at the sky and say, “Ooo, pretty.”
Is this blasphemous? People only use that word when they don’t want to think.
By the way, I ran a search on “the world is awesome” just to see what I would find, and I discovered this video made by the Discovery Channel. It’s so appropriate, I had to share it... though that dang song is going to be stuck in my head all day.
