I wonder why so many so-called forward thinkers find the concept of exo-botany to be something only of fiction. We know of otehr planets here and in other solar systems in which carbon is a common element; and where does carbon come from?
Seems simple to me; am I missing something?
All too often scientists, and even neo/para-scientists tend to get lost in their own air of sophisticated egoism. bruceH
