That Ground-Breaking, Earth-Shattering Arsenic-Based Life Story

"Scientists see fatal flaws in the NASA study of arsenic-based life," reports Carl Zimmer — "This Paper Should Not Have Been Published" — about the story religion reporter David Gibson laughably suggests "signals an end to religious faith" — Does a New Life Form Mean God Is Dead?

Moral of the story: get the government out of science and don't let religion reporters report on science, or religion for that matter.

As Mark Shea famously says, "God, under carefully controlled laboratory conditions, can do whatever he likes." As for myself, I held the suspicion that, if confirmed, this represents the end of the Darwinist Epistemological Error, which states that "nothing created something that mutated slowly into everything."

Darwinism dies hard, of course, and its faithful run quick to defend it against criticism. There is also that motive to consider too.

But your points are quite valid, as both NASA and the TV Programmers both had egg on their faces many a time.
