Oh please, NASA find life/fossils/oil.

Oh I wonder what the Christians will say, if there's evidence of millions-year-old life on Mars....even if it's just microbial.

Anything more than 6k years ago and it didn't happen...TA DA!

Well I think the first question after discovery is "do they share a common ancestor with extant or extinct terrestrial lifeforms?" If yes, not many adjustments to theology need to be made. If no, then it gets a lot more complicated.

That Obama, he's so silly.

Yeah, that was fun. I got a call at 7:45am, just as I was getting in the shower, telling me that President Obama would be doing a video call with the MSL team and could I please make sure the TV servers are handling the load okay and don't crash... nothing like a timely "heads up."

What, Obama and the martians are mad at each other so they've stopped talking, like some high school kids. NASA is that one poor kid who got stuck in Obama's Friend Zone but is still holding out hope.

Man, you people are so gullible! Everyone knows that the only reason 0bama sent that rover up there to begin with was he put his original Kenyan birth certificate on it so Sheriff Joe and his posse couldn't find it.
 
2012-08-13 02:23:36 PM  
In the comments: "If it were the kind of alien we can use as a resource" if they're tasty.

If you don't want to be the last to know, don't work in IT. Getting shat upon with last minute plans and unreasonable expectations is pretty much the job. It's why we get the big buck.

My guess is that they would simply restructure their faith around that little "problem"....you know, like every other time reality blew dogma out of the water.

There's evidence of million-year-old life on earth and it doesn't trip up the creationists, what makes you think changing the planet is going to make a difference?

God put it there and made it look old. End of argument.

The creationist haters are only slightly less delusional than the creationists. NOTHING is going to make them change their mind, no matter how much you wish for it. They could find a goddamn "Abyss" looking alien body on Mars and it won't make a bit of difference to them.

I've been doing this for going on 20 years, I'm aware of how it works by now. And it wasn't that big a deal, they didn't even have to tell me, my servers could handle it. But still, 15 minutes notice for the friggin' President?
 
2012-08-13 03:12:56 PM  
This won't help get rid of that crazy conspiracy theory where Obama visited Mars as a "Chrononaut" using the CIA's "Jump room" in the 80's

The same as always.

I'm more curious what new and crazy conspiracy theories will come up.

Because she's Secretary of State or because she's one of the Lizard People?

If you actually want a plausible life/fossil cover up. It would be that they have already discovered it and asked for the funding to discover it. Excellent results, every time.

It doesn't help you, but you would have had months worth of notice If he was coming to your office instead.

Mostly because she's Secretary of State, but also because her experience landing under sniper fire makes her the ideal official to face off against the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.

EDL was (in no small part) created by a guy who taught physics as a summer class to my elementary/middle school classmates. It was awesome.
Also, I started the classroom on fire with batteries.

Catholic dogma has no issues with extra-terrestrial life. The Bible is taken to refer to God's covenants and interactions with Earth, and other than some vague statements in Genesis, doesn't say much one way or the other about other planets.

I hate to be one of those "Maybe its a rock, maybe its an alien landing pad!" guys... but I'm hoping so damn hard that they find an unusual rock or object, if only to scare congress into giving some of their exploration budget back.
