Can There Be Life on Kepler-452b?

Some evolutionist owlhoots act like if there is life elsewhere in the universe such as on Kepler-452b, it means Christians should throw away their Bibles, ride into town, and have a good time in the saloon. But they're getting ahead of themselves. We keep hearing about "life elsewhere in the universe", which seems to be implying that the discussion is about sentient beings that are going to wave back to us and say, "Howdy!"

There are other reasons these people are a long ways ahead of themselves. Just because a planet is in the "habitable zone" is not a guarantee that it's suitable for life. Kepler-452b is in the zone, so evolutionists are full of joy that maybe there's liquid water there, and maybe the building blocks of life. Building blocks alone do not make for life, they need to be intelligently and intricately arranged, and assuming that evolution is a fact despite the impossibility of abiogenesis. Then they have to establish that life is there instead of making assumptions; evolutionary presuppositions and assumptions are not evidence of anything. Even if some kind of unintelligent life was actually found there — big deal. Despite the misrepresentations of anti-creationists and evolutionists, such a thing would not disprove the Bible nor negate our Creator, no matter how much they disunderstand and misrepresent God's Word. These folks need to holler, "Whoa!" and think for a spell.
The news media is currently full of the news of the discovery of Kepler-452b, the planet that is supposed to be Earth’s twin. It was discovered using the satellite-borne telescope, Kepler, where the exoplanet was found to be at a distance of about 1400 light-years. It has a mass about five times that of Earth and diameter about 60% larger, hence a gravity nearly double that of Earth. It has a year about 20 days longer than Earth. That makes it the most similar planet to Earth yet and it is located in the habitable zone around its parent star, which is a G-class star, the same class as our sun.

You see pictures . . . of a planet with oceans and land masses and some even with green vegetation drawn in. But none of these are actual images of the planet. It is too far away for such a thing, even with man’s best telescopes.

Life could only arise through a super-intelligence creating it, it would not ‘evolve’ anywhere. Why all the hype? Well, it is the hope of life being found elsewhere. The way it goes is: find an Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone, called the Goldilocks zone—not too hot, not too cold, but just right—the distance from the parent star where water is in its liquid form—detect the presence of water in its atmosphere and that gives you a good chance of finding life.
