Hopes for Extraterrestrial Life Dimming

Every once in a while, we learn that particles-to-planetologist scientists will effectively say, "Hold up there, Luke. You're saddling up the wrong horse!" In other words, they'll realize that certain ideas they have should be discarded instead of making excuses and sewing on more patches. (Of course, they still cling to evolution itself.) It's nice to see some scientific integrity now and then.

In their efforts to find extraterrestrial life, scientists put forth conjectures, then have to put out still more conjectures. They refuse to realize that the best place for life is this planet, that God created for a purpose.

The pseudoscience of astrobiology is a part of the search for life on other planets, and they come up with some interesting speculations. Later, those are replaced because the facts tend to be obstreperous. (For example, if a planet is in the "habitable zone", it's not necessarily habitable.) Space "weather" ruins chances for life out there, as well as radiation, and some exoplanets may look good, but they're still too hot. The simple reason that they're having such a passel of hassle getting any hope of finding extraterrestrial life is that God put us here, and set up Earth to be inhabited and protected.
