Astrobiology and the Other Richter Scale

Purveyors of universal common ancestor evolution cannot explain the origin of life on Earth, so they give the problem to their imaginary invisible friends, the space aliens. Evolutionists presuppose their belief system, and then insist that life must have not only originated, but evolved somewhere far away. Then they want to commence with conversation. That's assuming the aliens exist, are advanced enough to receive and send signals, everyone's using the proper signals, they want to talk in the first place, and so on. Not to mention the time lag, since they are supposedly zillions of light years away.

The search for extraterrestrials is getting more desperate for evolutionists.

There was a time that people played the odds (the so-called Fermi Paradox) and insisted that life had to exist on other worlds. Problem is, the more scientists learn about the hazards of space and the "habitable zone", the less likely those odds are going to play out. From a biblical creationist perspective, most of us reject ETs on both scientific and theological grounds.

Some of those jaspers get all het up about alien life, saying how it will be one of the most important discoveries for humanity. Maybe they'll dazzle us with their know-how. I lack belief that such a claim is true. Farmers will still have to farm, medical professionals will still have to do medical stuff, delivery drivers will still have to drive, politicians will still have to do whatever it is they do — you get the idea. I also think that if we found alien life, they would still go around doing alien stuff like they were before.

Reading the speculations about the search for life out there — well, it seems increasingly desperate. There is a prairie schooner-full of words like "maybe", "could be", "perhaps", "scientists think possibly", and so on. It sounds like schoolchildren playing make-believe, which is not such a faulty analogy. F'rinstance, Jupiter may have been a watery world before it became a gas giant, and water means life, hey presto! Or, globular cluster like Omega Centauri could — oh, wait. No they couldn't.

If I told my boss that although I had zero production, I had papers describing how wonderful it would be if I actually worked, just give me more time and eventually I'll produce results — you can guess how long I'd be employed. Alien enthusiasts want our tax dollars for a "science" that has no results and really has no right to exist; you can't have a science without something to study, old son. They had to move on and go with donations, but they hope to get more government handouts like other Darwinists who produce nothing. 

They even has a scale of importance, and this importance is entirely subjective. Sure is a lot of work to deny special creation and to reject the Creator who gave us life! Dr. Henry Richter has a list of important factors for habitability, and making a "Richter Scale" with reasonable estimates makes ET unlikely to phone home, have a home, or exist in the first place.
Should the government fleece taxpayers again for a project with almost zero chance for success? Consider two “Richter scales” that should inform hopes.

NASA has gritted its teeth ever since SETI went on the government-funding chopping block in the 1990s. They keep titillating the public with hopes for finding their invisible friends in space. Microbes are not enough, even though NASA gets loads of money for “astrobiology,” the big-tent search for even one-celled life. They want someone to talk to. Let’s see how they express their motivations:
