Another Alleged Earth-Like Planet Discovered

Astrobiologists are promoting their pseudoscience like chariot racers in the Circus Maximus, hoping to find evidence of habitable planets in deep space. Although they fail every time and their hopes are dimming because the habitable zone has multiple caveats, bio-astrologers keep on a-trying.

Secular astronomers are cheering yet another exoplanet discovery. They keep searching for signs of life despite evidence against it.

The desire is to find evidence of life out there, even though nobody can even see the planets, let alone, conditions on them. (Also, exoplanets are young, created recently like our own solar system. No time for Darwin to work his magic.) I maintain that it would be illogical to claim that even if life was found and evolution was proven, it would not justify that all life evolved; it would be the hasty generalization fallacy. Materialists don't seem to care.

Exoplanet GJ 357 d is supposedly in the habitable zone, yee haw boy howdy. There are many unknown factors as well as the little detail that it orbits a red dwarf star. The planet is also very large, but its composition is unknown. If it is rocky, the gravity would be lethal, and if it is something like Neptune, that would be another reason to saddle up and ride on to another telescope. These owlhoots keep on making empty proclamations; you'd think they would learn to rein in their hubris a spell until more information is gathered.
The headlines seem like science fiction, conjuring up images from the movie “Another Earth”. Is there possibly life on another planet like ours? Researchers at the Carl Sagan Institute at Cornell University discovered what may be an Earth-like planet, 31 light years away from our solar system.

Red dwarf stars are by far the most common type of star but are all too faint to be seen with the naked eye. The star GJ 357 is no exception: it is only about a third of the sun’s mass and diameter, but its temperature is quite cool, 3505 ± 51 K, and is only 1.6% as bright as the sun. There are huge problems with planets around red dwarf stars that make them unsuitable for life, as discussed in the our article about the ‘ultracool’ star Trappist-1 and its seven planets.

GJ 357 d is claimed to be in the habitable zone and has a rotation period between 70 and 120 Earth days. Such a slow rotation suggests at least partial tidal locking. Evolutionists think that this way the temperature on the planet is neither too hot nor too cold and is just right for life to evolve. . . . 

Should we really be so excited? What did the researchers really find?
