Nor is there any DNA there, but then alien bacteria would not necessarily contain DNA Interesting to claim that life on Earth was started by cometary contributions, and the also claim that a sample of that panspermia would not necessarily contain DNA. If these are microbes, either of terrestrial, or ET origin, they would have DNA, just as the life here, that was supposed seeded by these comets. I do believe that there is some credibility to the panspermia idea, I just think that this example is full of, nothing.

It all started with scarlet rain showers last Thursday on some villages in the southern districts of Kottayam and Idukki... Coloured rain falls on Kerala Some red rains have been analyzed scientifically. On March 14, 1818, there was a red rain in Naples, Italy, and dry powder was collected after the shower. The powder was analyzed and was shown to be composed of silex (33%), alumina (15.5%), chrome (1.0%), carbonic acid (9.0%), and a "combustible substance of a carbonaceous nature." It was thought to be of "volcanic origin, and that the presence of chrome assimilates it with meteoric stones" (...

IT'S official. The coloured rain in some parts of Kerala was caused by the fine dust thrown up by a disintegrating meteorite. The celestial body, passing at great speed, deposited the dust in the monsoon clouds, causing the downpour of colour. Dust settles over Kerala's `red rain'

Thanks for that reaserch you've done 'Pax Unum'. I like the theory that life on earth began from meteorites... that it came from space. Since this is such an isolated incident I highly doubt that this organic material is earth-borne... although it is very plausible. Are the specimins still alive? Could the temperature change between freezing cold and super hot have caused the life to disintigrate into what we see now?

Could the temperature change between freezing cold and super hot have caused the life to disintigrate into what we see now? The most widely-accepted interpretation of organic compounds in meteorites is that carbon compounds are probably abiotic but have the potential to become life in the right condit...

I have to agree with "Stix" on this one. Temperature, light, oxygen, whatever, could have caused a "physical" change from that was, to what is. Man's interpretation of life in general appears to be very limited once again.

Was just reading Peter Fotis Kapnistos article here.. about 'Q' life... http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=162714 Q-life –– set apart as a “life form without material structure” –– ironically harks back to our ancient belief in spirits. According to Professor Davies, the benefit of simply copying information at the quantum level, instead of building rigid duplicate molecular structures, is speed: “Q-life can therefore evolve many orders of magnitude faster than chemical life,” Davies pointed out. The environment of theoretical Q-life is unclear, but the surfaces of ...

Was just reading Peter Fotis Kapnistos article here.. about 'Q' life... I wonder if something similar would happen if we took those so called 'DNA challenged red cells' from Kerala's infamous 'Red Rain' into space? http://education.vsnl.com/godfrey/rr2006.html Would they suddenly morph into something? could they have 'Q life'? His theory... According to these published results, the red particles, which caused the red rain of Kerala, are possibly of extraterrestrial origin. This conclusion is arrived by analysing the various aspects associated with this phenomenon, like the geographical and tim...
