Yeah waterbears are awesome. Some ppl even believe they originated from outer space. They can die and dehydrate completely and come back to life years later. In dried out state the only need one waterdrop to come back to life again. They can survive in acid and solvents. And you can find em pretty much anywhere. They've been found 6000 metres in the depths of ocean and 6 km upon mountain hilltops. Amazing. I for instance never heard about them.

He says: "Did Tardigrades come from space? Anything is possible, we might have come from another Galaxy". Kind of tough to take him seriously from that point onwards.

If panspermia can be entertained without a shred of empirical proof.....then so should creation theories!

Ya ok and an all knowing god that hides amoung the shadows and feeds us lies so man can use his name to dictate is real then ya creationism could be real. However we know that is not the case. Do you know what panspermia even is compared to a god creating a universe just for us.

If the universe is finite, what lies beyond it? If the universe is infinite, it is incomprehensible.
