Space Meteorite Contains Two Chemicals Found in Human RNA and DNA
Scientists have announced that two chemicals isolated on an extraplanetary meteorite fragment from Australia, xanthine and uracil, also are present in human RNA and DNA.
Following the logical thread, one could deduce that the theory of panspermia has found more supporting evidence.
Francis Crick, discoverer of the double-helix structure of DNA, advocated a concept known as "directed panspermia," that is a view that an intelligent process or organizing algorithm resembling independent intelligence or sentience was behind the distribution of DNAs factors. What scientists announced today implies that panspermia could be a reagent to the life-forming process itself.
