Scientists In Sri Lanka Claim To Have Discovered Proof Of Extraterrestrial Life

In recent years there has been a steady increase in scientific findings that indicate very strongly that there is extraterrestrial life elsewhere in the universe.

Now in Sri Lanka a group of scientists claim to have discovered the smoking gun.

According to the Huffington Post:

“If a group of scientists are correct, tiny fossils uncovered inside a meteorite found in Sri Lanka in December are proof of extraterrestrial life.

In a detailed paper called “Fossil Diatoms In A New Carbonaceous Meteorite” that is appearing in the Journal of Cosmology, Chandra Wickramasinghe claims to have found strong evidence that life exists throughout the universe.

An electron microscope was used to study the reported remains of a large meteorite (see image below) that fell near the Sri Lanka village of Polonnaruwa on Dec. 29.

Wickramasinghe is the director of the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham in the U.K. In December, he and his colleagues found “a microstructure and morphology characteristic of a wide class of terrestrial diatoms.”

The group concluded that “the presence of structures of this kind in any extraterrestrial setting could be construed as unequivocal proof of biology” — in other words, proof of life outside of planet Earth.”

Since this news was released there was obviously skepticism in the mainstream media, but the scientists were able to respond to this criticism, and discuss their project more in depth.

The reply from Wickramasinghe read as follows:

“In 1962, [Hoyle and I] pioneered the theory of carbon grains in space to replace the old ice grain theory.

This was vehemently resisted by the astronomical community at the outset, but with the dawn of infrared spectroscopy, the ice grain theory gave way to the carbon dust theory,” Wickramasinghe told HuffPost in an email.

“Over a few years, after a great deal of model-fitting, we came to the conclusion that material similar to biomaterial fitted all the available data in astronomy …

We considered the possibility that biology (microbiology) had a universal character, and no observations in astronomy or new information from biology has provided contrary evidence.”

In an earlier research paper he co-authored in 2012, Wickramasinghe wrote:

“For nearly five decades evidence in favor of a non-terrestrial origin of life and panspermia has accumulated which has not been properly assessed.

A point has now been reached that demands the serious attention of biologists to a possibly transformative paradigm shift of the question of the origin of life, with profound implications across many disciplines.”

“If only ideas that are considered orthodox are given support through award of grants or publication opportunities, it is certain that the progress of science will be stifled as it was throughout the middle ages,” Wickramasinghe wrote to Huffington Post.

Wickramasinghe’s response speaks to a deep problem within scientific thought, and that is the scientific establishment.  The ruling class is able to completely direct the course of scientific thought through controlling all of the studies and grants.

This was the same way that the government of the Soviet Union controlled science, and created a priestly class of buerocrats in lab coats, and we can see this same sort of situation taking place in the western world today.
