Is the end of God nigh?

With Rosetta nearing it’s target, my questions are what happens to god should they find life on an asteroid? Even the possibility to sustain life?

The Philae lander will collect ACTUAL samples from the rock, and provide us with irrefutable proof.

What will this do to the theory of Panspermia? What will this do to the theory of god?

The religious attach more value to “what if” than they would like to admit. So the mental exercise should be easy for all.

If life or the ability to sustain life is directly observed by landing on a moving asteroid, would that be enough proof that your particular deity is not the creator, or will you find a way to justify it through your gobbledygookbook?

Is the possibility that asteroids can carry life over millions of lightyears so far fetched? One world out of massive amounts of goldilocks planets, being struck by the bees of the universe at the right time… 

Even if they don’t, it’s but a single asteroid. Frozen in space, thawed on re-entry, distributed through the explosion, makes one wonder at least…

And for the conspiracy theorists out there:
Is such a discovery epic enough that the American government (NASA project) will hide the discovery to keep balance in the world? Or perhaps capitalise on the chaos?

Anyway, entertained my mind for a while, maybe it will yours too.

AKA wites: -What will this do to the theory of Panspermia?- Panspermia is not a scientific theory. Maybe you need a class in basic science?

RNA the building blocks for life has been detected around newly formed stars. Let that sink in... The stars seed the planets! No need for god.

I cant imagine putting your trust in finding life on other planets, asteroids ext....must be torture. Imagine the disappointment. I can save you the suspense and disappointment. ...there is no life out there because God created life on earth. The universe was created to declare the glory of God. Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands."

If we, as carbon water based organic life can exist, why can't a pure energy life form(s)exist. I have no doubt via my life experience that there is some spiritual type of life form. I accept that as God and I base myself as Christian as that is where I am comfortable. However, the bible cannot be taken literally and God in my view exists in spite of the bible NOT because of it. That is, the bible did not create God and one can create in an evolutionary manner. Hence life on an asteroid just confirms that we are not gods (That is, we are not the best the multi / universe has to offer) and that it is highly possible that far more advanced life than we are, exists. So in my view life on an asteroid just confirms a higher order of life than us.

Is the end of God nigh? Not at all!!! The Lord Jesus Christ is busy building His Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail! Trying to fight Christianity is trying to fight a tsunami using a teaspoon! "And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, AND IT SHALL STAND FOREVER." (Prophecy from the book of Daniel:2:44) THE END OF GOD IS NOT NIGH AS THE BLOODWASHED CHURCH IS MARCHING ON TRIUMPHANTLY AND VICTORIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Author, you ask some interesting and valid questions, but you are allowing some special pleading to slip into your arguments, not to mention a great deal of the "what if" that you accuse the religious of having. Thereby ruining a potentially good article and reducing it to nothing more than another religious fight in the making. If this one asteroid contains some signs of life (the chances of it being able to *sustain* life, at least as we know it is virtually nil), then it disproves a deity in your books. But if this is a swing and miss with nothing of the sort, then it is merely one asteroid. You cannot have two sets of rules. That makes you no better than the religious folk. Please take note that religious folk aren't all Christian. There are some weird religions that have no qualms whatsoever with life from outer space. In all, some interesting questions to ponder.
