"What’s quite clear is that boron, as an element, is quite scarce in Earth’s crust," Prof Benner told BBC News, “but Mars has been drier than Earth and more oxidising, so if Earth is not suitable for the chemistry, Mars might be.

"The evidence seems to be building that we are actually all Martians; that life started on Mars and came to Earth on a rock," he commented.


BBC News - Earth life 'may have come from Mars'

If this is accurate, it adds yet another layer to the difficulty of creation of intelligent life on other planets.

Gotta be outside of radiation zones
Gotta have certain stage stars go nova and spew elements
Gotta be the proper distance from any "sun"
Gotta have water
Gotta have a moon
Gotta have a donor planet for early life
etc.
etc.

My pastor thinks this is all mumbo jumbo so therefore I don't but it.

We all have been told (repeatedly) that pastors are the only source of information worth listening to.

Unless, of course, you happen to be an intelligent, thinking person. We know that's not true.

And back to a subject worth talking aboit in the SCIENCE forum: I wouldn't be surprised that at least part of the life on Earth came from Mars, but I also doubt that it all did. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if we learned some of the basics came from Jupiter, or Saturn, or a moon of one of the outer planets.

Or perhaps the stars. Hmmmmm.

The particles that are found on Mars are likely found on all or most all other planets as well, in differing amounts. Where did they come from? From space. Here or there. It doesn't mean all Boron came from Mars to Earth.
