  1. Claiming that these pre-biotic molecules are “showing similar patterns to our DNA” is akin to claiming that the discovery of some shapes that could be formed into letters would be ‘showing similar patterns to Shakespeare.’

    1. No, i wouldn’t go that far. From the evidence presented here, there are certain similarities.

    What they found are a number of relatively simple organic molecules, one of which might react to form one of the four basic components of DNA. The second might form an amino acid that is important for life. Similar to DNA would be a stretch considering the complexity of DNA. Considering that these organic molecules might originate anywhere in the universe, the distance from earth has little to do with the age of the earth and there are much more compelling data concerning the age of the earth and the known universe though I’m sure this might be debated.

    1. Skid, my comment about the distance from the earth is that is has taken 25000 light years for the images of the clouds to travel hear. Young Earth Creationists, who completely destroy Scripture, say that’s impossible.
