this is extraordinary

So I guess most of you read huffpo.

But released today was the news that a comet was discovered with proteins - i.e.- the building blocks necessary for life.

This means, basically (not that there was much of a doubt), that life is not the unique providence of our planet. Beyond putting the lie to the notion that we are somehow special, and making things a mite difficult for the religious, it's just sort of marvelous.
