I think that the extraordinary claim is that life on Earth is somehow special magic pixie dust, and not an emergent characteristic of chemistry and physics, and abundant in the cosmos.

nobody is saying life is extraordinary

what's extraordinary is aliens flying to earth in spaceships

>nobody is saying life is extraordinary

I have seen many people on this very board claim that ET life might not exist.

I have seen UFOs with my own two eyes, as have many, many other people. I think it is an extraordinary claim that there is a small branch of humanity which has not just advanced technology but actual science which is decades if not centuries ahead of the reast of humanity, and has done so for the better part of the last century.

True enough. I have seen people actually claim that the ALH84001 announcement was actually falsified and will argue infinitely that there couldn't possibly be fossils from Mars.

Just last week it was announced that comet Lovejoy is leaving a trail of sugar and alcohol. The Oort cloud is saturated with water, various amino acids and organic carbohydrates; pretty much everything needed to get life started in a convenient package of comets which bombarded the solar system.

The chemistry of our bodies isn't magic, it is as commonplace and didn't even begin on Earth.

>spot the IFLS normie faggot

Glycolaldehyde is only barely a sugar, it's fucking HO-CH2-CH=O. You're making it sound like we found fucking glucose (and upon a quick search I find that this is because IFLS had a click bait article with the exact same bullshit)

I agree with the premise of the thread, but please leave /sci/
>>
>>7635928

Sorry are you claiming that isn't an organic carbohydrate? Must you resort to semantics to derail this thread?
>>
>>7635878
>>7635962
illiterate chemists call every soluble carbohydrate "a sugar" becoz they can't into neologism

Observe how the denialist jumps into the discussion and responds to a strong argument with nothing but ad-hominem, semantics, greentext and strawmanning. This pretty much sums up the ET life denialist movement and their lack of extraordinary evidence.

>ad-hominem

>red-herring
>semantic

Nice effort for one poorly formatted sentence.
>>
>>7635962
Nah bud, you're the one floating on semantics. Sure, glycerolaldehyde is technically a carb, but it's hardly the complex biological molecule you're making it out to be. Calling it a "sugar" is just playing up semantics to make the discovery seem more amazing than it really is. It's fucking ethylene glycol with one end oxidised
