NASA’s ‘new form of life’ found in arsenic-rich lake disproven, scientists insist | News | National Post


Wolfe-Simon said in a statement sent to AFP that the data in the new papers “are consistent with our original paper” and that she and colleagues expect to publish new information in the next few months.
“A great thing about science is that the ability to do rigorous tests with controls provides an increasingly accurate knowledge of life and the universe that is extremely useful,” she said.
This is the reason that it is impossible to deny the discoveries of science because they don't fit into one's religious convictions. There is a self-correcting mechanism that acts like a gyroscope, keeping science true to its roll of objectively reveal the truth about creation. It's because of this it can be trusted, so long as one does not close themselves off to the possibility that any one discovery or theory may be incomplete or wrong - as this story seems to demonstrate happened with this re-definition of what is required for life.

To balance out the scales a little bit and show that these errors are committed by partisans on both sides of the God divide, here's a neat exposition by Lewis Black of why those who deny the validity of evolution are wrong. Hope it puts a smile on your face this wonderful Monday morning.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
