With all the concern about contaminated peanut butter, maybe life is indeed springing from sealed containers after all? No? Ok, It's time to return to Peanut Butter man. But really, I think this a little funny, yet a little scary at the same time. I guess Dr. Missler has not heard of very ancient concept known as Panspermia. A concept where life did not necessarily originate here on Earth. It suggests it was deposited via a rocky asteroid or an icy comet. We know microbes are hardy little beasts and can quite well survive within rocks. What if such a rock were to fall to a barren young Earth? We do know comets have visited us already. Why should the material of life be unique to this planet? Sometimes people look to magic when the simplest explanation is quite sufficient. But this model, does not fit his template for a perfect closed world view. His energy is magic. Enjoy the video. There are many variations. I have included the link to the 'fair and balanced version'. Dr. Missler presumes much, but his mistake is he presumes the Earth is a closed system, when the ancient Greeks did not even do this!
