Organic molecules discovered on Saturn moon Enceladus

Well, I had to post this after posting the one about organics on Mars. Again, it is important to note that just because there are organic compounds found, that does not mean there is or could be life. So many things have to happen in order to form life, according to secular scientists. The first thing that has to happen is amino acids have to form. Amino acids are complex enough, but all the amino acids have to be “left-handed“ racemers. The problem here is that in reality, they form in a 1:1 ratio of left and right. This alone makes the next step impossible, which is proteins have to form. The amino acids have to string together to form a protein. The smallest protein possible to form life is 20 amino acids. The amino acids have to be in the correct order as well. If we somehow got around the left and right issue, and then had the right amino acids available, they would still have to string together in the right order. The odds of all this happening are somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 10 to the 180th power. You have better odds of winning the lottery 100 weeks in a row, than coming up with a protein by random chance.


And you still would not have life.


God created all life on Earth – the plants on day 3, the fish and the birds on day 5, and animals and man on day 6. The organics discovered on Saturn’s moon are interesting, but they are not life. Life may exist elsewhere in the universe, but we can be sure that God has a special place in His heart for us since He offered up His only son, Jesus as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.


On that we can have confidence.



Organic molecules discovered on Saturn moon Enceladus

Scientists have discovered organic molecules containing nitrogen and oxygen on Saturn’s moon Enceladus, according to a new study.


Enceladus, which is Saturn’s sixth-largest moon and about 310 miles in diameter, is an icy orb believed to contain a deep subsurface ocean underneath its icy crust.


Discovering organic molecules on Enceladus is noteworthy because water, energy and organic molecules could be the ingredients for some type of extraterrestrial life.


Enceladus shot the material out in plumes from cracks in its south polar crust, according to scientists.


For the new study, German and U.S. researchers examined the Cosmic Dust Analyzer’s data and found new organic compounds, according to the paper published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society for November.


The molecules included amines, which are nitrogen- and oxygen-containing organic molecules that have some similar traits to those on Earth, according to the study’s abstract.
