Can panspermia be considered a type of creationist, ID, or it fit better in its own category? (I think that's the last choice, but sometimes everything is messed up).

Here's a site which defends panspermia: http://www.panspermia.org/

- That's not propaganda! I'm not defending it at all. I just thought that sometimes is a bit tiring to refute creationisms again and again, so maybe we could refute a little bit of some other "opponent", even if there's no one here to defend it. Just to vary a little bit.

Panspermia
I'd say it is none of the above. It is another possibility for how life arose on earth. It is interesting as an idea in it's own right but it's going to be tough to find any evidence in the short term. (ignoring what's on Mars as of now).

It would be ID if someone said that intelligence brought life to earth. It would be creationist is someone said that God created life elsewhere (the garden of Eden is on another planet? ). Otherwise it is just an idea.


Common sense isn't

Kind of ironic.

I am working on a Panspermia paper right now - literally today!

Never heard of this one before. It would be nice to have a follower of this theory here. It would make the the debates even hotter i guess
