Gliese 581g: The New Earth! (No, Really.)

Steven Vogt has determined that there’s a 100% chance of life on the newly-discovered planet in another solar system.

“100% Chance” For Life On Newly-Found Planet?

It’s based on real hard science, too. Here’s how it works:

Premise: We always find life everywhere there exists conditions that support life (in other words, so far, Earth).

Hypothesis: There could be life in other places with conditions that support life.

Theory: … um?

Test theory: …hmmm… uh…

Conclusion: There is a 100% chance that there is life on another planet.

And we’re not talking 90% or even 99% that we’d find life there. We’re talking 100%. The only thing more concrete than that is the science behind global warming.

And here’s the best part: “The chances for life on this planet are 100 percent,” Steven Vogt, a UC professor of astronomy and astrophysics says. “I have almost no doubt about it.”

In other words, he’s 99% sure that there’s a 100% chance of life on another planet. Make no mistake; he’s not 100% sure that there’s a 99% chance of life on another planet. He’s 99% sure there’s a 100% chance of life on another planet.

I have a feeling today’s scientists get their degrees online.
