I put this in the Pseudoscience section for the following reasons:

It is from a press release (reminds me of “cold fusion”)
It will be announced at the one place truly associated with breaking news of life-altering, amazing, paradigm-shifting scientific discoveries: A Ramada Inn.  smile  rolleyes

I am wondering if the company that made the rubber bigfoot costume frozen in ice last year made these “life forms” too?  LOL

After following the link to the announcement, then the link to Duane Snyder’s website, I agree: you placed this in the correct forum.

After following the link to the announcement, then the link to Duane Snyder’s website, I agree: you placed this in the correct forum.

When I attempted to link to Duane Snyder’s website, my WOT (Web of Trust) sensor gave a warning that the site had a poor reputation so I didn’t go there.  I suggest others do not either. 

Here is something about Mr. Snyder:

“I prayed for Jesus to send me an ice meteorite, because I knew it would be quite valuable,” Duane P. Snyder, 65, said of the chunk of ice he found on a South Haven roadway in 2000…In March 2000, Snyder noticed several chunks of ice on the road near his home. Since it hadn’t snowed for weeks, he deduced that the ice must have been an ice meteorite. After gathering up a few pieces and stashing them in his freezer, he spent the next 10 years trying to convince scientists to analyze the frozen mass.

I’m assuming NASA has found some more extremophiles or something like that here on Earth and will apply what they have found out about them to the search for life elsewhere.  And I doubt that NASA prayed to Jesus like Mr. Snyder did! smile

Do they have souls? Are they free of Original Sin? Has anyone consulted the Pope yet? He MUST be notified and explain the ramifications of this discovery to us!
I await his judgment..
