According to this article at the smh they've found liquid water on Mars, which is a strong indicator that the possibility of life on Mars is still alive and well. How would the religious, particularly literalists like those that believe the book of Genesis is fact, consider this in the grander scheme of things? If you're a Creationist and you don't believe evolution to be fact, would evidence of microscopic life on Mars have a profound effect on your belief system? Personally, I think evolution is a well proven fact and I'm certain that there are various forms of other life out there in the universe. It's the height of human arrogance and hubris to consider ourselves unique in an infinite universe, as far as I'm concerned. This is quite different to the views of most religious people though. So, life on Mars - evidence against religious beliefs?
