Proof of Alien Life? … Nope.

There is a Story in the Guardian here that announces …

Nasa scientist claims evidence of extraterrestrial life

It’s an interesting read, but I have just one tiny little niggle about it, just a small point … it is complete bollocks, so please don’t go and get all orgasmic over this news.

Several well-respected science bloggers have already sliced it all up nicely, you can read PZ here, Read David Dobbs here, or Rosie Redfield here, and note that they give it a thumbs down, not just because it was published in a rather dubious journal, but also because the data presented does not support the conclusion – in a word pareidolia.
