the discovery of exoplanets (planets outside our solar system) boosted researchers’ enthusiasm for finding life beyond Earth. Thus far, our technology lacks the sensitivity to detect any signatures of life outside of our solar system, but scientists continue to make progress. While these advances reveal additional indicators that Earth may be rare (or unique) in its capacity to support life, they also provide a way to genuinely test the rare-earth hypothesis.”

   Ten years ago, we knew virtually nothing about exoplanets. Now we can make the case for the existence of thousands of them¹, a few of which may exist in “Goldilocks zones” (that’s the term for “just right” habitable living). Now those words (“exoplanet” and “Goldilocks”–with a new meaning) have crept into our vocabulary. And, of course, books and movies about possible adventure in space to locate other humans beyond Earth–if such exist. (For one, see sidebar on right. ; ) ).

   The Bible, incidentally, is silent about that possibility.

   To help us think about new–and I mean, brand-new–discoveries in science and how they relate to correctly understanding Christian faith and the Bible we strongly recommend exploring the website, reasons.org. (Sorry, we can’t bounce you right there yet, but it’s easy to type in.)
