'Aliens in meteorites' provide a lesson bad science
For those of you that are not aware of it, there is evidence of life in outer space – and it looks just like modern life on Earth. We love to hate conspiracy theories. They challenge our minds, our creativity, stretch our imaginations. They even give us some wonderful sci-fi stories to make books, T.V. shows, and movies out of. And most conspiracy theories have some roots in bad science. This pseudo-science, as it were, is seen and defined as a set of ideas that present itself as science, but do not properly meet the criteria to actually be science.
