Sri Lankan politician Wimal Weerawansa, the leader of that nation’s left-wing National Freedom Front party, recently revealed in a speech that “white gentlemen” from an international space agency came to his country and attempted to steal fragments of a meteor that may contain evidence of alien life. Why?
It’s because they don’t want the world to know that creationism is a blatant lie. When it is proven that life outside planet earth exists, creationism would turn into a lie. This was a fact that was initially declared and proven by the Buddha and his teachings on the universe.
What Weerawansa is referring to is the so-called Anuradhapura meteorite, fragments of which were discovered in a paddy in the Sri Lankan district of Anuradhapura on December 8, 2013, during the Taurid meteor shower from Encke’s Comet making its once-every-three-years pass by Earth.
In a paper published in the Journal of Cosmology in February, 2014, scientists from the Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology and the Buckingham Center for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham claimed the fragments contained possible proof of cometary panspermia, the idea that life is spread throughout the universe by comets and meteors. The evidence consisted of:
… biological structures including acritarchs (small organic fossils) and diatom (algae) fossil fragments that are indigenous to stones. These discoveries are consistent with the hypothesis of cometary panspermia.
Weerawansa claims that a team of “sudu mahaththuru,” which translates to “white gentlemen,” from an unidentified international space research institute showed up in Sri Lanka almost immediately after the discovery but were apparently unsuccessful in their attempt to make off with the meteor.
Who were these white gentlemen and what international space agency were they working for? Do the meteorite fragments contain evidence of extraterrestrial life or of earthly biological contamination? Do creationists fear the existence of other life forms enough to steal any possible evidence?
Is Wimal Weerawansa telling the truth? After all, he IS a politician.
