Despite the misleading, sensational headline, 'Alien' picture...
Since everything on this planet appears to come from 'out there' at some point, the life part is pretty unsurprising and makes complete sense to me!
It's quite possible that my ignorance enables me to accept some sort of false cause type argument though...

So, we ARE an invasive species.  I wonder how long it took us to fuck up our first planet.

Whoa now! This just claims that 3.8 billion years ago microbes were seeded to earth via comets, asteroids and all that other space-flying jazz. That doesn't mean human life is from outer space. I mean, it's not like 3.8 billion years on this planet didn't lead to some earth-specific adaptations. Whatever.

Anthropocentrism ruins our ability to think and think clearly.

Actually I was, in jest, claiming the opposite.    I don't believe that humans or this planet or this galaxy is the center of anything.  As far as we humans have been able to observe and theorize, the universe may not have a center.
