    Origin Of Water On Earth: Sounds Like They Have No Clue?




    Even the theories sound...well, "watered down"?

    I am thinking that H2O is pretty abundant in the Universe.

    So, it was likely part of the Earth from the beginning, and then, after a few million years of bombardment by "icy" asteroids and comets.......

    (This is why I think all the "Alien Invasion" movies, in which they are here to steal out water, are silly. Some species that can travel across the void of space between stars, can certainly thaw out a few asteroids or comets......)

    In the beginning earth was supposedly in a molten state, no water could exist? Any ice carried by comets would have been evaporated by impact even upon a solid, cooled earth? Earth is 70% water, how many comets would that take anyway? Doesn't seem feasible?

    You and I may be the only ones who thought it was a "great" movie?

    #1. When the Earth was "molten:" A molten planet might still have an atmosphere. The atmosphere at that time could have been made up largely of water vapor.

    #2. Evaporated water will still mostly, be bound up in the Earth's atmosphere. Most everything that "escaped" would eventually be pulled back, by Earth's gravity.

    #3. In past eons, as the Solar System was forming, there were likely far more comets and asteroids, many of them "icy."

    Again--JUST my personal opinion--the Universe may be FULL of H2O. We already know that Hydrogen is the most abundant element.

    Water is everywhere. It comes from the massive amounts of H and O in the cosmic web. It comes in on comets and asteroids. It comes in gas clouds. We have clouds of methyl alcohol all over the galaxy. This is not hard.

    It's not "everywhere" to the extent it is here? I guess I was expecting the folks of faith to show up and argue that the amount of water on earth could not have come about "naturally", like it is argued that a lot of other things could not have happened aside from divine intervention or outright creation?

    Maybe I was wrong, or maybe they just have not made an appearance yet?

    I think our magnetic core trapped the gasses too.

    OIC. Ok. Here's my opinion on that. God is the Creator. So God created the Physics that rule the cosmic web and dark matter.
