B.C. discovery may be older than the sun: Meteorite bolsters theory of how Earth got its evolutionary building blocks (ANNE MCILROY, 12/01/06, Globe and Mail)

Scientists have found tiny bubbles of organic material that may be older than the sun, in a meteorite that landed on a frozen lake in northwestern British Columbia.

NASA researchers say the ancient globules add weight to the theory that space rocks delivered the raw materials required for the evolution of the first life forms on Earth.

Evolution is undoubtedly driven from without. The only question is whether there's a design to the interventions.
