On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin discusses recent media coverage of the 2012 Sutter’s Mill meteorite that falsely reports it as containing “seeds of early life” which could have helped generate “[t]he primordial soup of the early Earth.” Tune in as Luskin reveals the weak science — and significant political motives — behind these claims, which one organic chemist describes as “at best misleading, at worst . . . down-right fraudulent.”
