I recently came across an interesting scholarly article entitled, “Fitness of the Universe for a Second Genesis: Is it Compatible with Science and Christianity?” Readers know I have  along-standing interest in panspermia and its theological implications. Having just completed an article of my own on panspermia for an edited volume (not sure when it will appear), this was timely. The article asks good questions like, “Could biochemical fine-tuning be responsible for a Second Genesis?” Naturally, there will be points where I’d handle things differently, but it’s nice to see scholars are asking questions about theology and science and are including the possibility of intelligent ETs in the discussion.
