Is God a meteorite? Not sure, but possibly a comet.
The Cardiff team suggests that radioactive elements can keep water in liquid form in comet interiors for millions of years, making them potentially ideal “incubators” for early life. They also point out that the billions of comets in our solar system and across the galaxy contain far more clay than the early Earth did. The researchers calculate the odds of life starting on Earth rather than inside a comet at one trillion trillion (10 to the power of 24) to one against.http://www.astrobio.net/news/modules.php?f...odload&sid=2432

there was a show on one of the science channels last night that talked about life starting in a comet. Pretty cool.
