Heh! Maher is usually right on target, and Tyson is always a joy to watch.The Martian origin of Earthly life has been considered a real possibility for some time. As I understand it, early Mars was a better environment for life to originate than early Earth was, but did not provide such a good environment for its subsequent development. So the fortuitous close proximity of Mars as a place where life could begin, and Earth as a place where it could be carried by meteorites and develop into more complex forms, was a necessary favorable situation -- with either planet absent or different, the complex ecosystem we see today could never have existed.
Maher nails it on Trickle-Down Republican "Jesus." Their version of JC and the one in the Bible are not the same.
