NASA Sued Over "Jelly Doughnut"

NASA Sued Over "Jelly Doughnut"

The silly season is again upon us with another
lawsuit has been filed over extraterrestrial lifeforms.
This time it is not over an extraterrestrial lifeform
in a so-called "meteorite," but over a rock, called
the "Jelly Doughnut" recently photographed by the
rover Opportunity. It is discussed in “Astrobiologist”
sues NASA, says Mars rock a “mushroom-like
fungus” ArsTechnica, Janary 29, 2014 at:
http://arstechnica.com/science/2014/01/unconvinced-that-jelly-donut-sized-mars-rock-was-just-a-rock-man-sues-nasa/

And "Alien life on Mars? NASA lawsuit seeks more
information on Red Planet rock." Russia Today News
http://rt.com/news/nasa-lawsuit-life-mars-440/

The text of the lawsuit is in “Rhawn Joseph sues NASA” at
http://www.scribd.com/doc/202863315/NASA-Lawsuit

This is not the first time that he has sued NASA as
seen in "[Utah-astronomy] Fw: NASA Served With
Lawsuit By Rhawn Josep…" at:

On page 6, it is stated:

" 21. In 2011, Petitioner published a genetic analyses
of DNA evolution, beginning with the first life forms
to take up residence of Earth, and was able to trace
the evolution of DNA to over 10 billion years into the
past, 6 billion years before Earth was formed."

This reminds me of an article discussed in:

Researchers use Moore's Law to calculate that life began
before Earth existed by Bob Yirk, PHysOrg, April 18, 2013

The article is:

Gordon, arXiv.org, physics, arXiv:1304.3381 (Submitted

One of the sources that this article cites is an earlier
article by Rhawn Joseph. This article is:

planets. Journal of Cosmology. vol. 1, pp. 1-56.
