I think the saying was supposed to go "But not a drop to drink" :mmph:
And Stripe! The whole point being what if water had literally surrounded the earth in satellites of water loaded rocks of debris?
The article - which you did read didn't you? Said
Now Stripe it could be the rocks released their water when they came to Earth - if the above description is accurate, right?
I always try to remind those who love science - truly love it - that the true beauty of it is seeing how God did things, yes?
Weren't you amazed by things in nature found by us?
I was amazed to find humans may have thought the Sun was circling the Earth - because it looked that way.
But when we found that was not true we called it geocentrism and laughed at it.
Only to find out later that though the Earth is moving like one part of a clockworks of wheels within wheels - yet it is (so far) the only part to benefit from the entire solar system that may serve it.
Imagine - all of this (the Solar System) for the life on Earth.
But not just that is amazing! No.
Look at the Complexity and Delicacy of how this whole thing is put together and works.
Change one planet's orbit - and it might destroy the whole system, right?
So there ya go.
Water laden rocks.
