Life in space? - A Moment with Rabbi Avigdor Miller Zt"l #541
Parshas Bereishis 5781

QUESTION:

If life, even plant life, was discovered elsewhere in the universe, wouldn't that contradict our belief that Hashem created the earth and luminaries for the benefit of man?

ANSWER:

I'll discuss this with you when they first discover life someplace in space. The truth is, there is no statement anywhere that life doesn't exist in space. That cannot be a statement in the Chumash; it doesn't say anywhere in the Chumash or the Gemara that there is no life in space.

No man – there won't be any man anywhere in the universe – because man, the Torah says, comes only from Adam and Chava, and they are down below.

So far they didn't invent any vehicle that would take them to the distant stars. But life could be. I don't believe that there is, but it wouldn't be a contradiction to the Torah if life will be discovered on some other heavenly body.

Good Shabbos To All
