Life From Other Planets

QUESTION: Didn’t Chesterton say something about the possibility that life on earth came from others planets?

ANSWER: Yes. He said, “Saying that life on earth came from another planet is like saying that a ghost in a graveyard must have come from some other graveyard. It doesn’t explain anything.” (Illustrated London News, May 3, 1924)
