, so little water or so much water. It all depends on the current model of the decade.
I respectfully suggest that THIS model needs additional work, as every other model does. Largely due to the fact that NONE have even closely or moderately managed to predict our CURRENT solar system.
Let's consider OTHER models, previous models. Where water could NOT exist in the frost line of the asteroid belt. Until it was observed.
I respectfully suggest that we lack sufficient understanding of physics to truthfully predict our or any other planetary system.
We're close, but not enough to even SEE that cigar.
Though, I DO long for that day!
Consider this: A generation ago (for humans), the Earth could not support water in formation, it was too hot. Some magma Earth thing going on at formation.
NOBODY considered what water would do in that environment. ALL assumed it would be blown off by Sol.
Today, we realize it would NOT be blown off. Indeed, I suspect our magnetic field was, erm, rather MORE interesting than it is today, due to magma oceans and no solids at that point, super fluids ARE super fluids and all...
Now, we're only BEGINNING to model such extreme environments. And we're seeing interesting, indeed, potentially bizarre results.
So, as usual, our models are imperfect. They describe things at best, problematically. But, they do better than some obscure bronze age story and gradually do a far better job of it.
No, I'm far from being atheist in nature. I'm more deist in nature, overall.
However, one does NOT explain to a small child PRECISELY HOW
their baby sibling was conceived. One gives "baby steps" explanations.
concept, we're only entering the age of more advanced explanations.
But, some seek understanding through consensus of disparate views. Others seek understanding through current views.
I'll stick with the Geth consensus. ;)
