How would that be the case?

Not to me anyway, as a matter of faith. :-)

Such fossil rabbits would simply force me to revise my current

As Dawkins says, cosmic panspermia might even be true, e.g., and it
would simply replace the issue on where, how and when life developed:
crates all the way, *not* skyhooks.
