That isn’t the way science works; when an astonishing but repeatable result comes up like this, it can’t be explained away without a mechanism. Either it’s life, or it’s a currently unknown mechanism.
The authors, who are experts, couldn’t come up with a way that it isn’t life. It’s simply an open question now, not something explained away with a bit of deductive reasoning. It is certainly something that should be investigated, with actual evidence determining the outcome.
You're a painfully stupid individual.
