We should study 'dead' alien worlds, and maybe (carefully) seed them with life

I get a queasy feeling when I hear about scientists "considering to play god" by seeding life in a petri dish or on a "lifeless" space entity or elsewhere. Face it; H. Sapiens is full of Hubris but short on insight, common sense and tax payer funding. I'll stick with Nature and Evolution and eschew the "low cost bidders". Perhaps preserving the diverse species now on Earth may be a more difficult task but one that is far more rewarding than trying for the "Dr. Frankenstein" nomination.
