"Crick and Orgel wrote in their book 'Life Itself,' "an honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going."

Crick is one of my scientific heroes. Now I have lots of new leads to pursue, find I'm not alone, and other scientists question it as well, but some of this work may turn out to be outdated.

First I'll have to figure out who came up with that quote, got it from an evolution vs. creationism debate on youtube.

Some FReepers act like you're ignorant if you don't accept evolution unquestioningly which seems to be the dominating thought out there.

It's simply beyond their comprehension that someone could consider the ToE and decide against it.

And dissent is NOT allowed.

So much for objectivity.
