“Over the years, when I bothered to think about it at all, I came to the conclusion that I prefer the scientific theory of life and the universe to the spiritual one.”

What a moronic statement. Completely ignorant of both science and religion.

1) there is no scientific theory of life and the universe

2) she’s just mistaken science for another spiritual view or religion.

Maybe her daughter can teach her some things, but I am not going to click through to read this whole thing.

She starts off talking about herself exclusively and i doubt the self absorption becomes less.

Wrong!

Here are the final words in both Darwin's "Origin of the Species" and its modern eye-opening update "Darwin's Ghost" by Steve Jones.

There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one, and that, whilst this planet has gone on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."

exactly. Science is about what you can prove by experimentation. When you get into speculation, it’s then a religious thought...

I always think these Guardian CiF stories are made up. They are always too glib, too perfect, too pat. This fits right in the mold.

Actually, there is a scientific theory for life in the Universe. In fact there is more than one, but at least one which seems most plausible. BUT that theory (Panspermia) still does not exclude the very real Hand of The Creator in forming the Universe and the system by which Panspermia happens. Chandra Wickramasinghe has an excellent, detailed video available on Youtube explaining the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5lFeW1FWfo
