Seriously, why doesn't anyone here actually address the factual challenges brought up by this article and the book?? Because you have no argument — only childish personal attacks. Plain and simple. You have nothing else. And to those who act like these recent discoveries are not challenges to the orthodox evolution religion, you obviously do not understand the science.Okay, here is a serious answer.First, I do indeed understand the science. I was for 15 years a professor of biostatistics and biomathematics in two medical schools (MUSC and UNM). I have consulted on research in every part of medicine and biology, including years of work in genetics, genomics, RNA microassays, and mathematical sociobiology. I don't know who you are or what your background in science is, but mine is on public record:Academic: http://math.ucdenver.edu/~lorencobbBusiness: http://www.Aetheling.comSecond, I have had a lifelong interest in religion, theology, and spiritual questions. My knowledge of religion comes from having grown up in a Quaker family in Lahore, Pakistan, where I was exposed for many years to Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and the Sikh and Jain religions. I have studied all of these, in depth, and in fact I know them better than Christianity. From my perspective, the problems that a few North American fundies have with the theory of evolution are just a small regional confusion, not shared by any other mass religion.Third, there really are some extremely interesting issues and questions surrounding the origin of life and the origin of the universe — but the Bible and its silly little Genesis origin myth have nothing whatsoever to do with these questions. One might as well try to understand quantum physics by reading Aesop's Fables.Finally, if I spend my time arguing with people who can't even comprehend the scientific and mathematical literature in genetics and biology, what does that make me? I really hope I'm not that foolish.Loren
