Harvard Jumps Into Evolution Debate
An interesting bit of news from WP.com. Appearently Harvard (which, incidentally, started out as a seminary) will put up 1 million USD a year to research how life began. "My expectation is that we will be able to reduce this to a very simple series of logical events that could have taken place with no divine intervention," said David R. Liu, a professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Harvard.
Tsk, tsk. Such confidence in the hypothesis. However according to WP, "The project begins with an admission that some mysteries about life's origins cannot be explained." Well, at least we're being objective. Stay tuned.
