According to Jeremy England, if I leave my coal stove running for several million years it should gradually restructure itself into a living organism. What would Pope Francis say to Mr. England?

Man,am I ever screwed! I remember asking The Old Man,"What Do You Take Me For?" When he answered my question of where did Babies and Myself come from? He had the Audacity to tell me that he shined a Heat Lamp on Ma's Abdomen for 9 Months,and "Whallah" there I was! Boy,according to this 31 year old MIT Genius,was I ever wrong to think Pa was taking me for a ride! As far as the Guy wearing the Living Room Drapes in Rome,I've got a feeling he and the Kid wouldn't see eye to eye on this one. However,they'd probably have one heck of a decent and informative discourse on the subject. The new Head Man seems to be a wee bit more open to talking about things than the last Pope. Man,do I ever miss John Paul! Good Man!

I was reading not to long ago that with this non-climate change going on that moss that had been buried under ice for hundreds of years started growing again once exposed to sun & air. They took some to a lab & it's thriving but sometimes me thinks maybe they should leave well enough alone, nature does things slowly & for reason.

I remember reading about 20 years ago in one of Richard Dawkin's books that he used the phenomenon of crystallization as a possible precursor to life.

This article seems to have solved the mathematics behind it and the tendency toward it but that's about it.

I think he's on to something. Life itself is a form of energy, what he theorizes makes sense to me. In the imortal words of Chevy Chase, "I LIKE IT!"
