"The laser produced a shockwave in the plasma, generating radiation and temperatures of over 7,600 degrees Fahrenheit. This triggered a cascade of chemical reactions, leading to the formation of four RNA..." "...In conclusion, all these findings suggest that the emergence of terrestrial life is not the result of an accident but a direct consequence of…

“Natural Selection is about competition for resources and snowflakes are not alive — they don’t need it.” says Stuart Kauffmann

Looking at simple forms like the snowflake, [Kauffmann] he noted that its "delicate sixfold symmetry tells us that order can arise without the benefit of natural selection". Kauffman says natural selection is about competition for resources and snowflakes are not alive -- they don't need it.   See link below for more on fractals/maths in…

The Turing Enigma: another Non-Darwinian explanation of evolution

  Yet another seemingly oblique connection between science & Darwinian evolution is made here in this blog, but on closer inspection, the link becomes clear.  Alan Turing in his perhaps less known connection to biology, explains in his 1950s paper entitled: http://www.dna.caltech.edu/courses/cs191/paperscs191/turing.pdf The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis by A. M. Turing Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
