But the reality (in the words of the late Lynn Margulis, a respected evolutionary biologist) is that "[s]peciation, whether in the remote Galapagos, in the laboratory cages of the drosophilosophers, or in the crowded sediments of paleontologists, still has never been directly traced."

- J P Moreland:
Charles P: Dr Moreland says that there is only about a 5% overlap between
science and religion. Probably the most important conclusions made by all
scientists is that information comes from intelligent sources ---- as
illustrated by the scientists and their expectations from SETI.
SETI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SETI Search for extraterrestrial
Charles P: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENCODE The Encyclopedia of DNA
Elements will someday show the average reader which parts of the
preexisting DNA digital code information in the genome of a living thing
that produce the instructions to turn or and turn off genes in the
processes for building body parts.
