Re: Sad Sad Sad
How nice.

And where was this peer-reviewed piece recently published?

AbE: Ah, by the grace of google, I see--a Special Essay published in Science--not peer-reviewed, per se, since it isn't research..

So?

Kid, you bother me.

I am reading comments critical of science by one who believes the specimen essay is "a peer reviewed article" that offers a scientific definition of life. I am amazed.

And I am frozen by paradoxical stimuli.

I don't know whether to howl, bark at the moon and kick your ass--or simply to celebrate the confusion in my enemies' ranks.

File that under false dilemma.

Re: Sad Sad Sad
I agree...interesting attempt to abstract some descriptors for life deeper than eats, shoots and leaves.
