So, why do you write here amongst the non-specialists? Something still smells like a dead rat.

I am a bit confused by your objection. Don't we want serious discussion here? I for one want to understand Vlad's claims and examine them for what they reveal. Even if they simply point to gaps in our knowledge, that discussion is useful.

No irreducibly complex argument that I've seen so far long survives serious examination, but at a minimum such arguments are entertaining, and in some cases we learn some biology along the way.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions? Scott Adams

Re: Oral presentation
So, you agree that life was not poofed into existence.

Didn't he answer that question already? He says that nobody knows.
