As I viewed the animation of the working of molecular machinery Dr. Torley posted below, two things occurred to me. 1. It is the very acme of absurdity to assert those machines assembled themselves spontaneously through the accretion of random errors sorted by a fitness function. 2. Many highly educated people assert just that. Then a third thing occurred to me. 3.Vast amounts of education do not necessarily insulate one from making absurd asertions; to the contrary, for many people it appears to have equipped them to do so.
