Thanks Danny...

According to Peter Atkins, evolution can address origins..
The heart cannot rejoice in what the mind rejects as false - Galileo

We learn from history that we do not learn from history - Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. -Philippians 4:8

But then again this begs the questions - can origins address evolution?

Not yet but it's on my radar... I'm really interested in what he has to say about the method of multiple competing hypotheses.

In the debate with Atkins, Meyer spoke of Information and every known code coming from a designer; Atkins tried to shout him down with "examples" of information arising naturally. When Meyer pointed out that he was specifically talking about the coded information found in the cell, Atkins' objections seemed to wither away somewhat. Meyer seems to be coming from the same angle as (or similar to) Perry Marshall. I have this book on my radar too.
