"The very first thing that ever caused me to question the Christian religion was when I would hear my mother say negative things about Islam. Nothing hateful, just with the attitude of "why would you convert to Islam". I don't think…"

"Evolution does not require mutation in all cases.  Many evolutionary changes are much less significant--at first.  Speciation occurs as a result of the cumulative effect of these changes, large and small, over vast amounts of time."

"This  experiment you cited was actually feature on Morgan Freeman's "Through the Wormhole". The trick now is the assemblage into the array of complex RNA molecules necessary to orchestrate the assemblage of a DNA molecule.  "
