    I could not see this at Paul’s own blog just now but it’s an interesting article – if quite challenging ie complicated for a layman like myself.
    Readers will be unsurprised to learn that the Institute for Creation Research have produced some propaganda in response to the recent science papers: http://www.icr.org/article/8995
    “This unfair question assumes that such chemicals could ever form themselves into a cell even given an eternity to do so…”.
    “Of course, water also prevents life from evolving—a paradox that has always stood in the way of all evolutionary life origins theories”.
    “According to the Bible, God has always been alive, and he formed the first life thousands, not millions, of years ago. That means that these Australian zircons formed very recently, erasing the entire need to navigate evolution’s impossible scenarios.
    Research team leader Elizabeth Bell told the UCLA Newsroom, “We need to think differently about the early Earth.” Now that’s an understatement.”

    I tried to submit a comment but it has vanished off my screen. Basically flagged the Paul Braterman article at 3 Quarks Daily and pointed to some propaganda posted by the Institute for Creation Research: http://www.icr.org/article/8995/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook
