Scientists say organisms reached

Nov. 29 —  Geochemists say an analysis of South African rocks indicates that primitive life made the jump from Earth’s seas to land at least 1.4 billion years earlier than previously thought — a claim that could have an impact on the search for life beyond Earth.

With this week's exams out of the way, I'll relate my brother's Thanksgiving phone call. Remember that this is the brother I LIKE. He asked me how school was going. I replied, starting with Botany. When I got to my Evolution class, he said, "Oh...HEATHEN school, eh?" I said, "Are you telling me that you think the earth is only 6,000 years old?" He said, "No. I think 10,000 is about right."

After about 5 minutes of banter on this subject, I decided it was time to put this aside, as he had already moved on to sin, homosexuality, etc. I love the guy. NOBODY bloodied my nose better than he did when we were kids, but there's NO arguing reality versus his religious beliefs. My OTHER brother has NO religious beliefs, but his mind is even farther from reality. The story is that we all came from Lucky's womb, but I grow more curious every day about the day my dad took me aside and said, "I think you came from aliens."
