Biologists once wondered about a “life force,” but Michael Denton sees intelligence in the design of carbon, its unique properties, and its relation to water.
In principle, the conjoining of the many Rare Earth factors could overwhelm the available probabilistic resources and serve as evidence for Earth’s design.

The firm belief in extraterrestrial life — a belief nearly universal in the scientific community — is an act of faith.
I picture Ohio University officials turning as red as Mars over Professor Romoser’s exotic claims.
