Go to: 'Life chemicals' may have formed around far-flung star

"Light in the regions around a forming star is known to become circularly polarised like this as it passes through vast clouds of dust grains that are aligned by magnetic fields."

OK forgive me for stating the bleeding obvious but the Sun is a star, WHY must there be a mechanism for the transport of unchanged left handed amino acids from another star when circularly polarised light from the forming sun could easily have seeded the proto solar system with abundant left handed amino acids used by all life on Earth?

This 1% bias is fascinating - I was first alerted to the left handed bias in amino acids by a Richard Fenyman lecture, where the man himself held it up as elegant proof that Evolution was a fact.

The amino acids were made in the frozen material and asteroids permeating the early solar system and seeded all the planets, but only on those with suitable conditions for life could it get started.

we just need to join up the creation/delivery mechanism witht eh biogenesis and we have the full picture of how life starts anywhere in the Universe - And That About Wraps It Up For God!

Hitch - My wife and I are massive fans of yours, and my 10 year old daughter said to me the other day 'Daddy, I want to read God is Not Great next...' so she is a fan in her own right.

At least if you put your trust in medical science, you stand a decent chance of successful treatment.

Or you could try homeopathy.

Or entrust in serene and fatherly contemplation with your local Bish ;)

Thinking of you...
