Yanniru, the issue of the age of the universe is unresolved in my mind. I just finished a good book by a Jewish author ["The Hidden Face of God"--Gerald Shroeder] who trained at MIT and has a background in physics and molecular biology. He, like yourself, believes in evolution and an "old universe".

Oddly, Shroeder seemed to want to cling to the Darwinian-scenario despite the fact that it doesn't square with the data at many crucial points--something he admitted rather freely.

At any rate, I can't help but wonder if perhaps this notion that biology needs a lot of time for evolution to work, therefore, astronomy bases some of their starting assumptions on the premise that the universe has to be billions of yrs old.

I am going to keep digging.
