Hi Mario,

Thanks for responding. You are right; my characterization of science is a little dated. I agree, and am pleased, that in the last half century, science has taken on some more subjective questions and tried to establish scientific discipline into such fields as psychology and sociology. I am pleased they are doing so, but so far, I am unimpressed by the results.

I am, however, particularly pleased that some really high-powered scientists have been working on cognitive science. I am eagerly looking forward to some meaningful results from them.

>>>I see no real alternatives to science to find this [the Origin of Life] out.>>My personal *OPINION* is that consciousness is more or less an illusion, an amalgamation of various homeostatic impulses into a central processing unit.>What do YOU suspect consciousness is, Paul?
