Er ... this goes on the internet. My mom says I mustn't post my personal information on the internet, or she will wash my mouse out with soap. However, you will be fascinated to know that by idly tapping on your keyboard, such as I occasionally do, you can type pokpokpokpokpok very quickly.

My interest in evolution is that I used to vaguely think it was true - in school I accumulated beautifully printed glossy geology books, explaining the structure of the earth, it's age, and all the fine things you have in your glossy books-for-teenagers. When I became a Christian, I did not grasp the conflict between evolution and creation for a long time. Somehow, I put them into separate thinking compartments for figuring out later. And then later, I did figure it out - evolution is bunk.

I was with my Dad at a men's morning Bible study - probably the first and only time this ever happened - having a look at Genesis (with an outline from "In understanding be men", which seems to be a popular title for theology books). The leader asked, "I assume we all believe in six-day creation?" He seemed to be waiting for an answer, so I thought about that, and realised that I didn't personally know a single fact which was in conflict with a six-day creation, not that long ago. (Many people claim such knowledge, but I did not share it with them.) And so, I scribbled in my state-sponsored biology text book, and much much later I read Morris on the Genesis Flood, which I found eye-opening, even if rather tentative in its approach.

I find that the creation/evolution debate attracts some of the most interesting science. It shows that the universe is by no means done and dusted, as our text books would have us believe, and that there is a great deal left to discover. Biomimetics is a good example of this. They fluffed it on the origin of the universe, so they may have fluffed other important things too. You never know. The theory that says it is impossible shouldn't stand in the way of actually doing it.

On a different topic, I think that this book is worth a read, and that abiogenesis is a bit less likely than a compiler spontaneously coming into being on a computer, and then compiling its own source code, and that this sentence should end with a full-stop. There.
