LUCK BEING THE RESIDUE OF DESIGN:

Plate Tectonics: Earth's Lucky Geology (Larry O'Hanlon, 1/12/08, Discovery News)

Four decades after the rise of the great, unifying theory of plate tectonics, geologists are still scratching their heads over a lot of the details.

Unanswered, for instance, are basic questions like how the shifting and colliding of plates got started, what keeps plates moving, why other planets in our solar system lack plate tectonics, and how important all the geological turmoil might be to the evolution of life.


If only Galileo were around so we could burn him at the stake.
