It covers a story about an MIT student, one Jeremy England, who seems to have some grand ideas about life’s origins from a physics perspective.
Wolchover spends a lot of time in the lead discussing the idea that this article doesn’t change or dismiss Darwin’s theory of evolution, something most educated people wouldn’t assume off the bat unless explained otherwise.
So it starts slow. I imagine it’s for the loads of people who might misunderstand evolution as a theory of life origins.
Anyway, now my post is starting slow.
Go check out the article. It’s a good read.
