If living matter is not, then, caused by the interplay of atmos, natural forces and radiation, how has it come into being? There is another theory, now quite out of favour, which is based upon the ideas of Lamarck: that if an organism needs an improvement it will develop it, and transmit it to its progeny. I think, however, that we must go further than this and admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it. (H. J. Lipson, F.R.S. professor of physics, University of Manchestor, UK, A physicist looks at evolution Physics Bulletin, vol 31, p 138, 1980)
