quantum evolution

On several occasions in discussions about life etc friends have mentioned the theory that quantum mechanics dictates the way our cells work. In the past I have not been convinced. However this site http://www.surrey.ac.uk/qe/Outline.htm has a very well written description of the theory which is very compelling.

  1. That outline is a jumble of mystical non-sequiturs and doesn’t say anything at all. Any post modernist could have written such stuff.

    The second reference is way more interesting. First of all it gives a good review on the history of the discussion on the genesis of life. In the last paragraph the author refers to what is a very tentative speculation by biologist. This is all it currently is, and Davies makes that clear, tentative.
