Astrobiology[edit]

My problem is not with what biologists do. It's with the claim about what physicists do. It's absolutely not the case that physics asserts that everything mathematically possible exists per force. Physics allows for many possible phenomena that physicists don't necessarily believe exist - primordial black holes, wormholes, etc. The sentence clearly needs to be reworded or scrapped entirely.

@Swpb: Thank you for the note. My experience in the published literature and in the field is that when physicists compute the possibility of liquid water on Mars, they formally declare it habitable, even if it is a temporary water microfilm bathed in cosmic radiation, while they ignore the essential additional requirements for habitability. Anyway, instead of expanding in this miscommunication that happens often between the 2 disciplines, we can just drop the "Unlike physicists".

CDG update[edit]

With the Ayotzinapa case on the headlines, I think this news won't garner enough attention. Rogelio González Pizaña was released a few months ago and is apparently back in the game to restore the "old school" of the CDG-Zetas, according to the narcomantas. I thought you might find it interesting. Regards, ComputerJA () 17:11, 11 November 2014 (UTC) [1] [2]

It is beyond sad. The Ayotzinapa students case affected me like few things in my life. It is so real and so monstrous the state did it. Seriously sad and depressed, BatteryIncluded (talk) 01:41, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Indeed. It is one of those incidents that will be talked about for the rest of Mexico's history, but not for the good reasons. Hopefully this is a wake up call for everyone, and a breaking point in Mexico's public security strategy. All the best, ComputerJA () 02:50, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

User:Dienerto Edits: ok - or not?[edit]

Hello - hope you're doing well - *Entirely* ok no matter what you decide of course - but - if possible (and interested) - comments, if any, re the following would be appreciated.

Copied from => Talk:Viroid#User:Dienerto Edits: ok - or not?:

User:Dienerto Edits: ok - or not?

Seems User:Dienerto (contribs), without discussion, has been rewriting several articles (ie, Viroid; RNA world hypothesis; Potato spindle tuber viroid; Circular RNA; Non-cellular life) - in order to promote himself, his own studies and his own WP:POV - in addition - seems the editor is attempting to remove references to other studies, again without discussion, that may not agree with his own studies or WP:POV - the editor may (or may not) be correct in the contents - a closer look at the edits may be indicated - nonetheless - possible issues of WP:COI, WP:PROMO, WP:OWN, and WP:SPA may apply - comments welcome - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 21:28, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Discussion is at => "Talk:Viroid#User:Dienerto Edits: ok - or not?" - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 21:28, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Hello my friend. I am currently taking care of a family emergency. Will be out of WP for a few weeks or months. Can't take any more stress. Cheers, --BatteryIncluded (talk) 04:58, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
I hope your family emergency turns out not to be too serious. Hope to see you back soon. Un abrazo, ComputerJA () 07:58, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
@BatteryIncluded: - Thank you for your comment - no problem whatsoever - hope all goes well of course - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 14:26, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Life Began Shortly After Big Bang?[edit]

Of possible interest => "Chemistry of life" may have begun when the "Universe was merely 10-17 million years old", according to a study published in arXiv[1] - referenced in a recent NYT article[2] - FWIW - study seems somewhat consistent with my own NYT 2012 comment[3] - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 11:30, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Organics detected on Mars?[edit]

Of possible interest => On December 16, 2014, NASA reported detecting unusual amounts of methane in the Martian atmosphere (see => Results - Methane Chart); as well as, different organic chemicals in powder drilled from a Martian rock.[1][2][3] - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 01:35, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
