*Gasp!* TroutMAC says Santa doesn't exist! ...(Does anybody think that TroutMAC could be a really clever troll?)

Trout is the real deal.

(Treading very carefully...) He writes with great fervor about randomness and genetics:
Quote
I've caught folks trying to tell me that DNA is a random assembly of nucleotide base pairs. Random. Think about it if DNA were "random", I should have no reasonable expectation that my offspring would be human. Or even viable as an organism. And oh yeah, I wouldn't even be here. You see, these folks are all over the map.

In 2000, his infant son was born with a genetic condition known as Trisomy 13, and died after just 18 days. I wouldn't wish pain like that on anyone. But it makes one wonder about the motivations for his position, vis my essay here.
