The meaning of life is...

the more you know, the less you believe.

Last August some very important scientists (spanning from biologists to astronomers) gathered and talked about the state-of-art for the life origin and next-to-far future trends in bio/chem/phys/genetics research .
You will find the transcripts of their talk and the videos right here:

Very interesting. And somehow frightening: everyone talks about the end of Darwinism era (evolutionism conducted by nature conditions) and begining of genome juggling (lego-ing with dna to build new organisms and stuff...)

These days in Italy Pope Benedict 16 was rejected to plead his speach from University La Sapienza in Rome.

Far from being connected these two events reflect a simple thing:
the more you know, the less you'll (be open to) believe.
