TONY: This video talks about subsea biology. Most striking to me was her commentary on the cellular life spans. Particularly when she compares their life cycle and ours saying 'a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day.'

Thank you, Tony, for this brilliant, fascinating, amazingly illuminating lecture. I was bowled over by it. You will not be surprised when I say that the most striking thing for me was the statement that “all these species had to have had a common ancestor” – and the species ranged from bacteria to humans. The cell is the basis of all life, whether it was designed by a God or not. And whether the astonishing variety of living forms extant and extinct was divinely preprogrammed, separately dabbled, or the consequence of cellular responses to different environments, is one of the questions we have been discussing for days that are like years, or years that are like days!
