I came across a comment on this 2007 article on Uncommon Descent. It is a peer-reviewed piece in the online magazine Biology Direct (of which the author, evolutionary biologist Eugene Koonin, is also by chance an editor). Its premise, basically, is that the huge statistical improbability of the earliest life arising by chance can be solved at a stroke by adopting an infinite multiverse cosmology. Koonin specifically points out that this obviates the need for any intelligent design. It is hard to exaggerate what an affront this is to science, and even common sense.
