Gregory Chatin on Metabiology

Since there is ongoing discussion about Algorithmic Information Theory in this forum, I thought people might be interested to know that Gregory Chaitin, a key figure in AIT, is an advocate of putting biology on a firm mathematical basis so that levels of mathematical certainty in evolution could be defined. Chaitin is aware of Intelligent Design, but maintains that a more rigorous approach must be used, hence Metabiology. Unfortunately, Chaitin gets hand-wavy about how that might be done, but I think he is probably correct about the approach.

I hate it when I spot typos long after the fact!
