    Pre-cambrian Animalistic Phytoplankton

    wow! Diatoms strike again. Apparently they had a urea cycle (but nothing like kidneys!) before metazoans were big:

    Well, if Darwinism is right, you'd expect that shurely?

    I'm off to read the Good Book now, just in case Darwin was wrong.

    Half of what I say is meaningless... The other half is complete bullshit. Guess the references.
    Now polluting Wordpress too.

    I checked in the Good Book under diatoms and lo, it said unto me:

    Prepare ye not the diatom save with thy kidney-sheath or, low I will smite thee in thy loins and count-up the short remaining seconds of thy miserable life with a flute made of thy thigh bones.

    Thus saith the LORD thy GOD.

    Just kidding. No. The part about the thigh-bone flute I made up, but in burning letters I read all the rest and I was sore afraid and I quickly wrote a psalm or two all in the most perfect simple heart-felt haiku:

    I see Diatoms
    burning in the sea
    my tears mean nothing

    Burning in the sea
    I see diatoms
    my tears mean nothing

    my tears mean nothing
    I see diatoms
    burning in the sea

    and so on --
