17. That's all fascinating stuff

For me the name strikes me as a bit of a misnomer, or at least an odd way of talking about chemicals. The phrase "life's chemical origins" is much more apt, in that words "chemical evolution" leave out the most interesting part, the tie-in to life (except insofar as the reference is implicit in the word "evolution"). I guess it's just an expression I haven't run across before!

I'm not sure that chemical evolution is really a "controversial issue in science education," except perhaps for those who insist science conform to their prior beliefs.
