Balance of Probability

On balance my tipping is towards science

The probability in otherwise uncertainty is


That we are descended from a primordial


Slime and antecedents that prefigure time


And personally won't believe in anything


Animate that did not breathe or ever live


I have hitched my star to the two wise men


Hawking and Dawkins who offer scholarly


Gifts of cold common sense and demur the


Biblical explanation of our mortal creation.


I've a certain notion that mankind's mother


Many times removed arose out of an ocean


I am not liable to give credence to any book


Of ersatz history that took millennia to cook
