Interesting article... to many uses of various derivatives of the concept behind the word 'assume' to be conclusive, but interesting nonetheless.
Very interesting article. I'll be looking for more on this.

I always laugh at my fellow Scientists who are frustrated that they can't understand the Universe and how it works. Well here's a clue:
A person with an I.Q. of 150-200 will never understand what God with an infinite I.Q. created. It's great to explore and enjoy all of Gods wonders but don't let it drive you insane, just accept it as it is.
Gee, its almost as if it was designed to support life.
Looks like it will be cold again, make up for all that damn rain today.
Perhaps Douglas Adams was right.
Maybe Earth is a supercomputer designed by the Magratheans and commissioned by mice with the intention of finding out the meaning of the question behind the answer to the ultimate question of Life, The Universe and Everything (the answer, 42, being already known).
I always suspected it.
I don't think what is stated in the article is entirely accurate, namely the assumption that the solar wind reflects the isotope make up of the sun.
Scientists have already hypothesized that isotopes would separate by mass in the sun, with the lighter isotopes moving outward. Those are the ones that would be dominant in the solar wind. This measurement seems to support that idea.
As for the argument that everything we can't understand has to be an indication of 'design,' that is simply nonsense. There are a multitude of things we didn't understand in the past that we understand much better now, and someone thousands of years ago saying an eclipse had to be an act of God wasn't much different then than those people who now point to anything we don't have an answer for an assign it to God.
I understand very well how a car engine works, but I am still fairly certain that it was designed.
