Life such as it is

Well the delights of exams and assignments is finally nearly done. In the next couple of weeks I have my final exams for uni (hopefully ever). The Biology/Biochemistry Masters program is a bit unusual in that the 4th year exams are held in September rather than November when all the others occur. Kind of scary to think these are my final exams.
On a dissimilar note it's also scary to think how many of the people I know finish uni this year or already have finished uni. By the end of next (when I'm likely to be considering writing up my thesis) I think there will be just about nobody I know still at uni (excluding the other Masters students). It is kind of sad to see people disappearing from uni going job hunting and all the rest, though in same cases it's more disturbing to see the types of jobs they end up getting.
Any way in the next three weeks I've three exams and an assignment worth 100% due in so I may be a tad busy.

On a different note a small group of us are considering doing the Able Tasman walkway/tramp just after exams this year (Nov 11 onwards) if your'd be interested in joining in let me know if you haven't already.

CCG Ball

Well the CCG Ball has just finished, lots of fun for all I hope.
As you might expect with the number of cameras present there is a decent number of photos around and some of the highlights of those will soon turn up on a certain photo blog.

I'm going to try something a bit different this time and add them all to one post in a logical order. So it will pay to check the post out a few times over the next week or two as I acquire images from Alethea's collection and hopefully a couple of other peoples.

Note as usual if you want a full res copy of a photo or have a good reason for one to be removed contact me.

Note if you see two copies of this in your feed it's because Bogger ate the previous post so I've had to repost it.

Here are a couple of questions that I've been curious about people opinion on.

1) What do you consider more likely?

Creation - ie The world is approximately 4,000 old Genesis is a complete and accurate account of creation.

Evolution - ie All life on the world is formed from evolutionary processes

Intelligent Design - A mix of both Creation and Evolution, an Intelligent Designer/Creator was involved in some role or another. More info

2) Does it actually matter?
Yes or No

3) Why? With regards to either or both
