And sometimes tenure has its downside.
Via Pharyngula, we find Christians behaving stupidly:
Hey, Frank ... you know what would convince me that God exists? A talking snake. Go get me a talking snake and then we can chat.
There's one evolving in my backyard right now. Hang on.........
How about the good professor break down his theory into individual components and explain each one? It defies all logic and PHYSICS to prove mathematically the existence of a being without substance or structure.
I'd love to see the entire process. You know...just for laughs.
P.S. - Did anyone besides me notice the professor is left-handed? Being left handed is considered a sign of one having the devil within him/her according to my father (and the nun who punished him for it), who attended catholic school as a child and was so often disciplined with a ruler for using his left hand his knuckles became bruised and bloody.
Tipler is a very iffy scientist at best. I remember speaking to him by phone years ago when he was doing astrophysics at the University of Texas at Austin and then quoting him in an astronomy term paper I wrote on then (late 1970's) recent developments in black hole theory where he took Stephen Hawking's work out of context and claimed that so-called "Hawking Radiation" would prevent any black hole from ever forming, only to find out that his work had been quickly and completely refuted after I'd handed my work in. I also remember he wrote a book and an article some years ago "proving" the existence of heaven and an "immortal" afterlife. Of course, providing evidence or even a method of remotely testing these claims is beyond the ken of this goofy lot of bible-thumpers.
Rubbish, sheer rubbish.
Ok, so he's proved God exists scientifically. Now he can shut up and go feed the poor in Calcutta or something.
Nice touch leaving in the tornado footage. A subtle but important point...
