I agree with you about the "worship" aspect of Donald's message, but his
comment about TIME is certainly relevant; if one scientist invests 100
hours a week doing science, and another 40 hours (in order to invest more
time with God, family, and friends), which person is more likely to
accomplish more, when this is judged in terms of Nobel-quality science?
