Thanks for pointing out my over-simplification, George.
Yes, there is a continuum of priorities. For those at one end, the
priorities I implied (friends & family first, science second) should be
reversed, if these people are to obey the main calling of God for their
lives. At the other end are people for whom science is not important at
all. In-between are those who are struggling to do everything well (or at
least all that is important in their own lives), in balance, with the 168
hours/week that are available.
