Jonathan scolded Moorad with these words (among many):
"What would it take you to realise that things may be demonstrated to be
with out a physics like rigour (what ever that is)?"
In defense of Moorad, with whom I have many times disagreed, I offer the
comment of Samuel Boswell, who, though not a builder of furniture, opined
once that he could still evaluate a chair as a "bad chair" without being
able to do better.
Coming, as Moorad does, from a background in physics, I think I
understand his position, although I am not about to call another person's
field of expertise "bad science." Well -- in the case of JB Rhine, maybe.

But I have always been concerned about the level of quantification in the
evolutionary theories. That does not make them "bad," of course, let
alone "untrue." But "uncomfortable" is a word that does come to mind.
