Yes, and the SPOG (Scientific Proof Of God) is going to
take a real pounding before the world realizes it's arrived.

Yes, that's on the verge of happening right now in Kansas
where the Creationists actually had enough muscle to twist
the arm of the Kansas City Board of Education to get
Evolution partially banned in the schools (God bless em).
Now the scientifically backed Evolution proponents are going to
sue the Kansas City B.O.E. claiming that teaching Creationism
is illegal. Or, alternatively, the Creationists could flat
out sue in the Kansas State court that Creationism is a scientific
subject, based on the discovery of a SPOG. That's where HAMMOND
comes in. If there IS a "scientific proof of God", then the
Creationists have just as much of a scientific leg to stand on
as the Evolutionists, and the courts can't ban teaching Creationism
because a SPOG makes it a "legitimate scientific subject" just like
It's going to happen Bob, I can assure you. The wind's blowing that
way. The Creationists and Fundamentalists are going to come out of this
smelling like a Rose, and the scientific community is going to
look awfully stupid. And I'm a graduate physicist saying that.
I tried to warn them.

Yes, that's the plan. The SPOG is cut and dried. All the evidence
is sitting on the library shelfs. A Blue Ribbon scientific committee
could evaluate the thing in two weeks. And they'll make sure the
committee is impartial too, or there'll be a Congressional
Investigation about it. Half a dozen Nobel Laureates will be on
that Blue Ribbon committee.

There'll probably be a half a dozen t.v. scientific documentaries
and a Hollywood film out about it by then. Every scientific institution
in the world will have taken a position by then. a scientific proof
of God, are you kidding, who wouldn't have an opinion?

There's no doubt that once the scientific community recognizes the
SPOG, then there's nothing the Supreme Court can do but rule that
"God is a legitimate scientific subject", and a scientific theory of
God must be taught in the public schools, Creation and all. Of course so
must Evolution, since the discovery shows that BOTH theories are
absolutely scientifically true... and not in contradiction with

Boy you can say that again. If I was the President I'd be sweating
bullets waiting for the proof to be confirmed. How'd you like
to sleep at night with a nuclear button sitting right outside your
bedroom door- with only a prayer to God that it's not going to
Creation-Evolution Supreme Court Challenge
PRESS RELEASE (5-25-2001)
My latest position is that the discovery of a
scientific proof of God (below) is going to be used by
the religious Fundamentalists to deliver the
biggest and most embarrassing kick in the pants that
Science has ever received, and that it's going
to happen when the Fundamalists, or Creationists
use the scientific proof of God as a legal defense
in a Supreme Court showdown over the exclusive
teaching of Evolution. The supreme Court will rule
that Creationism (and God) can be taught as a
"scientific subject", along with Evolution.
