> Yeah it was Rutherford. I wondered if a physicist would jump on me and
George has! It was first thrown at me in jest by my uncle Grenville Yarnold
who was a physicist clergyman who wrote several science and religion books
in the 50s and 60s. I do think some physicists are redeemable - e,g George
and Howard van Till for starters!! Dont take this too seriously!! The
difference between George and Howard and myself are probably minor ,
thoroughly creative as opposed to thwarting any learning of the truth.
To be serious far to much understanding and philosophy of science is geared
to physics as THE science overlooking the historical sciences. This
perpetuates the problems and misunderstandings.
Regards (to physicists as well)
