No, Allen. I could comment on much of what you
said but, rather, I just take it in as
information. What you said was basically your
opinion and I respect that. I don't believe it to
be true but what is the sense of objecting?
The ones I spoke below are about facts, not
opinion. I could elaborate more and say that I
think Morris is a flat outright farce and anyone
who accepts his statements has no understanding of
basic physics whatsoever. I think that is probably
true of many at ICR. I agree with with Burgy's
line characterization as "Liars for Jesus"

In any consistent theory, there must exist true but not provable statements. (Godel's Theorem)
You can only find the truth with logic If you have already found the truth without it. (G.K. Chesterton) ===================================
