Murray, It is a surprise that you miss the point here. It seems almost as if you deny that there can be such a thing as a point - X! We have agreed already, however, that this is TRUE. THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A FIRST. Who will you invoke in God's Kingdom to refute this?! I am not speaking about Aristotle's physics vs. X's (unnamed, 21st century) biology-genetics! Do you seek to 'refute' the Church Fathers? What is a 'science lab'? Something to be worshipped? How anti-institutional, anti-hierarchy of you.

And I'll bluntly say that the tactic of refutation by referring to the date is the stuff of glaring intellectual weakness. It can be deployed for just about any position, even contrary ones.
