Hi K.E,

You asked...

...oh wait ,you aren't suggesting a cosmic quantum pantograph wrote the good book ....are you?

No? Those ancient scribes were dreaming....right?
Did I fail to mention that most people would consider me an Atheist in the same way Dawkins is an Atheist.  Technically I am agnostic towards God, fairies and orbiting tea pots.  These things might exist but I doubt there is empirical evidence any of them.

Where Dawkins and I are different is that I embrace Gould's NOMA.  I consider philosophical questions distinct and separate from scientific ones.  Philosophy is about searching for Truth (capital "T").  Science is about determining useful knowledge.

I believe the Oracle of Delphi was both accurate and prophetic with the proclamation that no one is wiser than Socrates.

I don't know the Truth, do you?

While the search for Truth is important, I generally find it more enjoyable, and fruitful, to discuss science.  At Telic Thoughts, I have a habit of suggesting...

Let's do Science!   :D

See my response to creeky belly for that.
