Just started watching a documentary called Mystical Brain.  In the first few minutes it quotes O'Leary's Spatula Brain coauthor Mario Beauregard:
We lived in the country.  I had lots of time to think.  Already when I was young, I had an inner certainty that the essence of human beings, the soul if you will, was a phenomenon linked to the brain, but was not the brain.  One could not be reduced to the other.  As a child, I thought, "When I grow up, I'll become a scientist, and I'll demonstrate that."

It's a nice summary of the ID attitude toward science: "I already know the Truth.  I can't be wrong. Science's job is to confirm what I know, and by God, I'll twist and mangle it until it does."

And the set of natural numbers is also the set that starts at 0 and goes to the largest number. -- Joe G

Please stop putting words into my mouth that don't belong there and thoughts into my mind that don't belong there. -- KF
