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
