"Of course, the identification of god with inferences of astronomical data is pure speculation."

True as stated, though no rule has been proven?

"But it is speculation that grings god and science together in a way that is quite meaningful for me. I am reminded of somehing in the Koran. I think it goes like this. We have no further need for prophets because now we have scientists."

Is Yanniru saying he agrees with that statement? Being so broad and general and yet stipulating no clear definition for its major variables, the statement's level of assurance seems quite hasty. It appears you are endorsing it, though based on past experience you are probably up to something else. Are you stating that we should consider that statement to be a universal law of science or can you see that it is just a statement to be considered along with all other statements, through a process of criticism and for its merits, regardless of who said it?
I'm not Harv, by the way. Maybe nobody is.

Mike
