Harv,

>>>"I'm sure what why you have a problem in finding explanations for reasonable problems that exist. Asking 'why' is a perfectly suitable question and one in which fuels science."

You have misunderstood what I said. I should ask you to again read my previous posts. I do not "have a problem in finding explanations for reasonable problems that exist," nor have I even hinted at this. Indeed, the assertion, "asking 'why' is a perfectly suitable question and one in which fuels science" could easily be included in my opinions on this matter.

>>>"Until a relationship is established they must remain coincidences."

Interesting -- your wording reveals the difference in our opinions. To paraphrase what you have said here, if I may, regardless what they actually are (coincidences or not), they "must remain coincidences" until we've shown that they are not.

In other words, if we do not know a thing, it is better to define it and be wrong than it is to tell ourselves that we cannot define it and withhold judgment until such time that we know more about it.

This neatly condenses our disagreement.

-LH
