Hi Tim
I don't think you razzed me.
Regarding science rigor -- some on this list
have been attacking the importance of making sense. My comment about that was in response to that. Some of them answer a meritorious point
with a contemptuous reference to their lofty
academic degree. Others of them answer a meritorious point (or parade a bogus one of their own -- usually religious) with
a contemptous reference to the idea of science itself -- in other words, to the idea of examining their own ideas carefully and logically.
Neither one holds any water, in my opinion,
without explaining why logic (rigor) does not
apply in their particular case.
Thanks for asking...I hope to ask you a good question of some kind soon.
