Ygern: "The comments section on New Scientist are a bit depressing."

Indeed. My favorite is this one:


Physical fields propagating at the speed of light are preceded by nonlocal electric and magnetic potentials.

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aharonov-Bohm_effect )

God is the sum of these potentials. Subtle is the Lord.


That's a new one! It's amazing how adept creationists are at sounding scientific without needing to do any actual science. It's all about marketing the meme -- which they've had 2,000 years to perfect.

Great series of articles though -- succinct and convincing.
