I wish Lennox wouldn’t keep calling himself a Scientist. He ISN’T! He’s a freakin’ mathematician. I’ve a degree in maths by the way and the one thing I can tell you is that the biggest idiots I’ve ever met in my life were during my degree course at university. The mathematical methodology makes mathematicians immune to physical evidence because you never need it in maths. Since the discipline is all in the mind (ok on paper or PC) they seem to think that you can argue for physical things entirely in the mind without reference to the REAL world. It drove me batty back then and if Lennox is anything to go by they haven’t changed much since. Common sense and mathematical ability seem to be inversely correlated.
