Disturbing in that a retired biologist seems to have taken it upon himself to act as arbiter in a debate despite there being no place for him at the table.The issue has absolutely nothing to do with him. He is a scientist, albeit a retired one; as far as I’m concerned the only thing he should be commenting on in regards to Robertson’s recent claims, is the science behind earthquakes, for which he doesn’t need to give a nod to the televangelist at all.

So it is your opinion that only theologians should comment on "God" and how "he" acts. That's a bit rich, considering that Richard, and many of the posters on this site, have a vast knowledge of the tenets of Christianity (and other religions in general), ironically greater than many practitioners. This looks like an attempt to put Christianity on a pedestal to avoid criticism and exposure. I hope that is not the case.
