Go to: The Dark-Matter Ages

OP

The Sanford Underground Lab’s main aim: to discover the nature of the mysterious “dark matter” that accounts for almost 90 percent of mass in the universe.

From NASA It turns out that roughly 70% of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 25%. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the Universe.

Prof Dawkins, early on in this deightful conversation, mentioned that celibate priests were not contributing to evolution. (I cannot recall the exact phrase)

But, is it not possible that they may well be supporting the genes in any kin?

Poor Wright getting confused about pseudo-random number generators. There are many truly random sources, such as the avalanche zener diode, to make non-algorithmic generators.
You'd have thought that someone who has written a book on game theory would have known this???

Go to: Francis Collins: Atheist Richard Dawkins Admits Universe's Fine-Tuning Difficult to Explain

Peter_E_Jones's Avatar Jump to comment 149 by Peter_E_Jones

There should be another option, e.g. "Read less", for articles like this?


But on Sunday, Nov. 05, 2006 in Time Magazine:

"God vs. Science" Collins & Dawkins did chat about fine tuning.
In there Prof Dawkins correctly & totally zaps that argument.

Comment 1 by Michael Austin

Is there a single nobel laureate who believes in Intelligent Design?

Dunno, but there are several that embrace(d) out-of-mainstream ideas:

Francis Crick (1962) suggestion about experiments on prisoners
James Watson (1962) on racial IQ
Brian Josephson (1973) on mental telepathy via QM
Kary Mullis (1993) on astrology and more . . .
Luc Montagnier (2008) on homeopathy, DNA electromag emissions
