Thanks for the quotes



Your welcome. What people have to understand is that most times he couldnt come out publically and say what was really on his mind because people would look unfavorably on for insatnce Princeton when he was there and could taint his message on things scientific. However you can really see what he thought in in private letters that recently came to light.

But he was religious! And, according to most posts here, religous people are narrow-minded lunatics who deny science...

Point is, less of the ad hominem. Lets just have intelligent debate, ok?


This is the meat of this silly, silly thread. It is a straw man fallacy which ignores the subtleties and qualifications of people's objections to religious fanatics.

He was open enough during that period that the religious right was demanding he leave the country over the issue and he was constantly giving hate mail at Princeton.
