That's kinda what I thought when I saw his comments.
It would just be nice if, when folks are commenting about the scientific
information under consideration that they would be clear in admitting
that their position is simply based on their interpretation of a certain
text that trumps any real world evidence to the contrary.
It would save time.
Of course, if they think they have a scientific position that might
support their textual interpretations, my "Goliath" is still waiting for
a "David" to show up.
Still no "David"!
Or, one could even possibly engage my "Goliath"'s cousin, though the
consequences may be more severe.
