    Co-Inventor of the Laser and former nobel prize winning physist strikes blow at naturalism in a news story provided by Yahoo News.

    In the story Towne's is quoted as saying:

    "If you look at what religion is all about, it's trying to understand the purpose and meaning of our universe," he said in a telephone interview from New York this week. "Science tries to understand function and structures. If there is any meaning, structure will have a lot to do with any meaning. In the long run they must come together."


    Townes said that it was "extremely unlikely" that the laws of physics that led to life on Earth were accidental.

    If my memory is correct I read a story years ago about Townes' response to a question about origins. He simply stated: "And God said let there be light".

    A sub-movement within Nudism is also called Naturalism...
    After that little misinterpretation on my part the actual content of this thread is almost a bit dull. ;)

    You are absolutely right. I heard an item about them once on the radio a couple of years ago. Misremembered the name.


    ...you are one of them aren't you? [​IMG]

    "
    Most boring country in the world.
    Half the time I suspect that everything you have heard in the USA about the Netherlands since the early 70's has been carefully staged by the Dutch government to make the country look less dull.

    Mioque,
    The older I get (41) the more and more "boring" appeals to me. I don't have much use for nudists with lasers. :eek: [​IMG]

    I fully agree with you.

    Paul33
    I think I've admitted to worse things than that around here. Ofcourse others may disagree.
