    Or even understanding enough to be coherent about what they are supposed to be reporting on.

    Like the stupid “White on White” canvas that critics were falling all over themselves and priced accordingly back in the 50s or 60s. Only matched by the NFT craze of today.

    Going home? Not follow and arrest? Caught in the act of a crime and ignored? Even if you are off duty you could call for backup. What kind of cop are you, Joe? Very disappointing.

    Shades of Abbot and Costello. I can’t stop laughing.

    “It is accurate to put such beliefs on the same level as religious ones”

    No, it is not. Religion is based on myth, fantasy and wishful thinking. Science is based on logic, evidence and experimentation. Over the centuries the various gods (of war, thunder, water, etc) have been debunked as our knowledge of nature has improved. While our knowledge of “life” and its beginnings is still limited our “experiments” are but an infinitesimal drop in the bucket of nature’s millions of years of continual experimentation. Science, at least, presents a plausible path for the creation of life. Religion presents a fantasy.

    Elliptical. Perfectly circular orbits do not exist. The Earth’s eccentricity is 0.017 (perihelion and aphelion differ b about 3%).

    “Not sure how time and numbers prove or disprove anything”

    Sorry that you can’t see it but nature’s millions of years of uncountable “experiments” go far beyond anything conjured up in a human lab. That nature creating life may seem or be highly improbable is irrelevant. Success is self selecting. We are here, we exist – life succeeded. The “failed” experiments failed and do not exist.

    You exist because one highly improbable sperm succeeded. The millions of other “experiments” (sperm) failed and their possible futures do not exist.

    " I use the words [which and that], nearly interchangeably in the sense Adams uses. The distinction is without a difference."

    Exactly. Sentences read much better when alternate words are used instead of repeating the same word over and over.

    " yet we see circular orbits throughout the universe. … The way to achieve an orbit like Earth’s and the other planets in our solar system… is via intentional manipulation."

    Another poster child example of the danger of a little bit of poorly understood knowledge being (intentionally?) misinterpreted and being used to promulgate misinformation and/or religious agenda. The Earth’s orbit is NOT circular. Its eccentricity is currently ~0.017 (perihelion and aphelion differ by about 3%).
