I just came across this. I found it amazing that the WSJ would publish the rational opinion of a scientist! Maybe I just don't read it much, with their on-again off-again attitude to the web.
I wonder how the Palin-ites react to all this 'creation of the universe' science? They must think it just a perverse joke of the Big Guy, to keep all those useless academics amused. Certainly, they don't want any of that shit in the USA!
