  •  I agree with most of that. (0+ / 0-)

    But the effects of the laymen you are mentioning here are indirect: they do not develop new theories etc, but they do make you, the scientist, stop and rethink.

    Theology, of course, is not a science. There is a term for the science of religion in my language, but I do not know the corresponding English term.

    And Stewart was not out of his depth because he does not have a degree, but because his questions did not belie much understanding of either biology or religion. I say that as a Jon Stewart fan, btw.

    He who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
