Joseph is one of my favorite agnostics because, unlike too many, he’s sensible and intellectual and balanced.

Short of saying, “The sun is shining today,” I’m not one to make scientific pronouncements. I’m too afraid that a physicist who happens to be passing by will say, “Actually, no. The sun may appear to be shining to you, but it does not shine. It gives off radiant energy in the form of heat and light. In fact using the formula (32 x 106) / (3.46 x 1016) = 9.25 x 10-10 where the area through which the sun’s radiation is pouring = 4 (pi) R2 = 3.46 x 1016 square miles only about -90.3 dB, or one billionth of the sun’s radiation reaches the earth. So ‘shining’ is not the word you want.”
Naturally you would not follow a correction…
