In Science, Eye Witness accounts are the LOWEST form of evidence. If you cannot reproduce the results, and all you have is someone saying "Really! I saw this thing" then you have NOTHING.

Another point, Fischer is argueing the "God of the Gaps." That is to say, that the evidence for God is the gaps in Human Knowledge.

‘So, the only eyewitness account we could possibly have would have to come from the creator himself, and fortunately he left us an eyewitness account.

Or the Bible authors stole the stories from the Sumerians.....

re: #1 TDG2112

Eyewitness accounts are not all that reliable in courts of law, either. Ten witnesses, ten versions of the same event.

Also, eyewitness accounts from supernatural beings are not admissible in court, or in science. Lawyers will want depositions, and deities never appear when you really need them. And in science there's the whole bit about reproducibility. So, the science guys would God to create a whole 'nother planet, just to be sure he wasn't falsifying the data or screwing up his methodology.

Fischer and Mortenson together have offered perhaps one of the stupidest arguments for Biblical Creation that I've ever heard. Not surprising, considering the sources.

Well, you know I've been here many times, and only certain hours of the day when I'm here am I asleep; the rest of the time I'm actually awake. -- I have a filler on a dat with zappa being interrogated by a couple of swedish fans/state officers(who knows)...in which they are arguing over the pornographic contents of his work. he tells them he has been spying on them, and claims that their porno industry is bigger than that of the US. it's pretty funny. btw-this is from thew '88 tour.
