Thank you Dr. Mengele. You can step out of the witness box.
Why do you use the internet?  It pretty clearly is the result of advances in several sciences.  Off the top of my head, it relies on: computer science, mathematics, electrical engineering, optics, and chemistry.
That I do not take science as my master does not forbid me from taking it as my servant.

Comparing GiC to Dr Mengele simply because he supports the use of the scientific method seems like a pretty egregious ad hominem to me. Sad

Recently, St. Tikhon's press reprinted St. Nikolai of Zica's essay The Universe as Signs and Symbols. I've ordered it, but haven't received it in the mail yet, so I can't personally comment on it, though from the description it also appears to include an outline of Orthodox natural philosophy.

Have you had a chance to read this yet? I have it on my to-buy list and was wondering how it was...

Yes, I put up some quotes from it somewhere around here. It's very short but worthwhile.

Thanks, I did a search and think I found them... I'll have to make sure it doesn't get bumped down the list Smiley
