Hi Kenyon - welcome to our forums.

The article was written by a scientist who says that science cannot understand certain things. He claims that science excludes the supernatural as an explanation; for example, science will never consider "God" as an explanation for the things that happen here on Earth.

He's right, because supernatural stuff (by definition) can not occur in a natural world (ie. Earth). If something happens to you and me, it must be (by definition) natural.

However, the man who write the article thinks this means science is flawed. We disagree.
"Polymath" means "having learned much"; the correct word for "having failed to learn much" is simply "Ray".

I've mentioned this in the admin lounge but our friend's posts here seem like they've been code generated. This could just be translating software or it could be a script, feel free to message me if you see any odd posts.

It's a little too specific to be a script. Although it wouldn't surprise me if someone is using google translate.

Dr. Hunter is no different than AIG's astrophyicist Dr. Jason Lisle and cell biologist Dr.Georgia Purdom who may look like qualified scientists on paper, but actually skew their science to fit their religious views. Many such scientists work at places like the Creation Museum in Kentucky and Biola University because they have had run-ins with their department heads for mixing religion with science at secular universities or just feel very uncomfortable teaching at a secular university and some of them feel their calling as a Christian is to evangelize through teaching what they consider "correct" (aka bible-based) science. Biola by the way is very fundy and is the school from which Ray Comfort's son-in-law EZ (Emile Zwayne) graduated from.
No Mr. Ham, the Flintstones is not a documentary.
