Although Newton was a great man let's not be too quick to idolize him. Per Wikipedia:

Newton saw a monotheistic God as the masterful creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of the grandeur of all creation.[

I give it 1 in a million that christ was born at all.

Comment by Dr. Terence Meaden on December 24, 2013 at 6:05pm

A Merry Newtonmas to everyone.

Yes, Isaac Newton was born on 25 December, but there is only a 1 in 365 chance that Christ was.

As you can see Patricia, I put it on to the ORIGINS group for you.

Comment by Plinius on December 20, 2013 at 3:14am

Same for me Patricia - thanks for sharing!

Comment by Dr. Terence Meaden on December 19, 2013 at 6:39pm

Yes Patricia. Indeed I urge you to go on and put on to the group site ORIGINS the sentences that you put here about the additional knowledge and the URL about the dexterity of the human hand. 

Comment by Dr. Terence Meaden on December 19, 2013 at 6:08pm

Thank you Patricia for finding this useful article for me--about the antiquity of human-hand dexterity. Terry

I'm not sure I've started one in this group. I've started several in other groups, though.
Comment by Joseph P on October 20, 2013 at 3:04pm

Jeffrey, I'd suggest starting a discussion, in the section above this one.  A conversation like that would be a little difficult to hold in a linear format like this.  The nesting format of a discussion is much better for keeping things sorted and coherent.
