Thanks for the approval.  Does anyone in the group perform funeral services?  My wife and I are new to Cleveland, TN.  We retired to Milton, FL but we got tired of the hurricanes.  The cost of living is a lot less in Tennessee.  Tennessee is a beautiful place to live.  I am glad that I found your group.

Just to say that on 5 February 2014 numbers in the "Origins" Group (initiated in September 2008) reached 4000. 

Thank you everyone, and welcome again to all. Terry

Yeah, I've heard about Finkelstein's work on the subject, previously.  I just haven't read any of the actual books.  I'll have to look that one up.

Well yeah, he was kind of a nut in other areas, too, such as with alchemy.  Brilliant in mathematics and physics, but a bit off in others.  Even the best minds have their strengths and weaknesses.

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.
