Hell I'm Australian and my wife's American. We had our two kids in Australia and we're cheering. WE had world class services and earn reasonable wages. Medicare in Australia works. And my partner who works in health is growing increasingly jaded with the system that functions for her back in the states. We're back in ND at the moment for family, and her relos can't believe how healthcare works back in Oz. but once they do hear they want to know more.

Over his Atheism? What you mean the guy that nearly didn't write the principia because he was so into his theologjcal research. That is from chapter 3 of Gleik on Newton many more similar references out there. Hell he even has religous discussion in the margins of his copy of the first edition (in rare books @ fisher at usyd - where i study). Newton was nuts, he was odd, he argued against the catholic church and their stubborn arguments for geocentrism but he was a pious man. He was no more athiest than Darwin or Milton.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
