Now that I've taken the time to skim read the article, its even worse than I thought.

"The practical benefit of saying an awful lot without having to turn your slightly inarticulate thoughts into an articulate email is obvious"

No its not. Just no. I'd love to hear the un-edited opinions of her employees.

No, sorry. One of the many useful things about emails is that they are searchable. I only delete junk or spammy emails and its not uncommon for me to search them for some bit of information I need. Even some that are years old.

I don't want to go back through 10,000 voice mails looking for some relevant information. Plus, I really don't want to listen to someone rambling on when I could skim it for relevant information in seconds.

Sorry, but I'm not angling for a categorical dismissal. I'd go as far as to say that we cannot 'completely' dismiss the chance that God or life exists in dark matter or any matter. The suggestion that all theories are equally valid is what I'm dismissing. You are bringing the assumption that God exists; there is no data to suggest that. Just like there is no data to suggest its made of chocolate. I refute that we have the same scientific knowledge for all conjectures.

I'm not sure what you're getting at with ''random" as a causal factor - but I do think its a factor to be considered, accounted for and perhaps reduced where possible. I guess that makes it a causal factor.
