Felix, the TPM link has a bug or a recursive script that gets a windows warning. I’d check the site…I had to stop the d/l.

The best part about Schlafly’s rant on relativity is that he “proves” relativity is incorrect by citing a story in the Bible where a father asks Jesus to heal his son who is miles away. Jesus says the son is healed, and the father later realizes the son was healed at the “exact” time Jesus said so. Relativity would require about a ten-thousandth of a second delay, which the father totally would have figured out.
