PUSH - Lawrence M. Krauss

Lawrence M. Krauss gave us a lecture about cosmology, string theory, evolution and ID. This quote stuck out to me as something that is applicable across many other contexts.

"Uniform expansion means that every place is the center or no place is the center. It depends on how you like to look at things."

Two related posts from a while ago are Physicists Getting Excited and Evolution Takes a Back Seat in U.S. Classes.

I have to also add that this whole ID "debate" really pisses me off. As Krauss pointed out ID isn't a theory. It's not testable. There isn't a basis for a debate. I'm fine discussing ID but it should be in a religious context as opposed to a scientific context.
