In my last article I observed how Robert Hayes proposes that the universe could possibly have arisen from a quantum fluctuation. From there he concludes that “science offers no reason to invoke the extra metaphysical baggage some would lay upon us with ‘god’ hypotheses.”
Both Adam Hazzard and Joseph Palazzo are impressed with this kind of reasoning. But imagine if crime scene investigators followed that kind of logic.
“Hmmm, blood spatter on the wall. A bloodied baseball bat left on the floor behind the body. What do you think Fred?”
“Well Stan, it is possible that a freak microburst of air blew in through the window, hurling the bat into the back of the victim’s head. Therefore, forensics offers no reason to invoke the extra metaphysical baggage some would lay upon us with ‘murder’ hypotheses.”
“Good work Fred. Let’s go for donuts.”
