Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

Re: William Christopher
It is ironic that on Dec 31'st, 2015, Wayne Rogers, who played Trapper John passed away.

Re: Doctor Irwin Corey, 102
He was hilarious. As I kid I remember watch him I think on Ed Sullivan. He was a comedic genius. Everyone should watch one of his routines.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.
