Jar, I can see why you have an issue with a guy getting a worthless PHd from that little school in mass (MIT). Mechanical engineering has nothing to do with science or plate tectonics (his specialty). The Air Force Academy usually scrapes the bottom of the barrel for physics professors
Your close-mindedness is sad. I feel pity for people like you. You allow yourself to be blinded by the fear of finding a God, or admitting there are somethings that we cannot understand.
