Hugh is very, very smart chap, that I once met in person. I don’t buy all his theories (I think he isn’t skeptical enough about catastrophic anthropogenic global warming — he’s too quick to run with that ball), but he’s admirably relentless in ferreting out the universe’s witness of the glory and grace of God — the quantitative side of the qualitative picture.
I’ve lost touch with Hugh’s writings in recent years. His AGW belief just proves my point that even geniuses can have blind spots, or simple naivete. Bob
