... it's a bit like saying you have doubts about the accuracy of a thermometer that reads 25°C, so the temperature must be -80°C.

Of course, some people do not like to debate science at all, and prefer Faith, which I suppose is easier to do if you're absolutely convinced that yours is the true one.
However, some would countenance no debate at all. Witness the bizarre attempts to spam THIS thread with gibberish. Unfortunately, the individual doing so does his own cause little good, and his credibility even less.

I am a Trekker, and I find Star Trek has rolled into a mythology much like Robin Hood, King Author, and other vehicles that harness imagination and asperations with elements that make us what we are as a people.
I enjoy the new series a great deal, and do not have problems filtering out the Treknobabble from fact, and it has given me a better grasp on how big the universe is, not shrunk it down to TV set size.
I thinks this author worries too much about stuff that has no basis in fact. In spite of this, I hope he lives ling, and prospers. ;-)
