I see, Hollerith, that you have not yet read "The Gift We Give To Tomorrow" where I define "moral miracle" as a miracle that isn't really a causal miracle because you got to a particular place and then declared it the destination; so it only appears as a miracle if you assume the invisible background framework as a fixed constant. Caledonian is simply engaging in his usual practice of taking points I have directly and repeatedly made, claiming I haven't made them, stupiding them up a bit, and claiming them as his own.

I guess I'll start being stricter about how much of Caledonian's posts I delete, since this apparently really is fooling people.
