That last is really really sweet... congratulations, that one is destined
for the quotation file!

Of course, you are wrong that these laws are absolutes -- like all of
science, they are MODELS which we know accurately predict what we see. (Eric)


Thanks for the honorable mention. I am humbled. In my humility, I will
agree that physical laws are not "absolutes". But even assuming the absence
of absolutes, we DO make accurate predictions. I would say that they are as
absolute as we are accurate.
