Dr Catherine Collins

Catherine Dalzell was born in Toronto. She holds degrees in mathematics and statistics from the Universities of Toronto, Oxford and Carnegie-Mellon. She converted to Catholicism in 1983. These articles were written in the 1980's and 1990's --- some while she was teaching at Memorial University in Newfoundland, and some while working for the Canadian Red Cross Society. She is now a full time homemaker and mother of three small children. She occasionally publishes under her married name of Collins.

Editor's Note that this is here, simply because for me these articles are symptomatic of credulous fools that surely don't deserve a doctorate. Read the book Physics for Poets, Robert H March, Contemporary Books Inc., ISBN 0-8092-5532-4, for an easily readable series of chapters which show how physics has nothing to do with people who cannot accept that others can think and research. This book shows that what once was strange is not so now. Good grief, but that's the whole history of philosophical and scientific thought, eh what?
