Quotes

"Then it’s just a nice story, people also tell me stories involving turtles, God, and so on — these stories are all equally impossible to test. Mulitiverses, for example, is a nice theory, it sounds good, but if I can’t test it, I don’t believe it. I don’t say it’s wrong, but I can’t say that it is right either. At this point I am an agnostic in it’s purest form" he concludes with a smile
Congratulating both fellows, Professor Jill Trewhella, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), said, "The Laureate scheme recognises the best research in Australia and from around the world. I am very pleased to see that two of our research leaders have received recognition of their work."
...He said society would not be able to get rid of evil until and unless children were allowed freely to play with basic science. "Allow children to play with science and soon you will see astrology and 'vaastushastra' losing ground in the country" Narlikar added
