That was interesting. I don't want to sound too glib, but there comes across a bit of lack of sophistication in Page's philosophical analysis.

That certainly doesn't take away from his work in physics.

Well, It seems positing a double arrow of time as long as they can be related by some equation is normal stuff.

I was wondering if a third or a forth arrow of time could be posited in the same way.

maybe t3= t"2 -t - 343,   t4= exp kti

The following is a deal breaker, for me:

I tend to be skeptical of philosophical arguments for the existence of God, since I do not believe there are any that start with assumptions universally accepted.

A philosophical argument with universally accepted premises  ? 

How about a universally accepted model of the universe ?

Maybe Don Page is reformed and believes in total depravity. I think TD entails a sort of rejection of natural theology right?
