I would have rather listened to Dyson on just about everything, and Gould
about Palentology and Evolution only, and Sacks, I would have listened and
asked about Neuroscience. Now as for Tipler, depending on how he decided to
respond, I am guessing that judging from Michael Shermer's questions to
Tipler in Skeptical Enquirer back about 3 years ago; he would've dealt pretty
successfully with all comers.
