Jerry,

I don't think Ray is saying that I'm Galileo, but that your
attitude of condemnation toward my research is similar to the
mind control found during the inquisition.

You have yet to present a single ounce of evidence that my ideas
are horse-laughable. I don't think you can. You have an eerie
faith that I'm wrong, so no proof is necessary. I hope he list
can see through this mindless fog of ridicule.

I consider this a pretty stupid statement, really not funny at
all. I'd love to discuss my reasoning, so why the attitude?
