Now, _that_ is funny.

Or at least one hopes that the humor here is intentional.
Otherwise, we will be forced to the conclusion that we are
confronting textbook crank-think: my idea - or somebody else's
that I find congenial - is rejected not because it is fatally
evidence-deficient and/or wildly improbable if not downright
crazy, but because it is so brilliant people shake in their
boots at the very thought of it. I mean, why else could they
possibly reject it?

Congratulations, Bob. You've just made the skeptics' point: that
this is a crackpot position argued with crackpot logic.
