    You're not very good at this whole "conversation" stuff are you? It's always either a link or nonsense from you.

    Did yous figure out how deuterium is formed yet?

    Anyone who is interested can now take a closer look at that:

    Pause as desired for a detailed look.

    Quite. There are no mathematical models detailing how he works out the orbits that can be reached from that singular event, and how their orbits are changed to their current parameters. There is no explanation how the very long period comets could have come back quite so quickly, or whether when the first hyperbolic comet is discovered that will be a valid disproof on top of its failure to accurately predict anything about the solar system.

    It a woolly,post hoc and vague justification of his odd biblical fundamentalist literalism. I suspect even Brown himself doesn't really think it is a good model, but it is all he has.

    That's the killer for Walt's story. How do we see a comet with a period of millions of years, returning in a solar system only a few thousand years old?

    And yes, Kepler's laws rule out any shorter period for them.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Easy: The fountains of the great deep exploded with such force that the debris ejected into outer space reached superluminal speeds. Their speed was subsequently reduced by the drag created from the freezing of the water into ice crystals. Don't you know anything about the second law of thermodynamics?

    Ah. Never thought about how the Dunning-Kruger effect might apply here.

    Wrong, of course. The ideas are explained clearly.

    How about you honestly represent them so we know you've read that which you are determined cannot be true.

    There is no explanation how the very long period comets could have come back quite so quickly.

    or whether when the first hyperbolic comet is discovered that will be a valid disproof on top of its failure to accurately predict anything about the solar system.
    Well, nobody has the foggiest notion what you are talking about here, so we'll just ignore it.

    It a woolly,post hoc and vague justification of his odd biblical fundamentalist literalism. I suspect even Brown himself doesn't really think it is a good model, but it is all he has.
    Desperation won't help you.

    And for post hoc, he sure has made a lot of predictions that have borne out.

    For instance, the most striking was probably predicting that meteorites would be made up of rounded boulders.

    Predictions are the currency of science and Dr Brown presents his up front and clearly.

    Just your desperation.

    Luckily, we don't have to pretend that the macro scope of the laws you are applying here would be the only things affecting tiny pieces of space debris.

    Desperation will get you nowhere.

    For the same reason Creationists don't publish in leading science journals.

    In other words, because Walt's claims are physically impossible?
