    Who else is discussing this with you? No-one, that is. And if I stop contributing here the thread dies, which is why you have kept coming back to my posts. There aren't any others, are there?

    No, there isn't. With no attempt to make quantitative predictions that could be compared against observations, they are essentially making emotional arguments. Whatever it is, it isn't science.

    Oh dear. They have failed then, haven't they, if that's all they've got? No point continuing here. You can never persuade cranks or fundamentalists, and no-one else is reading the thread either.

    gcthomas,

    I want you to watch these two videos. It's really just one video broken into two parts (less than 20 minutes total time). They have to do specifically with the SAFIRE project and are presented by Dr. Michael Clarage who is doing real experimental science having to do with plasma physics as it relates to planetary and stellar phenomena. I'm curious to see if you find them less objectionable than the others that have been presented.

    Threads die when people stop posting. People who start thread tend to want to keep them from dying because they are actually interested in the topic they've brought up but that isn't why I keep "coming back to your posts". The only reason I picked you back up this time is because I was sort shocked when I realized that you had cited the exact paper that I had just finished reading less than a half hour earlier.

    No, there isn't. With no attempt to make quantitative predictions that could be compared against observations, they are essentially making emotional arguments. Whatever it is, it isn't science.
    You're wrong.

    I suspect you knew that this comment was false when you said it. Why do you say things that are so easily detected as false if not outright lies? What exactly is the point of doing that? Calvinists do this all the time when they've been argued into a corner but you've not even been engaging the debate enough to have that excuse. Are you so threatened by even the idea that real science is happening along these lines that you have to disparage even the bare notion of it?

    Oh dear. They have failed then, haven't they, if that's all they've got? No point continuing here. You can never persuade cranks or fundamentalists, and no-one else is reading the thread either.

    Saying is doesn't make it so.
    It seems that you resort to instant name calling and ridicule because you aren't capable of sustaining anything substantive. That would explain quite a lot, actually. One wonders why you bothered to ask me, "So what part of EU would you like to talk about?" Did you think I wouldn't have an answer? Did you think that would somehow stump me into stunned silence? I really don't get it.
