I am sorry but in my opinion you lost this one, and your only making things worse for yourself with personal attacks. I think it is time that you think outside your square and see what science and an open mind can come up with some valid explanations.
Nice try. There must be something in the water down there in Australia, that causes internet forum aggressiveness and personal attacks. My statements are verifiable by each and every reader by them simply performing their own field experiments. It does require them to actually go out into the field, after purchasing the proper equipment of course, instead of remaining in their comfy chairs and mounting attacks against those who fall short of their standards. Then, the burden of documenting their conclusions falls into their court. Uh oh! You on the other hand, appear to prefer to criticize, instead of experiment, because it's easier. Which reminds me of the 4 rules of (Fraudulent) Debunkers.
Stanton Friedman’s 4 rules of Fraudulent Debunkers are:
1. “What the public doesn’t know, I won’t tell them.”
2. “Do not bother me with the facts, because my mind is made up.”
3. “If you can’t attack the data, then attack the messenger, it’s easier”.
4. “Do your research by proclamation, because investigation is too much trouble”.
In addtion, you would do well in referring to a dictionary as to the difference between "defending oneself from personal attacks" and "mounting a personal attack", before mounting a personal attack. They are opposites. The previous intiator being FM80, is responsible for mounting an unprovoked personal attack. You have above, mounted an unprovoked personal attack. In both cases, the defender being myself, am simply defending myself against those personal attacks. Self defense is legal by U.S. law. Physical assault is illegal by law. Verbal assault is just in poor taste. Dictionaries are free on the internet. You do not appear to have a legitimate excuse for not referring to one. I refer to them quite frequently and am not ashamed to admit it. Granted, there are differences between the American and the Australian dictionaries, I think it unlikely that they switched the definitions of "defending against personal attack" and "mounting a personal attack". One more thing that I noticed, Australians seem to always want to get that last word in. Must be something in the water.
