Scientists get paid because they have themselves and their families to support.

This seems to be a common theme these days. But there is almost always something missing here. Actual quotes from scientists themselves either from articles in publications like Scientific American, Nature or whatever. In the case of the OP, what specific quotes or claims would he regard as "useless nonesense" beyond the vague refs to the BB and GH effect. Without some specific examples, its hard to debate it in any meaningful way.

"Elliot, it's blindingly obvious just in this one thread alone that you pussed out about halfway through, and now your just beating your chest. What do you think that does for your image/reputation? Would you put this thread on your resume?"

Meanwhile, back in reality, 6 of 53 people think that your original post adds to the discussion. Still can't figure out why this is?

Fortunately for everyone in general, you also lack the capacity.

Fortunately for me, Elliot, I am not that insecure where I have to show you every instance of your insufficiency.

"There are those around here that put up a more worthwhile fight."

Haha!

Still not coming up with any. What a surprise. You're a waste of bandwidth, Johnson. I'll just keep voting them useless. There are those around here that put up a more worthwhile fight.

My spell-checker, for instance.

I don't have to tell you about how I'd beat you in another context, Johnson. That's more for your kind. I'll just stick to beating you in the one we're actually in.

Are you talking about Elliot Bignell? OOH! I bet a roundhouse kick from him would be LETHAL!

It is disturbing how the religious right has adopted Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky for their attacks on the principles of science.

Be patient, he will admit that the trouble started with Rene Descarte.
