This also reminds me of RG Elmendorf's offer of $1000 for "scientific
proof- positive that the earth moves." Mr Elmendorf, of the Pittsburgh
Creation Society, will not accept the usual suspects, such as the aberration
of starlight, the Corilois effect, the earth's tidal bulge, the Foucault
pendulum, ...., well, you get the picture.
What's next, a thousand bucks for "scientific proof" that I am not a
figment of your sotfware's imagination?
