In an attachment found in Keith Miller's post
Robert Gentry claims:
<< More recently, see http://xxx.lanl.gov/ for year 2001, I
reported it also accounts for six other of big bang's major predictions. >>
Maybe it reflects my own incompetence or indolence with the use of
search engines, but I tried checking out this URL at Los Alamos
National Laboratories (xxx.lanl.gov) and couldn't find anything
by Robert Gentry or on Polonium halos.
In any case, I would think the more appropriate place to submit
such arguments is to a society devoted to geophysics or geochemistry
since physicists are not (in general) well versed in petrology and
geochemistry. IIRR (if I remotely recall), geophysics receives even
less attention than biophysics in the APS.
This also gives me the feeling that peer reviewed journals are
still the essential forums. I say this despite the aggravation
that "fundamentalist-like" reviewers can cause with their narrow
minded quibbling: mere cavil that slows down, stalls, and
otherwise stands firmly in the way of scientific advancement
and understanding. <caveat> I only pray that when it is my turn
to be tested, this irritating process hasn't transformed me into
one of those kind of Pharasees <\caveat>.
By Grace, and Grace alone do we proceed
