Friends,

As you know, at Allan's request I had intended (for the time being at
least) to eschew any further comment on this subject. However, in the
face of such provocation I feel a brief response is justified.

I find it amazing that anyone should still seek to draw a parallel
between this type of nonsense and the very real phenomena to which
I have drawn attention. It occurs to me that perhaps Stuart - or his
friend, the anonymous author of the 'masterpiece' - would like to
pick up the gauntlet (thrown down by myself some time ago) and treat
us to a rational naturalistic explanation of the OBC phenomena.

In making this challenge I am conscious that some maturity and serious
resolve will be required - as, of course, befits the true scientist.
But I wish them well, and look forward to hearing their proposals in
due course.

With all good wishes,

Vernon
