What? Even more unsupported claims ? Then it is time to challenge that type of
hype again. They are your friends (or so you say) , not mine. Perhaps
it is time
for you to get more aggressive and _demand_ an alternative -- or an admission
that they are not scientists in _any_ sense of the word. (I often have the same
complaint about some of the ASA "theologians" on this list ---- including
some of those who claim to have scientific credentials.....)
