Besides, we can't be straddling between two theories, lets just pick one and go with it for as long as it takes us.
Personally, I don't think that intellectual method is the route to success. That's groupthink. And it shuts down curiosity and possibility. And, pyropeach, excuse me, but that seems like quite a reversal considering your most previous statements.
Whichever theory you decide to investigate is up to you. We are blessed to have many people on the forum, and this gives us the opportunity to do more than a single researcher can. I think we need to really employ the scientific method ourselves if we are to get anywhere. It should be possible however to keep more than one theory in mind if you use your intelligence.
