Andrew - I don't expect to see a comment like that from you again. If you can't defend the science, do not attack the person.Maybe you should try to take him on on his own terms? i.e. using facts and figures to support your argument?I should warn you, Sophie comes out of this conversation as looking a lot more reasonable than you.
So it's everyone else's fault?They do not have time, enthusiasm or facilities to do your experiments - it is your responsibility to put it in a language that they can understand and either accept or further question.You've also missed the point again - it's not the results that cause controversy, it's the explanation and extension to plants and animals.THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY ANDREW - DO THE REAL SCIENCE AND EITHER YOUR CRITICS, OR YOUR HYPOTHESIS, WILL FALL. REFUSE TO DO THE REAL SCIENCE AND YOU FAIL YOURSELF AT THE FIRST HURDLE.
I have found it both rewarding and intriguing and far more useful than trying to convince some people who obviously do not want to be convinced of anything outside of the convenient box.
The experiments came after the hypothesis not the other way around
Ben, given the fact that most schools and colleges have a budget that could easily afford a bit of plastic tubing, a length of strong string to pull the experiment up, a pinch of salt and a couple of empty bottles, it is hardly a question of resources now is it?
BC don't make me laugh. Please my ribs are aching as it is. Double blind study? Who is going to do this when it flies in the face of the literature they depend upon so much.
OK, so that's your excuse for not doing bouble blind trials (not a very impressive one but...) .What's your excuse for totally failing to do the maths?What's your excuse for persisting with ideas that simply don't hold water when someone else looks at the numbers?As things stand, if someone took up your ideas and ran with them and they actually turned out to be right then your epitaph might well be "Had some ideas about so-and-so but hadn't the abillity to follow it up with a proper explanation or investigation".
Make no mistake B.C I know who and what I am up against!
