QuoteI also suspect that you struggle with these concepts and that speaks somewhat to your natural aptitudes or lack of them. But that's your problem. Not mineActually, it kind of is. The responsibility is on the scientist to explain properly, clearly & well so that people can understand. If you can't, you won't get much support for quite a while, no matter how good your evidence is.

Hi glovesforfoxes. I cannot expect anyone to understand the model unless they first read it. But the model is not the subject of this thread. I'm just trying to remind you all that academics have not yet reviewed the evidence nor attended a demonstration nor tried to replicate the experiment. And - I wonder if they will not lose their moral authority if this persists - especially in the light of the replications now going on all over the place.
Regarding your rude reference to my work on grizelda's thread - when one makes a prediction as a required consequence to a proposed thesis - and that consequence is tested, measured and found to be correct - then the thesis is normally considered to be a full blown or partial theory depending on the test and the thesis itself. Or is this only true if it proposed and tested by mainstream science - and the results also then conform to mainstream's requirement in term of thermodynamic laws?In which case, the universe according to Bored Chemist would never have progressed beyond the first scientific observations that we are the very centre of God's creation and all revolves around our little planet. I might remind you that those observations were also rather unpopular.
Did anyone else spot this?http://xkcd.com/675/
It gets me down when Bored chemist becomes excessively repetitive.
And as for Nixietube? I've composed my own little exercise in doggerel to give him his dues. ...Here's my tribute to Nixietube in case anyone missed it.This master of science and suchHas a brain that's in need of a crutchHe buries his qualmsIn a waving of armsBecause his logic's just not up to much.

Glovesforfoxes - Arguing for proclivities or food preferences is hardly the same thing as arguing the foundational constructs of physics.
witsend, were you in my local supermarket this morning shouting at the cheese?

Witsend,Might I suggest you read, "How to Win Friends and Influence People."I believe you would find it helpful.
