Hi Alan,May I ask you why you started insulting me and posting what I perceive to be a rude response to my explanation of one of your questions? I've always tried my very best to be as polite as possible to people I'm trying to help. And if my explanation is perceived by some to be over their heads then I need to be told that so I can make the appropriate adjustments to my responses. Insulting me is of no help at all. And responding with Nonsense! is not only very rude but quite wrong since I know what I'm talking about. That kind of response doesn't help anybody. It doesn't give anybody any idea of why you thought it was nonsense. To be quite honest it showed me that you didn't know what you were talking about. Later on in my recent post on energy you clearly showed that you agree with the concept of energy as I know it and as I described it in my webpage.So why the insults? I never insulted you so why insult me?Pete
"Pete I deeply regret hurting you by my uncalled for insult", in fact I did not even read your post and without thinking, saw what I wrongly assumed that you thought energy did not exist (I am not sure if this is the post you are referring to)
No excuses from me!, Pete I was wrong and apologise profoundly to you and ask for your forgiveness. Even at my rather advanced age I can both learn from a person like you, who has an advanced understanding of sciences and physics, and change my ways for the better, which I am now active doing in the forum.
Maybe the quality of my questions should show that I have more than a basic grasp in the sciences for which I think I deserve a little credit. As an engineer in the Electricity supply field in South Africa I had to understand physics as it applied to heat engines or thermodynamics.
I am a volatile person and your comments led me to believe that in you eyes, I was totally ignorant on all things physics. "You do dislike being challenged" and when I did this in a polite way on your forum a while back you blocked my access to your site.
What set my off is what I saw as disdain from you as to my contributions and answers.
Unlike many of the others I try my best to explain physics "just in words", to the less informed or occasional visitor, in an understandably succinct way, free of complex equations or extreme details that might just muddy the understanding of the reader.
If you read my last posts in the forum you will notice I have stopped unnecessary rhetoric and have decided to be polite in future to everyone in the forum especially you Pete!
Please if you have used the ignore option on me, pleas cancel it so that we can again engage meaningful dialogue?
