Is 1 really 1?
Is Pi really Pi?
Is red really red?
Is a dog really a dog?

Likely you also read poetry out loud in public too.

Please stop using space and oxygen better used by chipmunks.

In science it always is.

Science as opposed to the popular press, the abuses of the uninformed lay-public, science fiction writers, and other who really don't have more than a passing interest in the subject.

Hey there! Easy on the Sci-Fi writers! We try to keep things at least consistent and in line with scientific possibility. If it doesn't sound plausible editors will trash it faster than you can send a superluminal message. There is some really decent science in Science Fiction these days. Don't paint us all with a wide brush, please.

I'll limit my negativity then to just the SciFi channel on US Cable TV.

- What? You'll limit all of your negativity to the SciFi channel.

But who will step into the role of SAGG's bulldog? smile

That statement was wholly confined to the topic of SciFi. I'll no more change my nature than a tiger change its stripes.

Good to hear - if you and Uncle Al started to go easy on us SAGG would lose some of its appeal.

Agreed. So when are you going to jump back into our discussion?

I am anxious to see whether you are willing to address the points I made.

A curious evangelistic reversal. You're worse than a Jehovah's Witness.

Do you do 'door to door work' to save the religious from intellectual damnation? smile

But seriously, yes - I'll go back and review some of your points and post some responses.

Regards,

Blacknad.

Worse than a Jehova's Witness? Is that possible without koolaid?

LOL. I think you meant Flavor-Aid.

"It is a popular misconception that 900 followers of cult leader Jim Jones committed suicide by drinking Grape Kool-Aid laced with cyanide at their commune in Jonestown Guyana in the late 1970's. The followers of Jones actually drank cyanide laced Flavor-aid, a cheap imitation of Kool-Aid."

Then Flavor-Aid it is. Although how you can have a cheap version of Kool-Aid might be like trying to find out what is smaller than small.
