DGTempe, I tried to respectfully disagree with you, while at the same time supporting your cause and offering a correction. You, in turn, were very
rude to me, said I had no idea what I was talking about, and proceeded to keep that same attitude towards anyone who offered the same. At the end, you
called the whole thread miserable.
Now, I am perfectly willing to let bygones be bygones, I'd rather not be at odds with anyone on this entire board (though I know that won't always
be possible). However, if you wish for people to stop calling you names, and stop being rude, you may want to consider following your own demands, not
be rude to people trying to help, not ignore latent support by those who nonetheless disagree, and not disregarding your own thread just because some
intelligent discussion came from it.
So, I apologize for calling you names. It was wrong of me to let my temper get the better of me. My only excuse was my perception of my family's work
(and friends) be made a mockery of, and the snubbing of my good intentions to support your cause and offer a correction at the same time.
In the future, please understand that I do that, a lot (respectfully disagreeing, that is), and I will probably do so again in the future. This does
not mean I am attacking you personally, nor your beliefs, nor am I encouraging a flame war. It is merely, IMHO, a clarification that needed to be
made. Hopefully we can get past our disagreement this thread and remain on civil terms.

When I called you Monotheistic I was just referring using a tounge in cheek analogy to your description of Camp 1 or Camp2 that maybe you descredited
all other information or points of view based on blind faith, though as said only jokingly for debate not a personal tirade or attack.
Elf, I took no offense to the Monotheistic comment. In truth I didn't even notice it
However, I did take issue with the application of the label Quantum Physics to something it was not. Thankfully, we seem to have arrived at a general
consensus on the thread that, yes, the paranormal is probably brought about through microtransactions that can be explained via Quantum Physics, but
that QP itself is not a faith-based system of mind powers. And that was really all I hoped to accomplish.
That and maybe some chicken wings. Regardlesss, I didn't take offense to your post, I just strongly disagreed with it and found some parts rather
condescending. However, neither of those circumstances are alien to me. In any event, I'd be happy to remain on good terms with you.
