What are you talking about? You seem to be lumping all "believers" (though a definition of such would be as nebulous as the premise, IMO).
You want your thread deleted? You are disappointed in the response you are getting? Why? How could you conclude blanket apathy when only a tiny
fraction of ATS contributors and observers (whether they are believers, non-believers, or fence-sitters) have even responded.
You had a good idea. It is still good. Why throw in the towel when it is still barely into the first moments of your query?
Just a guess, but your thread title may have discouraged more participation. It assumes that only "brilliant mathematicians" need stop by.
Rather, upon reading your posts, it appears you are more interested in developing a workable methodology for inviting space-faring travelers to pay
you (us) a visit. So start with that. As you've realized by now, it is what your thread is migrating towards in any case.
It is a healthy discussion. With such comes healthy debate. What's wrong with that? It may yield new insights and encourage you to modify your
thinking, perhaps provide you with answers ans solutions you had not considered.
I suggest you carry on. Invite additional input. Do not be discouraged by those that question your motives, techniques, or expectations.
Do not give up. Your thinking may have some flaws, but it is still worthy. Welcome feedback and make adjustments. Then take the next step
We need more inquisitive, energetic protagonists such as yourself. Pick up your banner and move forward. To do otherwise would be unfortunate
