First, about me:
Look, dude. I don't really care what institution has certified you. You either make a logical, sensible point/statement, or you don't. You either
have the capability to analyze a situation and apply critical thinking, or you don't.
I'm giving you this opportunity because
My apologies. Thank you for spending your incredibly valuable, industry-certified time with us. Would you like us to stimulate your scrotum with our
tongues while you give yourself fellatio?
Here are my rules:
The Golden one?
[list of rules]
So, basically, you are just like anyone else; you have limited knowledge and experience; you just lack the ability to understand that human beings
(even scientists) are able to be congenial and simply inform someone: "I don't know. That's not my specialty." - or "I think you're
You, pretty much, just listed a bunch of "rights anyone has to any conversation, particularly public ones on the internet."
I will not give out any personal information, or tell you any specific papers I have worked on. I don't need anyone tracking down and
harassing my colleagues and coworkers. We get enough letters and e-mails from crackpots, we don't need more.
This is the internet. If I really want to, I can show up at your favorite coffee shop (or some other business establishment) and tell you the name of
your first dog. Or, even more fun, distribute your internet history to your friends and coworkers.
Further, you're being very insistent upon being taken seriously; which means you really haven't worked on anything important... or you have quite
the charitable outlook on things.
You think if I had a job where I worked in the fields I'm passionate about, I'd be on here much? Nope. I might drop by from time to time (like
Phage, Boncho, etc); but I'd spend my time doing what I absolutely love and have the resources to do.
Needless to say - were I employed in the R&D field (or could somehow get paid to interpret the field/lab work of others and create theories off of
it), I'd be a happy camper and exploiting their resources to the fullest.
I don't doubt you are a "scientist" (usually one would be more specific about their field of accreditation - such as degrees). Every person is a
'scientist' in that we all apply the scientific method to problems we hope to solve.
I just don't think you're as #-hot as you think you are. My ego can barely fit through the damned door, but I'm humble by comparison.

What is the force that makes planets, galaxies, or even atoms '"spin"? Or what is the nature of spin?
Planets and other bodies likely spin for different reasons than galaxies. Planets will spin based upon the vectors of the orbits that combined to
create the planet, in the first place (presuming that model is correct, of course). Stars likely spin/rotate for the same reason (spare for they are
created in orbit about the galactic mass).
Answering how things started spinning beyond that is a lot of guesswork (well, it is all guesswork; you can never really prove how something in nature
happened unless you were there to observe it happening... even if you can reproduce the results in a certain manner, it doesn't conclude that was the
manner in which it occurred). Without being able to solidify a single origins model (the "big bang" has always been a sort of stop-gap that
doesn't really work in terms of physics, but we derive from observations of the visible universe) - it's difficult to model or postulate how vector
rotations began in the first place. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try - but just be aware that it's not a "we know this to be true" sort of
Unfortunately, that's just the preview - but it gives you an idea of how that particular group is thinking.
This is a page reference within a much larger publication that briefly discusses origins and moves on to observations of orbital/rotational behavior:
Not sure if that answers your question or not - but I always find google/bing/metacrawler to be a fairly good e-search tool to help get you started
down the right search terms to find more accurate and pertinent queries.
