I 've just about caught up with the thread, and I have noticed a few things about some of the posters that should be addressed. There are those of
you that have not judged, belittled, or criticized the OP for his opinions, and instead, have addressed his questions with friendly science. You guys
are invaluable, and your patience and compassion is often the only glue that holds some of these discussions together.
I completely understand the frustration, and the urge to jump on him/her and crack jokes about how silly it sounds. I do not agree with anything he
presented scientifically, but I commend his/her imagination, and I'd rather the question/supposition be asked, than completely disregarded. Many of
you are providing the OP with excellent sources of information, and if he chooses to ignore it, that's his/her choice.
I guess what I'm getting at is; regardless of the age, intellect, beliefs, or mental state of the OP, you should treat him or her as you might a
child in school. Would you dare want someone belittiling and mocking your kid were they in a special-ed class? As I said, I sometimes have the urge to
violently shake my own opinions, or knowledge into others, but doing it in a hostile, or degrading way serves no purpose other than to make them stop
dreaming, and asking questions.
It's great if you want to provide your opinion, help the OP out with some classic scientific fundamentals, but if you simply want to actually spend
your time providing nothing but the poke of s tick and a cold glass of ridicule, please just move on to something more productive.
