I agree. In my next to last post, I said that this kindof "understanding"
had little or nothing to do with empirical reality, it's just arm
waving. Or masturbation, if you prefer. At least my arm waving was
succinct compared to Stephen's! I posted those references for the benefit
of anyone who would like to do the homework necessary to check out the
validity of Stephen's analysis. It would be an uphill struggle for me, and
I have a fair amount of experience in this business. Probably not worth
it. End of discussion, as far as I am concerned. I retire from the
field. You and Stephen win.
