On the other hand, your pronouncements
carry great weight...such as your rigorous
elaboration on topics which you summarize
as "nt"
Scientific rigor roots out logical fallacies
and bad facts...but sometimes you are
just not able to do so...in which case you
must say "abracadabra!" or "Shimmysham!"
or "hogwash!"

Your post reminds me of that book excerpt I posted
which said science can help expose flimflam artists. In the book, they used sentences and paragraphs...as did Carl Sagan in
"The Demon Haunted World/Science as a Candle in the Dark"
But since your name is so much more respected
in science than Rutherford or Sagan,
you can accomplish the same thing by just saying,
"Shimmysham!" or whatever you said.
