"Distribution curves are obtianed from numerous measurements. Theory does not produce distribution curves unless statistics are thrown in ad hoc. The migation time of solar particles from the interior to the surface is all theory, no data. Therefore, it would be misleading to cite the predictions as a distribution. It's like asking for the distribution curve for the big bang."

Of course, I never said I wanted "predictions as a distribution." I want measured data. I did not know they were passing it off as fact before measuring. Theory is tested by measurement (as you knew long, long ago when you were a scientist... if you were :).

How do you know it's my smokescreen?
