Yanniru, aka Ruquist, has posted several religious
letters and claimed he was in "conversion studies." He made himself the judge of the whole forum when he said "Alexander is the least phony person here." I am calling into question his rigor as a (former) scientist on this forum.

I know of no excuse for a scientist using this kind of rhetoric:

1) Quoting my note out of context when the full text can easily be hyperlinked.
2) using my first name as if we're familiar,
then greatly mis-characterizing my intent.
3) placing my name before the public as having "discredited the New Testament," thus attempting to offend some persons and embroil me in controversy that should be his, not mine.

Mark Twain, a non-believer in most ways,
wrote respectful humor about the Bible and
married a believing woman. He later said he regretted the degree to which he had made her less of a believer.
Twain hung around with friends like Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison. Yanniru is not pulling rank on Mark Twain....or anyone, I think.
