(Troll post pasted below this note)

That was one of the most idiotic posts ever to any
intelligent forum that I have ever seen. Some persons with science positions can be idiot savants, I guess. Genie thinks Genie's friends have something to offer about God and Science...but
will only discuss it with persons BETTER than ourselves. May we wonder if Genie and Genie's friends are themselves NOT BETTER than ourselves?

Perhaps they have been given worldly titles (or perhaps not) but what is "becoming an accepted expert on God and Science" but "becoming the ultimate sellout?" Because... experts in this world are appointed by persons who frequently know less than themselves. That is why the masses usually follow the wrong leaders -- because the ones they follow were chosen for their animal popularity rather than their knowledge of the various kinds of terrain ahead.
Religion that enforces "natural laws" is really enforcing the law of the jungle...which is not what gave rise to the work of the reclusive Isaac Newton or the chatty Galileo Galilei. These are supernatural products of supernatural science.

Small loss, Paul!

not invite any of my colleagues here before I was very rudely trolled off this board.

Sadly, for this forum, it lost out on potential participation and networking with myself and many other
scientists and researchers. When I returned and reviewed the board, I was astounded at the
immaturity of content. It seems like at least 2/3 of the posts here are created by a single person and
are nearly devoid of any real content. Even Yanniru posted a nasty litte note, though why he would
even participate in such a low-level forum is beyond me. I can tell you I was quite disappointed and
saddened by the whole ordeal!

I posted to the forum a couple of weeks ago because I couldn't find Alan's email address and I
wanted to get more info about Stafford's work. I had discussed this paper with Chris and a couple of
colleagues. I am sorry to say that the whole experience was very upsetting and I am just no longer
interested in reviewing any of Stafford's material or attempting to have any colleagues or scientists
that I know review it or ever return to this forum again. This is because I get very tired of trying to do
the right thing in the face of cretins who would rather rail against their fellow human beings than reach
out to them.

Good luck in whatever you do. I would appreciate it if you or Alan, nice as you both have been to
me, did not email us again. We simply do not have the time and I really don't feel like going out of my
way for anyone in this forum. I will not be posting here again. Good-bye. May God be with you all.
