"A light release enables throwing the fastest pitch." I just heard that on the World Series
tonight. It is unnecessary to claim the other is "wrong." Just show me and let the argument speak for itself. What you have done in that argument is simply express an alternate view.
The idea that I am "wrong" is new with your latest post. You could actually try to make a case that my interpretation of the 10 Commandments was "wrong," but it would require more than simply stating an alternate version. It would be hard work! And while that may seem daunting, it may be necessary to work one's mind gently (ie. don't beat one's head against the desk) in order to be able to work hard, which in turn makes it possible to really think.
In one quarter in college, I turned in 150 pages of homework much of it in biology (counting a take-home test) besides taking a lot of other tests. And this was almost all using a manual typewriter or hand-printing.
So you know, I am not afraid to work, and to show me I am "wrong" you cannot be new to work.
