I am worried about you more than I am about Alan.
The only reason Dr. Dick would not agree with me is because his persona on this forum is to be the disagreeable, overbearing, patronizing type -- a lot like the "his text" guy. The wizard of Oz gave them extra diplomas and now they don't know how to relate to mere mortals. Oddly, Galileo did not have the agreement of his colleagues.
They helped motivate the church to silence him.
It may, in every age, be always the same with these elitist types in their own time -- perhaps they mistakenly expect their knowledge, acquired by subservient accomodation of their departmental tyrants, to have magical powers which supposedly make the knower into a superior, strutting super-entity.
