Sorry, I Made An Error!

All I can say is that I am apparently dealing with some seriously obtuse individuals here! The post you refer to was inserted to point out a simple fact! If you will notice, except for the last two (because I was tired of typing), the lines alternate with concepts Alex holds as absolutely valid followed by a concept once held true by the scientific academy but now rejected. The simple point I was trying to make (and apparently failed utterly) is specifically stated in the last paragraph!

Woops, I screwed up--

"Only an idiot can believe there is no possiblility concepts are totally error free!"

was not at all what I intended to say. I guess I was just too disgusted to pay any attention to what I was typing. As my wife would say, "a senior moment". Sorry for the extra "l" in "possibility" also!

The idea I intended to convey was that only an idiot can believe there is no possibility of error in any specific concept: i.e., that his concepts are totally error free.

I am sorry for that! I shouldn't get excited but I have become pretty disgusted with the general level of discourse on this forum. There is utterly no communication taking place at all.

Sorry about that --- Dick
