Now that is a pretty big assumption wouldn't you say? Who in the world would perform such an experiment so long as the question as to why the equation is correct cannot be understood? More jokes Harv? To expect any such event to occur during my lifetime is about as rational as expecting Christ to walk into my kitchen this afternoon.

You know, if you go back to Newton's critics, you will find that numerical differences between the epicycle predictions and his predictions were brought forth as evidence that his theory was wrong. People believe what they believe. Actually, no one on earth has any control at all over what they believe; that's why we have the word convinced in our vocabulary.

Have fun -- Dick
