I'm glad to hear it.

Why the arbitrary capitals, as in 'Pedant' ? Just curious, you understand..

Well, at least I bothered to read his site, which seems like a logical step,
if you really want to understand someone. Aren't you getting a little
overheated about this, perhaps because he refuses to be shot down as
easily as you require and demand ? When I first read Chris Lofting's
'theory of everything' I thought it was far fetched and silly. But then
I warmed to it, although still very sceptical. Then you appeared and
raised some very powerful points. I think Chris has failed to respond
adequately to the interference pattern stuff, etc, that you put forward.
I'm not qualified to judge, so I'm just waiting for some clarification...

Good. Perhaps I missed it amidst all the smoke and noise.

Ouch! ;-> but shouldn't that be 'tongue' ?
Sorry, just teasing Aaron. Thank you for a splendid and exemplary tirade
over the last few days. I'm enjoying it!
