It is of interest to me as well. It may well be the baby in the bath
water. I am sorry you have dismissed me as a dogmatist, when I was only
expressing a desire to avoid a focus on perceived illegitimate
enterprises. I am only speaking from the perspective I see from others
about this- I am in no way capable of affecting research or development
of any science or pseudoscience, I can only join forums such as this and
put in my two cents. And you can toss 'em back at me, as you have.
