Not only you made a big deal of a no-mistake but your denier friend jumped into it late.<quoted text>A certificate acknowledging a contribution does not a Nobel award make.
It's pretty obvious you made a mistake.
No one will hold that against you.
But....to continue to lie that you were wrong is abysmal.
Show some self respect and honesty.....for your own sake.
You were wrong......get over it. No big deal.
It was my terminology for Mann's early work. I explained its basis to you asap. OTOH I really appreciate how Mann progressed to become a book [two of them] author and how much he suffered many personal attacks by nonscience folks.
Btw you changed my words while you attacked. The start of all this was to get you read a book by Mann.. A Nobel-winning scientist!
