"elite intellectual circles"?!?<quoted text>
.. there's nothing to prove because Catcher made no claims. Too much has already been revealed and no, I will not put forth any additional information ..
.. I have no need to review your credentials because I believe you. Your posts with HFY reflect an understanding of science only attributable to higher education ..
.. look, Catcher inflicted an ouch on you, there's no doubt about it. For what it's worth, I do not think it noble. My guess? He became impatient with your logic because he travels in elite intellectual circles ..
.. nobody, including you, should have to prove themselves ..
HA HA HA !!!
The result of that nonsense is a self-organizing, self-validating circle.
