I would just like to say there is nothing new for me in any of what has been said in this thread. I too have been studying all this stuff and I have to say have probably read a heck of a lot more then most of you. I see your points I hear your information and I don't disagree with much of it, believe it or not, but yes there are points of contention.
I think this subject has hung up this site and until it is hashed out I doubt this site will go anywhere futher. With the way I have been treated in this thread I can assure you I wouldn't share the time of day with most of you, and I believe there are other people here who feel the same.
MH and I have been told that we only have an opinion not an informed view, and yet all other responses here are only opinions themselves. If anyone here has an informed opinion I would say it is Physics Prof. He has actually done study and written professional papers on it, which I have been studying. If I decide to stick around here we will discuss them.
Personally I think most of you are delusional and don't have a good grip on reality. The only way you can cope with someone like me is to smear, call names, and belittle, but you will never consider that what I am saying may have some validity to it. It's OK we all reside in our own little worlds we build up around ourselves, some seem to be microscopic worlds but each to his own.
To MH and a number of others here, your astute knowledge and observations have been appreciated by me and I Thank You! The rest of the crowd needs to catch up.
Edit: PS Please leave the pitch forks and torches at home.
