I've been following this thread with great interest. Sadly I have no particular credentials to back up anything that I can say regarding it....other than what I've read and what I've seen.
Howsomeever...as one gentle man once said .."Methinks he protests too much".
It's been my experience that when the personal integrity of the opponent is questioned then it's a bad sign for the side doing the questioning. It makes me wonder how strong their case is.
I've read the book by Micheal Fumonto <sp?> years ago...."The myth of Heterosexual Aides"....and I've followed some of the reasoning put forth by James P. Hogan (yes...he DOES write SF....I happen to like SF)....with great interest. So far as I've seen noone has refuted their arguments.
They HAVE however resorted to namecalling and mudslinging..
Still in Albq. NM.
