< if the above statements are correct, then the OPT is FALSE ... Therefore
the OPT asserts the above claims are incorrect. ... I can derive the OPT
using different laws of physics, different fundamental laws of physics so I
am completely confident it is correct. I have a "consilience of inductions"
to quote your test. A conclusion following from the most firmly tested and
fundamental pysical laws outweighs an experimental claim which is
inconsistent with other experiments in the same area. >
