I don't need to check the calculations of your theory, I know you're wrong because it doesn't fit the facts. As I already said, the 1987 supernova event produced about 20 neutrinos in one second that were detectable in one of our primitive neutrino observatories, and it was not close, it was in another galaxy. The best the sun could manage is 1 or 2 a month. I don't want to be impolite but this is not a gray area, I'm right and you're wrong.
