It's okay, it's finals week for me and I get alittle touchy with no sleep.
:) Sorry if my tone was less then friendly.

Well, I didn't mean to say advocates are unscientific, but I think that
the blanket acceptance and advertisment of a hypothisis  as fact just because
it's the most popular one in the community is unscientific. Sorry about the
confusion. If anything, I think the ones who do not buy the hypothisis are
thought as unscientific because we go against the norm of the community. I
guess that makes me understand why that would tick you off.

Thanks from me too. We all need to take that big breath before we hit
"send" sometimes.
