re: bois' response to orenstein

John Bois is dreaming if he thinks that any person, whether reviewer or
not, is free from bias.  Unless you are a table or other inanimate object
each person is loaded with biases.  Mr Bois has one of the better developed

What Mr. Bois fails to see is that his opinions while valid as opinions
do not have much scientific evidence to support them momentarily.  Maybe
in future more evidence will prove him correct.  In the meantime, however,
any hypothesis must be testable, in that it can be disproven.  The current
available evidence tends to disprove rather than support his hypothesis.
That being said, his hypothesis remain that - a hypothesis that has not
passed the test.
