All right, already. What seems to be overlooked by some of this list's
correspondents is that I've been a member of the SVP for some 22 years now,
and a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for
well over a decade; and that I have a couple of science degrees and a
dissertation under my belt. So I do indeed have, and have had for most of my
life, some grasp of the scientific method and what constitutes a scientific
hypothesis, both in historical sciences and in the "hard" sciences. Take that
as a given; there is no need for invidious comparisons with creationists or
sarcasm in responses to posts of mine in which I feel like shaking the tree a
little--a tree that every so often needs some shaking, I might add. I don't
mind having my tree shaken in return, but I think we have reached the point
of diminishing returns on all sides.
