I see poor Starmaker, here is vying for ex-communication from the priesthood of "raw science". He shall henceforth be banished from the "circle of trust" and permanently exhiled outside the "circle of trust". Maybe we should give hiim one more chance to have his distinctiveness preserved in our reality collective.
One more chance before he joins the legion of the condemned in my kill-file - lol.
I'm quaking in my boots at the prospect of the Starmaker's "show trials" where I "will be forced to recant" the heresy imposed on me by my own extremely sophisticated, and reliable temperature sensors ( i.e. my own skin ) - lol.
Let's take comfort, with all the heat trapped by the atmosphere, the earth's molten core is probably containing less of it and thereby on average, the earth may actually be cooling - lol.
Unfortunately, the part of the earth we inhabit is definitely heating.
