He has his own personal views of physics and mathematics, just like you do; why is it o.k for you to disagree with the standard theories, but not o.k., for wormley to do so?

I'm willing to bet good money that you just made this up, and you have no data to support this claim--no surprise, as most of your statements fall in the category of "strong opinion", and have nothing solid to support them.

Why? Why not 60-40 , or 80-20?

Sure; I agree, if we can vote to decrease _YOUR_ spam posts on physics , anthropology and garbage math topics here in sci.math. Deal?

You do the same, only you do many-liners of garbage.

Why are you posting here on SCI.MATH on issues that only concern SCI.PHYSICS? Do sci.physics posts belong in sci.math?

As usual, you come off as a disingenuous , self-serving hypocrite.
