And so far, no takers. Their silence speaks volumes. Actually, there is
plenty of precedent for scientific theories being surpressed and later
turning out to be true. One representative example (uh, can we say it is a

That's one of the many examples of religious revisionists trying to rewrite
science to support their religious beliefs. I'm sure glad that doesn't
happen in today's modern world...
