Now you sound like a UFOlogist with the "can you prove it
_didn't_ happen." Well, that's not the way science works. It's not up
to us to provide evidence that it's impossible. It's up to the
hypothesis's supporters to provide evidence that it _happened_.

If you keep _acting_ like pseudo-scientists (and this "prove it's
impossible tactic is just that), then you can't be surpised when
you're _treated_ like one.
