I'm sure you can all decide to get this thread off sci.anthropology on
your own volition, Bruce, instead of wasting bandwidth huffing over
our deciding to treat your beliefs as mere grist to the mill.

For the record, there is nothing unscientific as you are well aware
with our presenting preliminary field evidence to our own colleagues
here on our own conference revealing the existence of a most peculiar
religious sect, identified by their esoteric babble, cricked necks,
and the white showing permanently around the lower part of their

Making something passing reminiscent of ducks making a loud "quark!
quark! quark!" noise in greeting and during courtship display, and a
muttering of "nonzero neutrino redshift photon mass! nonzero neutrino
photon mass in the lower upper bound!" among the far more handsomely
fledged drakes bobbing their heads enthusiasticly in reply.

Over there among the barbaric tribes of Acirema and Ynamreg . . .

He who refuses to qualify data is doomed to rant.
