Uh, Tom, wake up. Eric's tactics have been blatantly apparent since
about the third post in this thread (what about 2 or 3 months back).
He's particularly good at the mumbo jumbo when he's unable to
substantiate his opinion, or logically decompose a different opinion.
Eric beleives that science and scientific methodologies are stricitly
of non-native ameircan origin and as such are not to be trusted, thus
logic, epidemiological studies, molecular genetics, immunology all
must be filtered to that which is acceptably non-european to be
trustable, alas if you can do this as he does you are a scolar of
Eric's level, elsewise, well we get flameus-contortious. Leave it be
and let the thread die a peaceful death.
