Read it. Thanks for the share. Gonna follow you after I figure out how that’s done on this platform. And yeah. I kind of *touched* on a few points you did, but the general thrust of my argument was entirely different. The one thing he seems super hung up about is actually something a friend of mind pointed out on Facebook. You’ll note I didn’t even bother to engage with that guy. Anyone who calls me “Ms.,” misspells my name, and then tries to gaslight and negg me generally gets sent to the trash heap with the rest of the scum. I see from your exchange here, his MO is the condescending “let me help you, you poor stupid woman,” line. You must have the patience of a saint.

But yes, this clears up a few question marks I had. For instance, I was wondering why you highlighted the particular line you did, but contextually it makes sense.

Also, it’s not terribly difficult to imagine that two people might come to the same information based on similar evidence. I mean …. that’s basically the underpinning of science … last I, you know …. wrote 400 pages on it.

Anyways, glad I met you even if it had to be through the posturing of a weird and foolish jerk.
