The citation will appear at the end of the series.

 >something which has an entirely different meaning.

First, I changed absolutely nothing. "front line" are his exact
words. By saying that I have deliberately changed his words,
then you are saying you know where the direct quote orignates,
which you obviously don't. Therefore, you don't know what you
are talking about.

 >After you changed Schaeffer's words into your own, you then

 >personal opinion", and, "doesn't engage in actual science."

Since you seem to know where the exact quotes originate, which
you obviously don't, you again are in error and opining. The
quote is direct and accurate. BTW, CSICOP is not a scientific
organization and certainly does not engage in actual science. It
never has or likely ever to do so.

 >I am curious as to what was going through your mind when you did this?

Fair enough. Probably the same thing that goes through your mind
when you post really insipid replies or posts whereby you
haven't a clue as to what you are talking about.
