It's called peer review Bob -- pointing out serious shortcomings
in methodology and conclusions. If Moore had sent his work off
to some scientific journal, he would have faced the exact same
criticisms from the reviewers. "Dear Dr. Moore. We are returning
your paper. Interesting theory, but your work is primarily
assumptions with no data to back them up."

Moore's model of the Flight 4 Mogul trajectory has been
hyperinflated into some sort of unquestionable scientific proof
by the Roswell debunking camp that Flight 4 explains the Roswell
crash. It is nothing of the kind.

Nice job of begging the question Bob. Assume as correct the very
subject that is being disputed.

It would be like saying, "The problem with Mogul is that no
balloon train debris was found on the Foster Ranch. Mack Brazel
found a flying saucer."
