See there you go again with your low-brow evaluations of other
people. As though you sit on some high throne of superiority or
something.

If I were lacking in what a scientific hypothesis is I wouldn't
have passed the full body of science courses I did in school and
had gotten exempt from final exams.

I wouldn't have been able to illustrate hundreds of news stories
written by top science journalists when I worked at the Gannett
News Service. I wouldn't have been able to jaw it up with some
of the leading scientists who lived and worked with me growing
up.

Matter of fact, if I had a lacking, as you so impolitely implied
in scientific theory, how did I beat out over a thousand writers
last week to write exclusive articles for one of the world's top
mathematicians? He chose me for his exclusive and advanced
courses in everything from algebra to physics to advanced
statistics?

How could I have just created and illustrated a groundbreaking
childrens book for the world's foremost stem cell advocacy group
and passed muster with biologists around the world?

Oh and don't forget all those science fairs I won growing up
starting at age six.

But Jerome Clark says I have a lack in grasping scientific
theory.

That's about as much credibility if it were coming from a
homeless Muppet from the lower east side of Sesame Street.

I don't have to go into insults, you do more damage to yourself
than any of us.
