* * * * NOTE FROM THE MODERATORS' COMMUNITY * * * * The topic of this thread invites posts that would ordinarily go under Science Fiction. Some of them are probably sarcastic; I wouldn't know since apparently I lack the enzyme to digest sarcasm and it gets me in trouble. As a moderator I would be reluctant to ban anybody for what they say here. However, infractions are always possible. Dwayne: You are hereby notified that regardless of the topic of this post, Astronomy, Exobiology and Cosmology is nonetheless one of our science subforums, and the scientific method is to be respected at all times. Please comport yourself like a scientist. Present substantiation for your assertions. If your peers review your work (which is exactly what is happening here) and have questions, then you are required to satisfy your peer reviewers before you are allowed to move forward. If you don't like the admittedly imperfect peer review process practiced on SciForums, feel free to go socialize with scientists of a more scholarly nature and submit your hypotheses to them for review. Everyone else: STOP THE BLOODY FLAMING! What is it about cosmology that causes this subforum to erupt in flame wars more frequently than the Middle East? The Religion subforum is more peaceful than this one! This is SCIENCE. Please bahave like SCIENTISTS. A lot of impressionable young people come to SciForums looking for answers to their questions, or just because they like science. Is this kind of crap that you all want them to find here? We're trying to clean up SciForums so that it presents itself as a gathering place for scientists, future scientists and people who just want to talk about science. You guys make it look like the Jerry Springer show!
