    You just can't help sounding like a condescending twat, can you?

    Here is something you should practice: "Sorry, I was wrong". Cut and paste if necessary. When you have it worked out, perhaps you could give Gunner some lessons.

    Rincewind is a vindictive little underachiever, with petty hatred for those with strong ideological differences.

    The only ideological difference we have is that I think, you don't.

    That's not an ideological difference

    I have a science doctorate and master title (both earned the proper way, something you don't understand), yet a nonentity like you tells me I don't think

    It is not important what titles you collect in your life Jono, it is what you do with them. There are plenty of PhDs who I wouldn't call particularly smart. You fall well within that camp. In fact after getting your PhD you seem to have abandoned science and taken up the anti-thinking discipline of religious indoctrination. You are a disgrace to any scientific training you might have received and certainly not worthy of the title of "doctor", as you don't teach, you misinform.

    Regarding the master title. Being good at chess also doesn't mean you can think. All it means is that you are good at playing a game. Go you!

    I disagree with this statement. Titles and qualifications do mean something in and of themselves. They are milestones and should be celebrated.

    I agree there are milestones but the problem happens when they become an goal in and of themselves.

    From a lot of people a Doctor of Philosophy is the starting point for a career in academia. Most academics I know don't worry too much about being called doctor and for most the PhD is not the crowning achievement of their life. People who get a PhD just to collect the prenominal and once they have done so then leave academia never to do anything again except insist they they be referred to a Dr Whatever are the problem. That is just self-aggrandisement.

    So in summary, sure getting a PhD is worth celebrating, but it is what you do with it that really matters.

    Not that a nonentity like you would be in a position to judge.

    You haven't a clue. My articles have plenty of operational science in them (not that you would understand it); one researcher complimented my "lucid and accurate" article about his theory of vibrational spectroscopic mechanism for smell. You're just whinging because my articles disagree with your atheistic religion about origins (when you whinge about Dawkins' atheistic indoctrination I might take you seriously). You would also have whinged about Sir Isaac Newton, usually regarded as the greatest scientist ever, because he wrote more to defend the Bible than he wrote on science.

    Better than being good for nothing, like you!

    How about we keep discussion of "vibrational specroscopic mechanism for smell" away from this thread?

    Generally speaking, any discussion of applied scientific exploits (e.g. value of one's Ph.D etc.) should be carried out by specialists in the respective field of study. a few weeks ago i refused to act as an examiner for somebody's minor Thesis on the basis of having insufficient knowledge of the subject matter. The last thing i want to do on this board is to ingage into discussion of one's contribution to the body of knowledge in his field of research!

    I think Jono must be greatly entertained by non-experts trying to question validity of his research .

    It's been so long since you have been near any real science that you wouldn't even know it if you fell over it. If your work is up to scratch then publish in peer reviewed scientific journals. If not..

    I don't need to be Einstein to know that if someone isn't publishing in peer reviewed journals* then it isn't worth diddly. After saying that, have a look at some of Jono's "research" most of which is outside of HIS field of expertise and judge for yourself. It isn't difficult to see the flaws in his method and conclusions.
