X-Ftn-To: George Jiri Opletal Well, nice to know that you realize your above "proof" doesn't work. Now, are you going to provide him with one that does? If not, why not? Again, I refer you to the Appendix of Sagan's _Cosmos_ which does, indeed, contain a logical proof that 1 1 2. Every time. You remain debunked. Hec

X-Ftn-To: Day Brown Perhaps, Dayglo, it is merely that you have not given sufficient evidence to make the comparison _believable_. For myself, you sound like one of those "Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy" kooks. Perhaps you should _demonstrate_ that the idea is a good one, not merely claim such. And having a string of "kooky" ideas (something you and Veli

There's a state park on the Paluxy River, where the dino tracks are found which some idiot creationist decided were "man-tracks." Also home of the Creation Evidences Museum, which should be worth a hoot. Robert E. Howard's hometown is also nearby. I have a feeling Spring Break probably is in

X-Ftn-To: George Jiri Opletal Time dilation effects do _not_ "reduce trip times." Time is simply relative. A trip at near-C doesn't take any less time than it takes. There are merely different reference points between those on the trip, and those waiting at the destination. You're once again demonstrating a total lack of a grasp on physics. Hec
