Dear Jason and Alan,

Thank you both for the time and effort that you have put into responding
to my articles.

Jason, you are right, I have been unfair - I never meant to infer that
Dr. Ames is dishonest - I have nothing but respect for 99% of the scientist
that are out there.  The best people I know are scientifically trained.
Someone once said that the no.1 quality of humans that correlates the best
to all that is good about humankind is intelligence - and scientists as a
group contain the largest portion of this quality. I think that scientists
are such good people that they don't understand how bad people think.  
That's why the bad people usually win.

It is not the scientists that I have disrespect for - it is the people who
use the knowledge that great men have dedicated their lives for - and use 
this knowledge to justify the unleashing of toxic substances upon the earth 
- even though this knowledge is still open to interpretation.

It is obvious that I find myself in a group of the type of people that
I have always admired - scientifically trained people - who look at facts, 
and not at personalities.

I have been around people who are not like you - and it will take me some 
time to adjust to decent human beings.

I think I can contribute to discussions in this group - but I will say this 
- I have traveled a different road than most of you - and don't expect me to
rubber stamp the status quo.

If you are interested in a different point of view - then I'm your man - if 
not - then what's the purpose?
And as far as my qualifications - I have accomplished a few things in my
life that I am proud of - and I paid my own way.

Alan, that was a great article - you perfectly mirrored my thoughts on the
subject of scientific knowledge - the more I know, the more I am convinced
I know nothing at all (I'm sure you both would agree with me)

Thanks, again
