Consider yourself pardoned. Do you have any knowledge or understanding of the

This statement indicates your lack of knowledge on this subject.
But to answer your general point: For every example you mentioned, there are 1000
crackpot theories proposed. You can choose to ignore them until they go away, or,
if you have a spare 5 minutes and happen to be struck by the inappropriate
attitude of the proposer, you can refute their claims.

So you were thrown out of science because you are too 'creative'? I am sorry you
are so bitter about it.

Your crude attempt at censorship is noted and summarily rejected.

This is either
1) evidence that you don't know what 'repectfully' means.
2) an unsuccessful attempt at humor.
