Looking at your web pages, I find it incomprehensible that anyone
could really believe that crap.  It strikes me more as a con game
to get people who don't know any better to buy the crap.

Looking at your web page, it is completely obvious that you are
totally ignorant of anything in the realm of neuroscience.  You
make up for that remarkable ignorance by making it up.
