I =AGREE=, and not that, thus far, having received
ample opportunity to do so, you've not pointed to
anything that I've discussed as 'being in error'.

So, where does that leave you with respect to your
own 'flowery' statements, above?

All you've done, thus far, is the sort of weak-
kneed ad hominem stuff that's the Hallmark
of Belligerent-Ignorance.

I Invite you to try to find Error in anything that
I've posted.

For that matter, show how anything I've posted
is 'disruptive' [without Genuine Purpose and
Utility with respect to Neuroscience].
