Rakesh, I do not have time to waste with this sort of nonsense. How can I say
something with which i patently disagree with? The games I mentioned is simple.
To show to you, Fred, and many others on this list, that your arguments are
absurd I have no other recourse than to accept many of your implausible
assumptions and interpretations, particularly the starting points of your
arguments, and then logically show that they lead to absurdity. Then you guys
turn around and say 'see Ajit has accepted our basic starting points etc.' And
I'm now tired of this sort of game, which is basically a waste of time for me.
I have my research work to do. I have tried my best to let many of you on this
list to know the serious weaknesses in your arguments, so that you can improve
upon the quality of your work. If you are not convinced then well, it's too bad
for everybody concerned.
Cheers, ajit sinha
