But if a site does not agree with mainstream astrophysics, you might still call them crackpot.
Hey, no need to get personal.


The point is, most people have no idea how tenuous astronomical models are, yet they are always presented as hard fact.
Now, that's simply not true. Science never claims to be the absolute revealed truth. The whole process of science is built around testing and questioning hypotheses -- basing conclusions on the evidence, and changing theories to fit new evidence. Of course there's always room for doubt and re-evaluation in light of new evidence. But what you're doing is ignoring hard evidence we already have that proves there are water and other volatiles on comets.
