I love this completely random comment that has absolutely nothing to do with the discussion at hand.
You must have missed what it pertained to. There are several topics going on at once here.
But it's the height of ignorance to think that every idea put out by a lay person has merit.
Heck, I'm just a sci-fi fan, not a physicist and even I've heard that this electric sky book is junk science.
But haven't you seen Good Will Hunting
Sorry for the joke, but thinking that only someone who has a Ph.D. is smart enough to understand something sure excludes anyone who couldn't afford to go to college or someone that has a hearing or vision disorder that interferes with learning in a classroom setting. It doesn't make someone dumb if they don't have a Ph.D. And it doesn't make someone perfect if they do.
