You imply that I must accept all new claims without question. That would be as irrational as rejecting all of them out of hand. You imply that I am not capable of evaluating claims. If I can read McKubre and conclude that he is right, I can read the Penon report and conclude that Rossi is wrong. The suggestion that a person who uses ordinary judgment and evaluates claim is somehow "ironic" is a new definition of irony. Actually, I cannot imagine how a technically competent person could read the Penon report and *not* conclude that Rossi was wrong. Axil Axil and other Rossi supporters have finessed this problem by refusing to read the report. Robert Park used the same technique to reject all cold fusion results -- he refused to look at them. That's ironic! - Jed
