: S: : If I didn't have the time to explain the theory of relativity to you, would that disqualify it?

: D: It wouldn't prove or disprove it. But at some point if you wish to maintain a theory you must defend it--with something more than unsupported claims.

: Qx: Really? It can be called "just a theory" by some but it still gets attacked. I think it stands well on it's own without my having to rush to it's defense.

Don: You claim that it is correct, yet you refuse to back this claim up with reasoned argument. At some point an observer is bound to conclude that this is because you *don't have* a reasoned argument.
