	If that is the best theory you can advance, forgive me if I
 prefer to stick to one with some scientific backing, and which tends
 to actually explain the empirically observed data. The pattern of
 behaviour, and the pattern of inclusion is not random, so your theory
 is a very poor fit.

	When you have something that fits the observed data better, a
 model that can actually explain some of the patterns I have observed,
 I would be more willing to listen to you.

	At this point, your views go in the same bin as those people
 claiming that the world is flat and the center of the universe, with
 stars just holes in the roof.

He who has a shady past knows that nice guys finish last.
