I really think you would have been well advised not to reproduce the crackpot replies to the original vid.
GHMB has enough crackpots with far too short attention spans already.
It will confuse your message to many.

Because I am asking for opinion; crackpots, and non crackpots, and orthodoxy, all alike and with value to the discussion

To me the first image was absolute confirmation (or at least serious support) of my particular , seriously deeply considered , view or position on the highly controversial and to many "Plain BS" suggested in the OP of thread.

Thank you. I was aware the doco he talks about in more detail did not concur with the OP position on geopolymer or artificial stone. I posted because it is interesting even if the opinion did not agree necessarily.

I enjoyed that follow up one as well. Thank you for posting.

Aleksejev , discounts artificial (early part of vid) seemingly because of working diorite and andesite NOT JUST limestone. However progress has been made with igneous rock too. (he calls it something else - "extruded"?)

I admire the passion. However "Jedi light sabre" FFS! all they needed was a professional geologist in the troop and many mistakes & near worthless/futile conjecture could have been avoided. (OP video had Professional Geologist input).

Lots to discuss there if anyone if up to it.?

I get it. (your point of view, I think) ;-)
I don't care about any of the potential ridicule or abuse here.
It is the ONLY thing/solution that makes sense, outside of Hollywood and comic books!

IT DOES EXPLAIN away much of 'the mystery' , very WELL!

I had already posted that vid here too.
Aleksejev and team just cannot see the issue, and obvious signs, they for some reason have closed their mind completely to it.

Of course AGREED. Despite my own convictions I am trying not to be dogmatic or insistent but rather be open to all suggestion and comment. Just offer another information trail for individual assessment.

Thanks so much for the contribution.


(Leave out the you-tube comments next time. Most often are such are even more ridiculous and useless than some , seemingly prepped with psychedelic drugs comments here on GHMB mysteries!!!

Cheers

PS Any decision on the 2019 CrackpototYear award yet? The late comers surely didn't do enough. I have put my wager on that sexual organs 'Bali to Bainsdale' bloke- he surely has to win eventually- just for persistent stupidity?
