I can't account for your expectations. They're obviously not based on direct physical evidence. And you are revealing yourself as being prone to personal attacks when your logic runs out. You clearly are not paying attention to the world around you. You are too invested in conjecture and have fallen gullible to far lower standards of proof than that applied by modern hard science.
In my opinion.

I look forward to any evidence-based dissertation you care to present. Until then, please keep your personal insults to yourself.
I apologize that you missed the respectful salvo here. PhD's aren't handed out like hats, now are they. They are achieved through hard work, perseverance and respect from peers. As a result, I perceive you (obviously) as an intelligent fellow with the aforementioned traits. I therefore found it surprising your arguments (not you) as regards this current topic aren't immediately reflected in them.
Secondly, that I make a personal choice to help guide rather than do all the work for you shouldn't be taken as insulting. I recognize and appreciate you may not see it this way. Nevertheless, my intent to give information or direction is meant to be productive. It is indeed unfortunate you do not see it this way, but I don't feel it my duty after your reciprocation to provide the entire corpus of knowledge I have on the matter, and which has taken many many years to gather. It is an unfair expectation, and one I feel you would gladly endorse.
I am simply asking you to earn your keep, respectfully.
Kind Regards (which I mean and always have),
