Astronomy gets punk'd

The interesting thing about crackpots is that they're consistent in their whackiness.

instapunk, having disposed of evolution, here explains why we need to worry about astronomy - I have to confess I don't quite get the jump from Deep Impact to cosmology - but then I am part of the problem
Strangely, the dispute between "traditional" cosmologists and the "electric universe" proponents does mirror the debate between evolutionsts and creationsts; just not in the way instapunk seems to think.

BTW both UVES and XMM Newton detected water/OH from C/Tempel-1 - with flux increasing post-impact

cf see here and here

Methinks you need to do more research on United States copyright law. So ign'ant.

Methinks you are not instaprude's source of legal advice...
They pulled the original real fast, for a reason.
I hadn't even mentioned a lawyer yet.

He probably pulled it to avoid embarrassing your homely brat.

Oh bravely said Marty.

Now go back to crawl among the cockroaches, you might find one dumb enough to outwit there.

What is even funnier is that your very next comment complains about me making personal attacks...
