Then you have 2 choices, either accept the facts and deal with them (my
or become like some medieval scholastic who dismisses things not on the
basis of
evidence but of what s/he would rather believe. Hell with that, say I. You

would it? and if it did, would that somehow change the facts, as opposed to
your hopes and dreams?

I don't agree at all, but I see now why it is you are unprepared to look the
facts in the face.
