I get where Hazel is coming from, it's just a general comment about the how this argument looks like it will take the pleasant and calm atmosphere away from this thread.
Might be worth moving it to the science thread? I might be failing to think of a more appropriate place though.
And I wasn't the one who brought up the word "war" .... it was Hazel, who in fact was worried that it would turn into "another war" ....
I know you weren't. I'm just saying that it's a discussion, not a war.
Can we please keep it as a sane, sensible discussion then?
I'm happy for it to be moved. I just didn't appreciate being accused of "academic intellectualising" simply because I don't believe in things that are baseless and run contrary to available evidence.
James, I wasn't getting at you personally, and I apologise if you felt that. It was a somewhat flippant remark made on what should be a light-hearted thread, and I was just having a bit of a dig at academics in general.
