Dear Ron

you said "Now, I will go back to my investors and collaborators and colleagues and tell them it's decided.

600 field tests and over a hundred testimonials are worthless.... According to some faceless nameless entity on a forum, we must now accept our investment totally wasted. All the reports are not worth the time it took to record them.

I guess I should hang my head in shame....

Two examples come to mind from your sarcastic comment.........
1. 1610, Galileo published his Sidereus Nuncius (Starry Messenger), describing the surprising observations that he had made with the new telescope. These and other discoveries exposed major difficulties with the scientific understanding of the heavens that had been held since antiquity, and raised new interest in radical teachings such as the heliocentric theory of Copernicus (published in De revolutionibus orbium coelestium in 1543). THe result was Galileo was looked up. Now don't think I am comparing you to Galileo. No, you are more like the Pope. Just because YOUR circle of friends agree with you does not make you right or replace true scientific testing.

2. In my own industry, Long-Term Care, the vast majority of the industry is completely off base on some core 'facts' and beliefs. I have reseached the true source of these errors and even written a book on the topic. I have been battling this for 10 yrs. Unlike you, instead of rushing uot and snagging investors who can 'prove me right', I wrote a book that lists each myth, the documented sources of the myth, and the documented truths and facts. There are no footnotes or index. Each source is listed right there in the text. I used these facts to convince MetLife to finally change a nationally distributed ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO LTC that had be WRONG for 9 years(and was reviewed for content every 2 yrs.
If you'd like, I'd be glad to send it to you (19.95 plus postage) so you can see how to actually, proffesionally, and in a business like manner validate and prove your point.
