I spend a LOT of time where I think it will count most.

What you do is sit at your PC and google.

You have no formal education or qualifications in any of the diverse subjects that you feel capable of pontificating on. You never leave your armchair to phyically look at the stuff you have crazy ideas about. You don't do even basic desk research - you don't know what it is, you do not have access to it and wouldn't understand it anyway.

You think that your uninformed, plucked out of thin air, unevidenced and untested mad schemes are as valid as those of real scientists - those who have spent their academic lives studying an aspect of a particular rock formation, gene or animal species and had their work exposed to the criticism of their peers.

Their work is built on hundreds of years of earlier scientists' efforts. Hundreds of thousands of real scientists spending years on obscure specialisms - all of their efforts having to fit and add to the giant jigsaw called a theory. Most are lucky to find a single piece.

And there you sit in your hermetically sealed little religious bubble, blissfully ignorant of real research, making stuff up from nothing, thinking that the stuff you thought of in the last ten minutes is just as valid as the empirically tested, reference based, peer reviewed real science that is actually a life's work. It's an insult to ignorance, it needs another word.

You honestly do not have a fucking clue.
