I said I have no such urge. You say "of course I can't be holier than the pope, that is the point."
The point SEEMS to be that you can't track your own discussion.
The only "holier than the pope"-ishness around here is tween your ears.
How this is "trollish" on MY part excapes me.
I implied you are trying to be "Holier than the Pope" (HTTP) not holy, which are obviously not the same thing.
HTTP in this context means being OVERLY righteous. And yes, too much of anything is bad enough.
You are demanding of people to treat a non-scientific issue with scientific rigor, just to show them
how unrighteous they are in contrast to you, THE RIGHTEOUS.
I recon that is your hypertrophied urge of righteousness, in other words urge to be HTTP.
You never said you "don't have such urge", you said:
"no, that doesn't make me "holier than the Pope", just righteous enough!",
which statement shows that
a) You don't get the meaning of HTTP or my whole point
b) You do have an urge to be [overly] righteous
Your "enough" is too much IMHO. You twist other people's words and break certain phrases out of their context,
then make claims over, with, again the sole purpose of appearing more righteous than others,
which I perceive as kind of trolling. You might like the word "demagogue" more. Have it then.
Rossi is a liar, since he's been caught lying / twisting the truth many times in the past. He was even convicted for it.
Does he lie about a particular LENR implementation? I don't know, it does not matter.
The man behaves like a liar, talks like a liar and looks like a liar while talking like one.
He is a liar. Maybe it is just a symptom of an illness or maybe he is being forced into this.
Regardless of the reasons why, he is.
Even if the E-Cat is proven to work one day, that would still not unmake Rossi a liar.
You can have a "last argument" in this exchange. I am sure you will, but I don't really care.
