I knew perfectly well what you were doing but decided not to play along. You remind me of this Randi guy and his phoney $1 million offer which he doesn't intend to pay out. Did anyone see him on CNN the other day with Rosemary Altea? He went on trying to discredit her, and from all accounts he did a fabulous job of discrediting himself.
The skeptic always ends up discrediting himself. Time and time again he asks for proof of this and proof of that and when he is given proofs by the bucket, he always manages to say "sorry, but your proof is unacceptable to me. Try again" That is what you have done in this group, and that is what all you skeptics do. What a crock. If you think that is a character attack, that only makes you all the more cynical.
The best defense against a cynic (or skeptic) is to call his bluff.
