You have a hobby horse. Every post is about the same point - your fanboyism for this idée fixe. And rest assured, the occasional discussion about cosmology would not be unappreciated, but with you, it's all the time.
You start threads just to go on and on about the same things. Frankly, I don't know why you settled on this board, perhaps, because CZ has been kind enough not to boot you, but you don't bring anything of value to the table. You've shot your wad, and you don't see it.
As for the bonafides of the board, no one is checking degrees, reading lists, or IQ test results at the door, but there are more than adequate numbers of your interlocutors who are far more knowledgeable than you imagine.
I recently read a very old thread on a forum of high level learners of a specific, difficult foreign language. A non-speaker of that language who styles himself to be an internet polyglot swooped in to inform them they were learning it all wrong, and that he would learn said language in an absurdly short period of time.
The locals to the board encouraged his enthusiasm but explained to him that his Pollyanna view was really misguided, if he thought he would be fluent in his absurdly short goal time. 16 pages of posts followed in which he called out their stupidity, their shortsightedness, their blindness, their ignorance, their lack of appreciation, and so forth.
The thing is, at the end of the short period, despite being in-country and having the advantage of native speakers at his fingertips, he was awful: bad accent, awkward prosody, poor vocabulary - just bad everything. The forum was right - he wasn't fluent - BUT he left declaring himself victorious.
You come across the same way. You appear to think you're the only one who's right, and clearly, you have an exceedingly low opinion of everyone else, which makes it more baffling that you continue to deign to grace us with your presence. Unless, one might infer, you're not welcome elsewhere.
