Poor Tom, we are concerned for your mental health.  Sadly, we can't help you
there but let me at accept some advice that will contribute to a sea change in
your posts - meaning.

Balance.  Offering a tome in reponse to every brief epistle will deter most
readers. This is esp. true if done in detail (i.e. separately commenting on
each sentence) as you have here.

Logic.  Please also reread the post to which you last responded.  Ad hominem
(note your "jackass" and"butthead") is not a logical form of argument.  I
realize that logic is not your strength and have seen none to this point.
Perhaps you could find a ref text to help (search "logic" at Amazon.com).

Pop Psychology.  I fear you watch too much Oprah, Tom.  Really, most folks in
real life don't accept as valid or useful the analysis of an educated, serial
poster on the net.

Microbiology. Suggest the many years of hard work and study needed to become
edcuated and proficient in this discipline will make it difficult for you to
even understand the most basic concepts. Whereas I hate to discourage an
apparently unemployed person with your energy and free time, it is hard work
hard and will expose your flawed beliefs to real microbiologists (such as I)
who will dismiss most of your ideas.

Good luck, Tom, and please remember that we value your posts as wonderful
entertainment.  The thought even occurs that you are a real microbiologist who
is "jerking our chain" with erred science and craziness.  If so, you should
take your show on the road to the next ASM.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy
