Formulating new ideas and theories, hypothesis, are maybe the most
respectful and difficult of operations. Nevertheless , hypothesis are
just that, however intriquing , until tested ,proving their validity.
If you find this position being a ridicule , then it seems you do not
have much confidence in your "new" ideas. That could be a shame,
certainly if your work has substance and could benefit mankind.
