Yes, it explains a lot. There's nothing wrong with being self-taught, but declaring one's knowledge to be superior when it's never been tested in an academic or peer-review environment is beyond presumptuous.
There's a world of difference between working one's way through a science curriculum and reading Scientific American. I think a semester in an advanced physics course would provide Dave with some much-needed humility. Maybe I'll dig up an old textbook and let him try his hand at solving some problems.
Oh, wait, I already posed a problem back in March:
Given a 700 nm photon, assuming it came from a black body, what is the probability that the temperature of the black body is between 4139 K and 4141 K?
How you coming on that, Dave?
