Re discussing facts, theories, and hypotheses, is anyone up to speed on the Fair Use doctrine (I think that's what it's called). I ask because, like most people at universities, pharmaceutical companies, and the like, I have access to a vast electronic collection of scientific publications. Seems to me that these endless discussion threads with FtK, VMartin, etc. could be substantially improved (and possibly shortened) if their bald-faced assertions were countered by the regular posting of at least the abstract of a relevant, peer-reviewed, article.
While I know most of us have to make a living, I think even one posting per day would deliver a powerful message: The Fundgelicals assert there's a controversy in the scientific community; the rationalists counter with a mainstream, peer-reviewed, article; the Fungies say, "My mind's made up, don't confuse me with the facts."
