I will go further than that by saying: Science does not care who has the best sounding “definition”, what most matters to science is which is the most useful theoretical “model” to use

giggles, on what basis do scientists measure "most useful"?  

is anyone using your model to explain anything?

ANYTHING?

if not, do you concede that it is not useful at all?

asking this again since Gary obviously answered a different question.

Gary, on what basis do scientists measure the "usefulness" of a model?

Does your model make any predictions which you could test experimentally?
