    As my 300 post I say...stay tuned...the COWBOY is coming. Let me say, it is hard having the $1000 cash hanging around, knowing some lucky soul will appreciate it so. Plus, there is more...and how to convey that to the Treaure Hunter has been the biggest problem. One most know you will be up against the skeptics when you throw any idea out there. If you dont, better start over. ("starting overrrrr...OVER, starting overrrrr...OVER).

    And it seems that you a misconception about what it means to be a dreamer as well. It isn't that dreamers can't be convinced of things that may be true, or that they are stuck in their "dream-world", but they are willing to test what others believe to be outside the realm of what is then considered normal.

    The world was once thought to be flat. It took someone who could dream up the possibility of something that goes against the norm, in this case thinking the world may be round, to prove otherwise. A skeptic may have made the arguement that there were no proof of a round earth, and up to that point science supported the fact that the Earth was indeed flat.

    I believe in science more than anything. It is the job of a scientist to question everything, because if they don't the field will never move forward.

    A revolutionaty scientist isn't the one who deals with the know truth, but who deals with that which is beyond it. I do enjoy quotes, so here is a good one on this topic.

    "All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed, Second it is violently opposed, Third it is accepted as being self-evident." Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher

    It is the skeptics who refuse to believe that which goes against the grain of the truth they are familiar with. It takes a dreamer to look down those other paths.

    It was Aristotle, one of history's greatest skeptics, that gave proof the earth was spherical. Meanwhile, the dreamers then, and for centruries after continued to have nightmares about falling off the ends of a flat earth.

    You still do not understand skepticism. I urge you to go off and research this. If you truly do believe in science, open your mind, and try to stretch beyond the common notion of 'being skeptical' and find out what I am talking about. You may find you are more a skeptic at heart than you think.

    Here are some links that may help:

    I'm clever enough to be unhappy.

    Yep, I do. Funny, the real Rusty Shackleford was on TV as I was writing my last post. Hmmmm. I know what he'd say too.

    Cheers, Domino
