that’s why reputable scientific works are peer reviewed part of which looks at observational bias and repeatability of results. Proper science begins with a question and a testable hypothesis not with and end result.
Works well when you choose those who are the reviewers. Covid reviews are a good example, just follow the money trail.

you don’t choose the reviewers. people really don’t understand how actual science works. I expect scientists don’t know how a diesel works but the they don’t come up with diesel engine conspiracy theories

I know nothing about knapping flints, but I cut, shape and smooth stone to engrave with a laser.
I can assure you, stone absorbs water, and the cutting properties, especially when using a chisel or a high speed grinder, are totally different than when dry.
And it is a really bad idea to try and laser engrave stone that you are not 100% positive has drained out.
if the stone you’re cutting with a laser is damp does it split flakes off the surface when the laser hits?

I wouldn't bet my life on it. The actual scientist might not have much input as to who reviews the theory, but influences connected to the theory are a different story, like I said follow the money trails.

'Is that a Damascus barrel? Don't shoot it, it will blow up! ' (at a Christmas turkey shoot, the fellow left the line after the first bird. So shaken up by the bp smoke and fire that he couldn't continue. ) The gun didn't blow up that day or any other since.

One of my old friends back in the 80's with the Bay Area Mountain Men was a feller named "Dutch". He had an old, original Damascus barreled (I think 12 Gauge) side by each with a blond stock that I absolutely LOVED. It was in great shape, too. We'd shoot some skeet sometimes during the monthly club shoots, and I hit almost every one I shot at with that gun. I tried soooo hard to talk him out of it... I failed. I still miss that gun. Him, too. He was a nice feller.

You’re off base there. Have you ever ran a forum? You’ll see just what knuckleheads are.

And, the card is to keep scumbags from cheating others by fake selling guns. Maybe it’s not perfect, but it helps.

Again, have YOU ran a forum this big? You owe them an apology.
I can somewhat agree. I have however seen several harless threads that MANY were enjying be closed down for NO CAUSE ther thqan "personal choice". Dang I miss Zonie. He closed em if they got rowdy, folks began name calling etc. He always gave ya a warning though.

Was at a public range years ago. At the time, I only owned a percussion TC Renegade. Was shooting a target at 100 yards. Some guy walks up and asks which target was mine. I say "that one there at 100". His response, "oh, I didn't know them things could shoot that far". I just shook my head and ignored the clod after that. Numbnut!

Why didn’t you educate him instead of ignoring him?

So one or some of you made a complaint to the Moderators here on what they considered to be an "offensive" post.
I had no idea this forum encourages the Woke percentage.
Note to Coinneach, make no comment on anything here anymore.
What does the Woke percentage mean ?
