I think you are barking up the wrong tree. I'm proud of my accomplishements as a husband, as a father and as a businessman. Pride however can be a dangerous thing, as can appeal to authority arguments. I've not DODGED anything. In fact I've put my work out on the web for all the world to see and critique. Others here presumably have the qualifications to poke holes in my observations and interpretations, but they have NOT done so. In fact, none of them can really adequately explain ANYTHING that takes place below the observable photosphere. I can. Now if they cannot explain what causes sunspots, and 11 year cycles and solar moss activity and siesmic activity on the sun, and I can, then the onus of responsibilty is on THEM to BETTER explain the phenomenon I have observed. So far that's NOT happened.
You can choose to believe what you like. I choose to believe in the laws of physics and direct observation. Degrees and individuals are irrelevant.
