It has been brought to my attention that in the last paragraph above it
sounds like I am criticizing Dr. Callahan and his theories. Nothing could
be further from the truth. I have the greatest respect for Dr. Callahan
and his theories.
Since this written medium does not convey tone of voice and other
non-verbal elements of communication it is much easier to make statements
with ambiguous meaning.
What I intended to imply is that there are connections between Dr.
Callahan's paramagnetic soil observations/theories and the ORMUS
observations/theories which tend to close up some of the gaps in each.
