    I was asking questions because you posted an answer to me in your post #138 mentioning "physical aether waves", in the physics forum. You should not post about "physical aether waves" in the physics forum at all. If you do not want to answer questions about "physical aether waves" in the physics forum, as it is not an appropriate forum to answer those questions, then don't posit "physical aether waves" as a possible answer the question in the OP in the physics forum, as it is not the appropriate forum to posit these concepts.

Your tone and online demeanor are also generally very conducive to civil discussion. I look forward to our future discussions in an appropriate forum, best regards, Forrest
    Yes, I do try not to shy away from logic, don't I?

    I too look forward to our future discussions in an appropriate forum. But you must understand that this situation arose because you posted about "physical aether waves" in an inappropriate forum. You do understand that, don't you?

    This is what I said:

    Yes Speedy, thanks for your comments. Einstein said a number of things concerning an aether, some of which both of us have quoted in this thread, but he did not believe in a moving fluid aether like Lorentz, Maxwell, and many others, or as in my own fluid aether ideas.

    Relative to this thread topic, physical aether waves emanating from physical particles might be one way to explain claims, or the appearance of a single particle being at two places at one time.
    "might be a way to explain" the appearance of a single particle being at two places at one time, or another explanation rather than the explanation of the same particle being at two places at the same time. This was not a proposal, it was a speculative comment. Later when you asked my opinion, I gave it to you with an appropriate disclaimer.

    You should know by now to avoid suggesting, even speculatively, that an aether theory might be an explanation.

    Indeed, he should know better by now, but he can't help injecting his, er, insights into his posts. His "c'mon, I included a disclaimer and everything, so I'm absolved of all responsibility to stick to mainstream science" dodge is tiresome.
