To clarify, my brain is just fine (except the bipolar disorder, of course), but it doesn't turn in the same directions as some of the others.  I don't get the math, quite a lot of the time, and I'm certainly nowhere near as educated in the engineering.  I can talk about the history, politics, and psychology fairly easy, and I get most of the geology.

I have the same issues with the maths. I understand much of the mechanics, some of the physics (when they are explained by people that DO understand the math). I am fortunate that I do not suffer from Bi-Polar Disorder, but I do suffer from ADHD that causes my mind to go down rabbit holes when I am researching things.

On a related note, I see Jarrah White is most upset that Amazon is offering Ralph's book for sale, thus depriving him of gullible folks' cash. 


I also note with dismay that JW has apparently managed to complete his astrophysics course. Maybe his tutors just got so fed up with him that they let him pass?

Aw, diddums. I see he claims that his efforts in distributing Rene's guff is a "labour of love". Not for profit at all, absolutely no way, no Siree....

Sounds a bit like Derek Willis, no?

Absolutely.
As i said earlier in this thread, 99 out of a hundred hoax believers are ignorant of facts. The last 1% are chasing down a dollar. Rene was one of those and The Blunder from Down Under is another (though at 12K subscribers his pickings from YouTube will be scant).
