Of course both you and I understood what she was hinting at. Just as I have
multiple times responded to your unfounded allegations and insinuations
about Nancy and Troubled Times, I have stated that such comments were unwise
However, in this pseudo-scientific group where everybody talks about proof
for this and that, I wanted to illustrate the lack of precision, as Nancy
only used the word lesbian. I have not found any of the others words in the

You have no such evidence for any of your unfounded allegations against
Nancy and Troubled Times Inc. Repeating your mantra endlessly does not make
it any more true. Each and every of your clever though-out allegations have
been countered numerous times.
> Let's not forget that Nancy has absolutely NO evidence that her planet
Nor do you have any evidence that it does not exist. Science learns new
things, and new heavenly bodies are discovered all the time. Some are only
detected through the impact on other bodies, as they themselves are
undetectable. (E.g. extra-solar planets & dark nebulae.)

There are people committing suicide every day for a number of reasons. In
some Western countries, it's the no. 1 death cause, especially for
youngsters. Anyone who can reduce the suicide rate would be a hero in my
What Nancy & ZetaTalk does is to warn people about a threat, so that they
can take the necessary precautions to survive. If somebody misinterprets
this and commits suicide, then that has of course no bearing whatsoever on
her, ZetaTalk or Troubled Times. Tell me, what do you do to lower the
suicide rate in the US?
Having participated in the Troubled Times Inc., I would in fact be proud of
being part of the only organization that has been trying to warn people
about the potential threat and how to survive, should a pole shift happen.

Why on Earth should anyone care? Should I audit Nancy's paycheck as well?
If somebody wants to donate something directly to Nancy or you for that
matter, that's none of my business. Nor should you have to care about that.
Donations to Troubled Times Inc. are in the name of the non-profit, and are
fully accounted for.

As the IRS, which has prolonged our non-profit status. Don't you remember?

On a pseudo-science newsgroup, I would say.
I have never ever seen any of the ZetaTalk debunking crowd provide one
single line of science to this NG. The S/N ratio of sci.astro is real bad,
and is mostly due to the endless ZetaTalk debunking threads, our "friend"
from Hawaii who can never end a thread, the astrology guys and the moon

Now if there is a 10th planet, does that not belong to an astronomy NG?

Never seen that. However, since I haven't been since the start, I cannot
rule out the possibility that there may have been one or two decent postings
initially. Seeing how others are treated here, I would doubt it though.

No groundwork whatsoever. Do all of the debunkers have dyslexia or some
other reading disorder?
I have merely stated the possible reasons for the current lack of verifiable
sightings & images of Planet X, and listed a number of alternative reasons
including <quote> the sci.astro favored explanation that no such thing as a
10th planet exists </quote>.
ZetaTalk has always stated the date of late May 2003. If Planet X does not
show up by then, then the ZetaTalk pole-shift prediction has failed. Period.

I have noted that Nancy uses that "100% accuracy" term. In my world however
nothing is ever 100% anything.
ZetaTalk has a lot of interesting stuff unrelated to Planet X. However,
since Planet X is the main theme, it will of course impact ZetaTalk big time
if May 2003 comes and goes without any Planet X.

Astronomy is an extremely interesting field, probably because we know so
little and still have so much to learn. Many of our current theories are
obviously flawed, and will need correction over time. Therefore I have no
problem accepting that there may be heavenly bodies like Planet X having
different behavior than what we already know. Our current theories cannot in
any way disprove the predicted trajectory of Planet X, it can only say that
it does not comply with our current knowledge and formulas.

Thanks for providing those links, As anyone can see, you have been throwing
the normal sci.astro insults in the air, yet snap when you get some of your
own medicine. And btw, that a certain disorder like PMS only affects one sex
does not make it sexist.
