"Of course, the usual village idiots have attacked the solar fission theory on the basis that it requires the planets to be spun off in roughly twin pairs, with one planet slightly larger than the other. So far, in the 2 cases here, only one planet has been observed. But that’s easily explainable."
I think he means me, since I did indeed send (perfectly polite) e-mail reminding him that Van Flandern made "two-at-a-time" a central part of the solar fission idea, as this blog noted last time Bara went into his fake triumph routine, just two months ago.
He "easily explains" the problem by stating that the missing twin just hasn't been observed yet—it's probably too close to the star. That's a bit like saying the Moon you see in the night sky is evidence that there are two Moons, but you can only see one because the other one "probably" hasn't risen yet.
Bara writes of "NASA’s shopworn accretion model" and declares "this new observation fits the solar fission theory perfectly." Well, the accretion model is not NASA's, it's the consensus of the entire planetary astronomy community (that's all the people who know a great deal more than Mike Bara,) strongly supported by quite recent direct observation. As for fitting solar fission perfectly...
A village idiot writes, yes indeed. But I don't think it's me.
