What a weird thing to say.
Yeah, maybe my whole post was a little weird. Perhaps I was taking terms like "every time" and "nobody" too literally and wasn't understanding your words properly. It seemed like you were saying something like "these other people should be doing x, y and z, it's not good enough that they're not". But maybe I was wrong in reading it that way.
Clarke and his research team have done several panel podcasts and not addressed the reflection hypothesis properly. I would like to know why they exclude certain (non-strawmanned) hypotheses based on all that research.
Have you emailed him/them and asked them?
Every time the reflection hypothesis is mentioned it's a strawman version in order to eliminate it (e.g. "there's no horizon, therefore it's not a reflection").
Can you quote them on that? I've searched the transcript of the Q&A and found Andrew Robinson saying that it was still a possible explanation and don't see anybody mentioning the word "horizon" with regard to the reflection theory.
