If you are insinuating that my suggested tests are ridiculous and therefore
unworthy of consideration then you missed the point.  Of course they are
ridiculous, but they are concrete and practical.  I have not read this paper,
nor will I.  I also will not fall victim to pompous tests that do not account
for the infinite variables that would absolutely blow such tests.

If I were going to the moon and I knew the only way I could return is with a
DAT or a CDR, I would take the CDR, hands down - and I wouldn't need some
paper or the word of a supposed authority to make my decision.

Good luck. --Jeff
