223. Depending on who you mean by "we"...
... you could be right, but no, he has not "gotten away with extremely specious arguments." His analysis has not had any serious challenge from the engineering community but you refuse to consider the possibility that it's not because thousands of engineers have "lapped it up," but rather because people who understand have found it to be very solid in what it actually does. You and Eomer simply persist in misunderstanding Bazant's arguments and then disparaging the analysis on the basis of nothing but that misunderstanding and imaginary physics.

Try to prove me wrong by stating in your own words what you think Bazant claims to be demonstrating in his analysis, what the calculations are actually analyzing, and why it matters. One would think that would be a starting point for any critique, but you and Eomer seem to have skipped that step.
