92. I think you are failing to take into account the original objection...
... to that picture. When trotsky responded after you first posted your 'ice cubes' picture, he commented on it by saying, ".. making any sort of judgment from it is unwarranted." And I very much agree with him - that picture does not allow enough detail to be seen about the 'object' in order to make any conclusions regarding its dimensions. You have not responded with any sort of reasoning or evidence to show that the picture actually does show enough information to reach the conclusion that you have made.

My questioning has been related to this original point concerning the lack of quality shown by that picture negating the usefulness of any measurements made from it. Unless you can show some reason why dimensions measured using that photo can even come close to being accurate, asking me to make my own measurements is not very reasonable considering the fact that you are still failing to take into account that I don't think any measurements that can be made are useful or representative of the actual object.

It would sort of be like asking an atheist how tall he believes God is. First you must convince him that there is a God, and then ask him how tall God might be.

If you do not wish to answer my questions, you are more than free to ignore them. But I should think that anyone who has read the conversation up to this point already knows the answer to my last query. Just because you choose not to respond doesn't mean that the answer is not known.
