EXCUSE MEEEE! BUT WHO IS IS THAT IS BEING HOSTILE HERE! This is one of the most bombastic posts that I have seen from you. Now as for me being such when I say that Furtell's positioins is being *religious* I say so BECAUSE he has presented no facts to support his position. The fact that stretch tektites exists shows that they formed here on Earth, not the moon because shuch could not form on the moon and then survive entry into the Earth's atmosphere. That is it in a nutshell. But as for me being *aggressive* or *hostile*-- who is calling the kettle black? You had better re-read the following-- Geez, Michael, you surprise me again. Steve Schoner.
