the author has failed to note one of the steps of the scientific process: creating testable predictions. If your hypothesis is right, what predictions does it make? what does it predict that current explanations do not?

It's bad to back up your opinions with facts because reality has a well known liberal bias... or errr... our facts are some times wrong... or I'm sick of being proven wrong, my opinion is just as good as anyone else's, stop using facts against me!
