A better picture of Omani Ophiolite

 

What do you know of Ophiolite, ?       I thought you were an Historian and a Philosopher from your profile     ?

Gneiss. Go after the little schists. I hope you can sue the chert off their back — that will certainly erode their confidence. You probably have the same sediment.

What do you know of Gneiss, schists,  chert, erosion and sediment , by your profile I thought you were an atomic submarine optical specialist/expert , not a Geologist

 

Whats going on here , everyone's suddenly become an Earth Science enthusiast !

Good night Gilbert o suliven , I miss read you all along. You really are multi-disciplined

Not another one, I get the feeling ,there is a ganging up ,going on. There I was trying to be serious having made a study this Wednesday, then made a painting that day, with my tongue in cheek, about real serious Omani Ophiolite , Imatfaal has a much better picture at his fingertips , and the real Ophiolite is no where to be seen, and I am taking the flack !

These days my relation with geology is purely plutonic; I was very interested as a younger man as I believed it was the only science where dropping acid was acceptable and when one got boulder one could write papers on measuring a dyke's cleavage.  But then I realised the competition was too fierce - too many people out standing in their field.

A lawyer has to know what rocks look like - because rock/paper/scissors plays a much bigger role in the courtroom than most judges are willing to admit.

On topic, I think we should sticky the original article. We have some amateur trolls and quacks that could learn from that. I love a good troll... it's the bad ones that annoy me.

 Speculations has over 3000 threads, and the trash can almost a tenth of that. So, even given some legitimate speculation that's not contrary to established science, undeleted spam, duplication, etc., I'd say a thousand quack threads — threads that agree/identify with the satire in the article — is a reasonable minimum estimate.

I just noticed there is no external info about SFN, not even a wiki article.

I found thay your geological puns are a bit quakey. Theres too much on my plate to let people rock my mind with watered down sediments towards an unnamed quack that burst through the crust of modern science.

It doesn't. The OP was satire about quacks.

Generally it's taken for granite that the statues quo are founded on bedrock.
