barfbag Posted July 16, 2014 Author Share Posted July 16, 2014 (edited) I.e. you were presenting speculations as facts and only now added a pdf that at least somewhat supported that claim. If you read my 2nd post (I think) I mentioned I was having issues citing online because search terms "Hot" "Cold", etc are so common, and the majority of articles about this skip the hot sensation parts. Did you say, "Somewhat support my claim"? I assure you I have much better "search terms" now like "Zotterman (1959)" if you are still on the fence over this. What you mention is a speculation that was formed quite a while back, but is not substantiated by current knowledge anymore. See for example Craig and Bushnell, Science 1994 265/5169 p.252. I was also formed quite a while back as was my education, but you are not countering the argument. If you actually have a link for " Craig and Bushnell, Science 1994 265/5169 p.252." I'll be happy to update my knowledge if need be. I googled but could not find that reference. I know I cited that abstract in post 6, but I am not purchasing the text for the sake of this thread. I did not cite references because I thought most everyone knew this from age 10 by attending science centers and such. It was not until Hypervalent_Iodine questioned it in the 2nd post that I went out of my way to look for citations. If I say the Earth is round here it is likely nobody would want citations. I mentioned science centers thinking that would be enough anecdotal evidence for Hypervalent_Iodine, but as often happens you respond earnestly and then get (metaphorically) pounced on. I had no idea such a simple concept would create so much adversarial stances. That is why no citations were given in OP. Also..... The OP was not an OP. This discussion was moved from another thread so it is not as if I was making such a grandiose claim that I needed citations or references. When I do start threads I normally have citations at hand. That was meant exactly as a stated, a fun fact referencing a previous posters words. That is why this is one of the few OP with a quote from previous post. It was a quick short offhand post that I spent about a minute on, but I'm glad I stood my ground because as my last post shows... I WAS RIGHT! Above a certain temperature the thermosensors do not react. Yes. They stop firing. I said this in my last post with the quote, "For example, when heat or cold become too great, thermoreceptors stop firing. The signal is taken over by pain receptors". Stopping does not mean they never started. and only now added a pdf that at least somewhat supported that claim. You must at least admit that based on 20 year old knowledge I am/was 100% correct. You claim there are new outlooks regarding this which I'd be happy to look at and revise my thinking if necessary, but I think they have more similarities than not. Good luck.
