Secondly, the posts 'against' Dr Bell have been based entirely on the context that 'no, you are wrong, it's not sparrowhawks but a range of other anthropogenic reasons such as building design, changes to 'good old' farming practices etc etc'. .
This is wrong. Several posters have been trying to get CPBell to discuss his methods in detail, but he has flatly refused. He is simply not interested in exploring the methods of his work in detail, he just wishes to discuss the conclusions. He appears to want to avoid the situation of flaws being highlighted in his methods, which will therefore undermine the conclusions that he is clinging to. All we are getting from him here is repeated assertions of faith ("I believe..."), very harsh attacks on anyone who disagrees with him or who don't want anything to do with him (such as RSPB and BTO), and a refusal to discuss the details of the methods that he thinks are a revolution in science. This isn't a grilling or a debate, it's a constant stream of position statements. And as long as CPBell thinks it necessary to make unsubstantiated leaps of faith and attack people with a far more impressive scientific track record than his own (which is essentially blank), then others will probably wish to highlight his errors, inconsistencies and flawed logic that are swept along in the torrent of obvious, angry, bitterness (see his last post).
