  1. The core of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not really settle properly with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you would do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I will surely end up being amazed.
