    The very heart of your writing while appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not really settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do well to fill in all those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would surely be impressed.
