Dear Dr. Wieland,

It has come to our attention that you are still claiming that Barry did not answer criticisms to the 1987 paper, Atomic Constants, Light and Time. Barry, Trevor Norman (his co-author), Lambert Dolphin (physicist) and Alan Montgomery (professional statistician) all spent over two years responding to every criticism and question. Some of the responses were printed in your journal there in Australia and some in CRSQ, published in the United States. We are sure you are at least vaguely aware of that.

Other responses to the criticisms and challenges were published in Galilean Electrodynamics and other places. Alan Montgomery also presented a rebuttal to the criticisms at the Internation Creation Conference of 1994. His reference to that is on our website here.

It was when the same criticisms and questions were being offered for the third, fourth and fifth times that the responses stopped. Nor did all the responses get published.

However, to the best of our knowledge, every question and challenge has been recorded and responded to here on our website in either the Discussion section or the Critics section.

We therefore respectfully request that you stop misinforming people regarding Barry's "lack" of responding to his material.

Thank you.

Barry and Helen Setterfield
