<sigh> here we go again...

EDG is not a computer programmer, nor is he a geologist... 

The best guess seems to be that he is he is crackpot, often going from group
to group espousing some sort of knowledge and asking for people to forward
his articles to government, schools and other professional bodies with a
demand that public monies be giving to him to support his "research".

A few years ago he started  begging for programming help to process these
"signals" he has been looking for... (odd he has never explained what the
exactly these signals really are.

or that might classify you just as EDG is classified, KOOK or Crackpot

Look at this for all his effort over the past few years...
