The parallels in astrophysics are there too:
2. Some build their theory off computer models. (this is blown over as well because you can make computers simulate anything you want, like people flying (Superman movies), or metals being bent by tele-kenetic people (X-men), or binary stars transferring mass (even though this has never been observed)).
The above picture is a "mass transfer event". It is bogus. This is what it actually looks like:
3. Some build their theory off physical understanding of nature. (Ignoring physical laws and understanding which has been established for sometime like thermodynamics, electrochemistry, thermochemistry and conservation of angular momentum will get your theory blown over in the wind (the wolf howling).
