You have been ignored for common interest of mankind.

A variety of sophisticated laboratory techniques was used to determine where the arsenic was incorporated.

Also, since the bacteria grew even when the phosphor was removed, I'd say that it didn't have any phosphor to use, wouldn't you?

Of course none of this should be believed since NASA is a conspiracy.

It was NASA funded. They are clearly throwing money at projects that will support the Round Earth conspiracy, hence their claims that the announcement would have effects on astrobiology.

EDIT: Goddamn, I am just horrible with my grammar lately. Mixing up yours and you'res and theres, theirs, and they'res.

Please provide evidence to support this claim.
How dare you have the audacity to demand my deposition. I've never even heard of you.

I "fix'd" your grammar in your sentence about your poor grammar.
It was a sentence with a predicate, but no subject.  :(
