>From the Dallas News article:

In his e-mail Saturday, [non-engineer] Galland said he was "interested in the science behind engineering. Engineering in itself is of little interest to me as it tends to simplify that which is not."

He stressed that the tentlike structures he analyzes are nonlinear, making his physics skills more useful than a "static engineering approach. In general, engineers do not excel in physics or mathematics."


Mr. Galland was also quoted as saying that "physicians don't excel in biology or anatomy, rocket scientists don't do well in fluid mechanics or ballistics, and lawyers are experts in EVERYTHING."

I mean, this just stands to reason
