    In the article attached (the language and style is perfect, like ones of W. Shakespear) I present an argument,
    that the convictions and beliefs are important in the Quest for Objective Truth.
    I will add this text to any of my submissions into top scientific journals (mathematics, physics).
    Please read and reply with your opinion/feelings.

    Your abstract isn't an abstract. There are at least 2 errors of grammar in your first and only sentence in the "abstract". This is terrible.

    There is no data, no analysis, no references, no cogent argument. It's a poorly written opinion letter at best, but were I an editor of a news paper I would not publish such thing. If I were part of the review board of a scientific paper in mathematics, I would dismiss this as "junk mail".

    This will sound cruel, but I think you should contact people in mental health services. You seem to be under a delusion of grandeur that sees you obsessing over some imagined slight to your person. It pushes you to do ver stupid thing and humiliate yourself in public places. This isn't healthy and you can get better. You deserve better. Seek help. I'm sure there is some resources available for you either online on in your area.

    Eh. Let one enjoy one's delusions of grandeur. It's fun.

    You should see the robot army playing bagpipes in my delusion of grandeur as I take over the world and become dictator. People are going to quake in their boots now once they see my robots. They even have red glowing eyes. *Grin*

    What....?

    You didn't even spell "experience" right.

    This is like a blog or twitter post. You are just stating your opinion without backing it up with evidence. You aren't referencing other materials.

    On top of that, everything can fit on just one page.

    A person just needs 1 minute to read and review it and its done.

    You overpromised. Please try harder.

    A lot of abstracts are around 150 to 250 words although the majority of them are considerably longer. I don't think there is exactly a rule in regards to length just to be fair about it.

    Anyways for our friend @questfortruth this might prove useful for making improvements.....

    I was taught how to do abstracts when writing research papers when studying graphic design. 1 or 2 sentences wouldn't cut it.

    No it certainly wouldn't*.

    Also an abstract is only a summary of a paper which from my understanding, needs to be included with the abstract.

    *Although one could argue, a one or two sentence abstract alone, will be far superior to Kent Hovind's entire dissertation.

    Any paper submitted with that would be summarily rejected. Clearly the author doesn't know the basics of what makes the system work.

    Prove it. I can not repent a hypothetical mistake. I can only repent if the mistake is demonstrated to me; and I am convinced, that it is not usual fake-news/trolling/bullying.

    Can you provide references to published articles?

    By definition convictions and beliefs are subjective by their nature as 'of the mind' only.

    Objectivity is defined as 'being supported by objective verifiable evidence 'outside the mind.'

    As example, the absolute majority of scientists have accepted
    the proof for Goldbach's weak conjecture, but not all of the scientists have accepted
    it yet, mainly because it is not published in a journal; so, one needs
    to have own convictions and opinion to move forward.

    What you describe is a proof in math, and not science. Math in and of itself need not be based on objective verifiable evidence. Math develops over time based on theorems and proofs, and is a tool for science.

    Nonetheless science is dependent on objective verifiable evidence, base on objective as defined. Both math and science, of course, is not dependent on convictions and opinion.
