>The notion that one can write anything absent even the most rudimentary
level of personal understanding is absurd.<

No one has ever claimed that. This thread consists largely of so-called
rebuttals to claims that were never made.

Melody said it did not follow from expert knowledge of a topic, that the
expert could communicate it well. That is true.

It is also true that someone who has only just learned something may
communicate it better than the expert. England belatedly adopted the
Gregorian calendar in 1752 because its merits were presented to Parliament by
Lord Chesterfield. Chesterfield was not an astronomer, but the astronomer
could not present the matter plausibly and persuasively. Chesterfield could.

Melody's basic point was an analogue of that. Several here have almost
completely misunderstood that and responded to what they thought they saw,
not what Melody wrote.
