It's not a matter of it it "seems." You have it backwards. The Foveon sensor very obviously does have "a lot less aliasing" than a Bayer sensor.

No; it has a lot less color moire than a Bayer CFA camera with a weak or absent AA filter. It has a lot more aliasing, in general (luminance), than a CFA camera with an AA filter.

You don't know what you are talking about, typical of Sigma/Foveon detractors.

Actually, John Sheehy does know what he is talking about. Can you provide evidence to the contrary? Or, that he is a "Sigma/Foveon detractor" as compared to being fair and objective?
