This would all be discouraging were not Jason Colavito’s lengthy reviews of this stuff so entertaining.
Both of these essays were posted this month. Annotations are mine.
- Readers will appreciate the photographic sleight-of-hand (read: deception) by Dr. Melba Ketchum of the recent Bigfoot DNA fiasco. Talk about depending on reader credulity.
- I saw this book at a Barnes and Noble recently. Thank you, Jason, for saving me the self-torture.
- Readers will appreciate how Jason documents the poor methodology, outright errors, and plagiarism in this book.
- I’ve collected a few dozen PDFs of accounts of giant human skeletons in the US in the 19th and early 20th centuries. I can tell you firsthand that it is quite inadequate to end your research with newspapers. Just because it’s in a newspaper, especially that era, doesn’t mean it’s true or that the “find” has been processed correctly. Newspaper reporters aren’t doing scientific testing. Hard to believe we have to point that out.
- Once again, it’s pseudo-research (and non sequitur thinking) like this that gives the idea that there was a Creator a bad name. Pretty sad.
