I have no interest in discrediting anyone. Instead, we need to know how many papers they have published in the scientific press, which is an indication of their standing and authority in their field of study. The science citation index can be found in most university libraries; I just don't have access to one right now. Maybe someone can check it out for names on the list. Yes, I do claim to be something of an expert since I spent several years as a research scientist getting my PhD. I have published many papers and discovered a new law in my field of science. Since then, I've kept in contact with various academics around the world, and I've had the distinct pleasure of meeting with one or two of the world's best. Yes, because of my expertise in the field, I do know how science is conducted - which is why I get so very frustrated when I hear the "propaganda" put out in the Christian press. I've sat quietly for years so as not to rock the boat, but this year I've come to realize that someone does need to rock it. Really and truly, I don't mean to come across as arrogant. I respect those who know their subjects very well and have spent years in their field - and I don't view them as arrogant for admitting to the fact. Can you sense the frustration? Imagine being an expert in Chinese and listening to someone who's picked up a few words telling you and everyone else things about the language that are simply not true. You sit quietly for years because you don't want to cause a ruckus and simply bite your tongue. How long can you do that before you're just ready to burst? At what point is it your responsibility to stand up and say what you know - no matter how unpopular?
