Some of you might recall who this poor guy is -- he's the source behind the infamously unscientific and utterly idiotic "Mysterious Origins of Man" hoax which was aired on television something like a year ago. (It was, if you can dig it, even _worse_ than Sun Pictures and "The Discovery of Noah's Ark. Yes, _worse_ than that hoax.) After the MOM hoax aired I leaped on him rather like a pack of rabid wolves might leap upon a helpless chick. (Crackpots, as you have all seen here a thousand times, have difficulty responding to polite inquiry.) My scientifically proven methodology worked and in an E-Mail he re-confirmed his committment to self-deception. (Yes, I was surprised.) My guess is that he's searching Internet for references to him and is doing "scientific research" for a sequel to his hoax. We sure hope so! -=- From ???@???
