Evidently, my post from yesterday hit a raw nerve with Kevin Levin. (Facts are stubborn things.) He attempts to refute what is so blatantly obvious and common knowledge with ridiculous ad hominem (exposing the weakness of their position) attacks and obfuscation. It's quite interesting to observe how an "uneducated" non-academic like myself can cause such heartburn among the intelligentsia in academia.
Perhaps Kevin and his readers should revisit some of my older posts on the same subject. In this post, even Professor Peter Carmichael acknowledges that at least some of my criticisms were on target:
"I agree with some of your initial comments (Richard) about academia and professional history in general."
Loud denials of that which is obvious only call more attention to that which is obvious. Please, do keep it up.
