The Egnor challenge, day 4

Day four and still no answer to the challenge.

I think I agree with some of my readers who’ve complained about this; I’ll cut back on the frequency of reminders to something less than every day…

    Maybe you should write a play about Eneman and zombie Hitler waiting at the side of the road day after day for Egnor to come and meet their intellectual challenge.

    For the record, I’d go with a static counter, like Peter Bowditch does for vapid legal threats or Randi does with Sylvia Browne’s non-answer to her challenge. You want to be snarky without being that guy who calls the girl he likes every day to the point of being stalkerish.

    You know, there were more grammatical errors in that last post than ethical studies done by Mark Geier.

    I admire your spirit, but yeah, it is sort of boring watching a movie you’ve seen so many times before, you know how it is going to end. If those guys could be persuaded by reason, they wouldn’t be making your posts necessary.

    Apparently there’s a googlebomb project underway on this (so that every time you google Egnor you get criticism of him). You should join up.

    Are you sure that’s a Google-bomb, Cain? It seems to me that whenever a couple of the big Scienceblogs take up a theme, they hit right up below Wikipedia and the commercial links.

    Yeah, check out PZ and Skeptico, for example. They both have blog posts with just “Michael Egnor” repeated 20 or so times. Each “Michael Egnor” is linked to criticism of him, including a couple here.

    It seems to be working. Google Michael Egnor and the first four sites are now critical of him. In fact, all but two hits on the first page are critical of him. That’s a huge change from just yesterday morning.

    Just insuring the reliable information about Dr. Egnor is easy to find.
