Pharyngula

I can almost understand plagiarizing Glenn Greenwald, but what is beyond comprehension is building a blog that seems to be entirely a mass of unattributed, plagiarized content. He’s got sections in the sidebar for “Recent Posts” and “The Latest from Mark Mitchell”, and I thought for a moment that maybe the latter would be his original content, but no, those are plagiarized, too. It’s as if Chauncey Gardiner were to write a blog—a completely empty, uncreative mind is just shuffling scraps from the internet and calling it his work.

And there’s almost no quality control at all — he’s parroting me!

    He has no more scientific authority than a suburban school teacher.

    You overlooked one thing: “scientific authority” is a contradiction in itself. Arguments from authority are unscientific.

    If “a suburban school teacher” understand the scientific method, let them write books on that. More power to them.
