The Koolade over at ARN is particularly strong today. Robert Deyes speaks of “biologist Casey Luskin”. Seriously. At best, Luskin was a
geologist MS in earth sciences before becoming a lawyer. He has one (second-author) paper:
Lisa Tauxe, Casey Luskin, Peter Selkin, Phillip Gans, and Andy Calvert, ?Paleomagnetic results from the Snake River Plain: Contribution to the time-averaged field global database,? Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems (G3), 5(8) (August, 2004).
Creationist credentialing once again, I fear.
Equally as problematic is Deyes’ claim:
We learn many a lesson from Conan Doyle’s thriller perhaps the most important being the absolute need for strong evidence and empirical rigor in science.
Indeed. Pity Conan Doyle descended into spiritualism and a naive belief in fairies. What we can learn from his literary productions isn’t as much as Deyes wants.
