Thank you for this fine example of what J. R. Cole described, in his paper Cult Archaeology and Unscientific Method and Theory (Advances in Archaeological Method and Theory, Vol. 3, pp. 1-33):

A fifth cult archaeology theme is an ambivalent antielitism:
vilification of the Establishment coupled with an inordinate respect
and envy for it. Scientism pervades cult archaeology, and Big Name
approval and endorsement is pursued fervently. Arguments are won by
citing endorsements as much as evidence - something is an effective
argument because an authority has said it is, not because of
empirical criteria subject to test. Majority opinion in science is
berated, yet votes are hailed as proof. . . .
