So in this context you used quotation marks to cast doubt on Schoch's credentials/credibility as a "scientist"? And yet he is qualified to pass judgement on the genuineness of the cartouche?”
No; to the contrary. Again, the stated ”extraction” was the word ‘scientist’ from Scott Creighton’s “scientific means”. I meant precisely what I wrote; Dr. Schoch is a “scientist”, specifically, a degreed geologist/geophysicist. Therefore, until the ”political climate of Egypt” substantially improves, Dr. Schoch’s professional observation, as to the antiquity and validity of the ‘Khufu Cartouche’, is the lone ‘voice in the wilderness’ on which we must rely for the foreseeable future.
