Seriously, stop flapping and squawking for a minute, or you'll end up laying an egg.
I can't argue with you - I haven't read the book yet.
I don't know fully what's in it - I haven't read the book yet.
Beyond the published blurb, I don't know what sources or evidence is going to be used. I've seen what Scott has written on this forum on elsewhere - but I haven't read the book yet.
I don't know if it will good. Yes, I'm looking forward to it. I think it *might* be a gamechanger - I certainly feel that it's high time someone came along and washed away the mess left by Sitchin (and exploited by traditionalists ever since) and put forward a *comprehensive* case for the prosecution on this topic - but it might be garbage, it might be a disaster, you might be able to pick it apart and expose it as worthless junk, but I don't know - because I haven't read the book yet.
I haven't read the book yet. So I cannot judge it yet. I know what has written in the past but I do not exactly what he has written in this book. I cannot judge the future based on what I know from the past - that is not methodology, it is prejudice, it is premature confirmation bias, it is assumption.
Assumption. This whole thread is a maelstrom of angry, confused, outraged assumption, poisoned by personal dislike.
Take a chill pill. Enjoy the summer. Wait till the book comes out - remember this is *not* alternate history, this is about a controversy in mainstream history, which is what makes it so fascinating. It won't validate or invalidate SC's tombs/seedvault theories - which why I think it is rightly in a completely separate book. It is an important historical question and Scott's case will be out there in print for the whole world to see and judge; if he is exposed as a fool, it will no doubt be party time on here.
But maybe just hang fire till you read the damn thing first eh?
That's all I can say. It will all come out in the wash, one way or another.
I'll leave with one prediction though. I'm not a betting man, but if I were... now that this is once more a "commercial" subject, my money would be on Robert Bauval rushing out a counter-argument book this Autumn.
You heard it here first! :-)
Cheers all for now and take care.
