Detectando os Pseudo-Cientistas (e Pseudo-Historiadores!)

Precisamos urgentemente, como cientistas e céticos, aplicar esses critérios a Earl Doherty e Dorothy Murdock (aka Acharya S.). Não deveriamos deixar esse trabalho apenas para teólogos...

“Earl Doherty is a masterful writer and an indefatigable scholar who leaves no relevant stone unturned. Any critic who seeks (desperately) to write him off because he writes without establishment academic credentials only demonstrates how far he himself falls short of recognizing real scholarship when he sees it. Has Doherty had to resort to publishing his own books? So did Hume. That’s no excuse for anyone interested in the Christ Myth or the historical Jesus not to read this all-encompassing book…Earl Doherty’s masterpiece.” Robert M. Price, author of Deconstructing Jesus, The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man, and The Pre-Nicene New Testament.
