Welcome all seeking refuge from low carb dogma!
“To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes even better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact” ~ Charles Darwin (it's evolutionary baybeee!)
Here's your specific example of "childish" and "unprofessional".
No sense of humor eh?
James Randi is rightfully proud that he exposed Popoff's fraud. Is he childish for taking pride in providing the evidence? No, no, no, NO. Does he repeat "poffoff's a fraud, quack and worse" all the time? hell ya, and I damn well hope he keeps doing it. Same for Uri Geller? (should Randi be proud, repeat as often as possible ...) I bloody well hope so. If I had been one of those who contributed to Taubes' denouement I'd trumpet it from the rooftops. Too bad it's taking so long. But a slow-mo train wreck's still a train wreck.Taubes' corpus, BTW, and its fallout is a lot worse than any fraudulent quack spoon-bender's corpus.  or sequellae ?http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/sequellaeI didn't think that was restricted to medical stuff
