So this guy says he’s a “social scientist” when he’s not, writes a paper that gets published in an amateur magazine after major revisions, his work winds up in The London Times without anyone having first checked him out, or interviewed him, and he proceeds to American TV as as bona fide “expert” who can “prove” that Christianity is bad for a society.
When I investigated this for Chalcedon years ago, I could hardly believe what I found. I mean, this guy Greg Paul was all over the airwaves, noozies bowing down to him, we’re supposed to listen to him, blah-blah-blah–and all of it, from start to finish, was pure and unalloyed poppycock.
I was much surprised by the candor of the Times reporter, Ruth Gledhill, who explained how her article came to be written without the usual procedures to ensure accuracy. Had I been her publisher, I would have fired her for writing the article and re-hired her for being honest about it.
