I'll grant you that FP is concerned about "evidence for the suicidal decline of the west.", but some of the books he lists at http://www.dbdebunk.com/reading.html DO have a decidedly leftist/liberal/anti-GWB slant. Rock-ribbed conservatives, no matter how concerned for the decline of the west, don't recommend books by Noam Chomsky, f'gosh sakes! :-)

I believe FP was some sort of economist/sociologist before turning his attention to databases.

I miss his debunkings, too, but I can sympathize with not wanting to be continuously beaten about the head and shoulders by ignorant idiots.

What evidence is there that http://fallofknowledgeandreason.blogspot.com/ is being maintained by FP, as opposed to being merely linked to by him? Received on Fri Jul 20 2007 - 10:35:49 CDT
