I tend to agree with you.
However, I think your estimate is much too conservative, certainly
when it comes to the monumental topic of man's origin and antiquity.

Personally, I figure pseudoscience outnumbers real science by 100 --
maybe 1,000 -- to 1.

Fortunately, those odds don't seem to bother Ted Holden and me.
We assure you we'll keep fighting pseudoscience and pseudoscientists
until we're old and gray.
