It is astonishing that some people desplay such utter ignorance of very basic school science and then claim that science is wrong.

The worrying thing about stupid letters like this, from people we've never heard of, is that they're not just the usual suspects. The Garners and Hams of this world are not just ranting into a vacuum - they're actually persuading people that their nonsense is correct.

Indeed, but the likes of Ham and Garner can't convince those with power and responsibility. Convincing a Salopian dolt isn't going to change anything. He doesn't have the ability to weild power and hold responsibility.

For what it is worth none of the posters replying to the dolt's letter have supported his position. Incidentally, I have replied to him there.

Even by the standards of cretinists he's an idiot. He's spewing out the tired old canards of Stergosaurs in Cambodia and Dinos in Carlisle Cathedral - you know the one where dinos were roaming the Cumbrian countryside in Tudor times. It's a sign of utter desperation of nutters.

Another appalling letter by Burton:

I've asked him what he thinks about Homo naledi. I await his response with interest.

Oh dear!
Many years ago I was sent a large, very heavy book by a Muslim scholar showing photographs of fossils and their living counterparts.
