    The burden of proof lies with those making the claim. Gentry claims that the Earth is about 6,000 years old. Where is his evidence?

    I agree, I say that Bigfoot, the Lock Ness monster and the tooth fairy all exist, unless you can prove that they don't,
    the jury awaits.

    LOL, the burden of proof lies with who is making the assertion. Always.

    You should read again what he said. The critique on the evidence, not the person.

    That would be grammar. And the papers have no substance to avoid.

    I must admit that I wouldn't know whether at some point the papers get some substance. I didn't encounter any, but I didn't read the whole paper. I might try again this weekend.

    I will say that one of the characteristics of a good scientific article (and that is what was claimed these were) contains a concise, accurate and dispassionate summary of the research up to that point in the introduction. The introduction of the article I read was had none of those characteristics.

    I read the abstract of the first. It was more polemic than abstract and had details (intended to impress I'm sure) that do not belong in an abstract.

    Half the titles are enough to raise red flags on their own.

    If he is a scientist, he will say something along these lines: "there is as much evidence supporting the existence of these creatures as there is supporting Thor or a global flood".

    Then it looks like ET is being selective in even what his brother says.

    We're not in a courtroom. As for the jury -- Wasn't Gerrity's "science" already reviewed by a "jury" of his peers... and found wanting?

    What was said demonstrates a complete lack of evidence, and Gerrity has repeatedly demonstrated a complete lack of character.

    Oh, so that's just a theory (and by that I don't mean a scientific theory but just a collection of speculative and generalized explanations).

    Interesting. A theory from the 1930's. I always thought Moses was supposed to have written the Pentateuch without some other primary source according to many variants of Judaism and Christianity but this is the first I'd heard that he only compiled them based on "tablets" handed down.

    I especially LOVE Wolf's doubt that Moses would have been able to read a Pre-Tower-of-Babel tablet. So much for "confounding their languages", eh?

    LOL!

    Pretty clever to imagine things like tablets handed down through the generations.

    It sounds like this "hypothesis" is still very much in debate and is rather outside of the usual schools of the "Documentary Hypothesis" or the "Mosaic Authorship" hypothesis.

    So can I ask why the Tablet Hypothesis appeals to you? Do you have a reason to believe in hypothetical tablets? Or is this more stuff like the Bethelehem Star Hologram that is added onto the Bible? Are the tablets mentioned in the Bible?
