What I find quite amusing is that even though this guy has a PhD in Hebrew Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages (which presumably would suggest that he is a rational sort of person) he sustains a keen interest in "ufology" - the pseudoscientific study of unidentified flying objects, along with all sorts of magical aliens and mysterious coverup conspiracies.

In other words, the way I see it, he is the kind of person who would be disposed to embracing theories like Sitchin's.

And yet he is still able to see with as much ease as I have that Sitchin is a fraud and a liar... or at the very least self-deluded.

It seems that all it takes is a modicum of knowledge about any of the subjects Sitchin claims to be an expert in in order to see how wrong he is.
