I've just seen a recording of this guy's lecture. He claims that humans have existed for at least 500 milion years, and that evolution can't explain that. :shock: It gets worse after that.

Some of his arguments are shakey, and when he presents evidence of older existence of humans, he often references older sources, often in the 19th century. I don't find those particularly iffy.

Worst are his ideas about what science is all about. :evil:

Has anybody heard of this before? He tends to be somewhat popular among alternative people around here.

If you want to see the lecture, here are the links:

Link2

Note that the files are extremely long. First one is 700 MB, and the second around 350 MB, and they're not going to be around for long.

"I wish to propose for the reader's favourable consideration a doctrine which may, I fear, appear wildly paradoxical and subversive. The doctrine in question is this: that it is undesirable to believe a proposition when there is no ground whatever for supposing it true."
