2) While your ill-informed comments would not appear to be direct quotes (far too erroneous), the direct utilization of the significant thoughts of others is also considered to be a form of plagiarism. Thus, citations are a requisite. Plagiarism is not a matter to be taken lightly, whether on these pages or, more particularly, within professional realms.
3) Your lack of understanding in regards to radiocarbon dating is merely one of the more glaring examples of your lack of knowledge/understanding in regards to your various poorly constructed "critiques".

Yes, you have beautifully described the position academics want the rest of us to be in: they want us right under their thumbs. They are the beetle-crushers and we the beetle, result: beetlejuice! They lord it over the rest of us telling us how we understand nothing while they, of course, know better --- so what the hell business do we have coming to our own conclusions about what is going on.!!!!! .Academics pull this trick again and again, intimidating the plebs with their accusations of "you don't understand". Unfortunately for them, I can think for myself, so when someone's pulling a fast one, I know it. And academics are pulling a fast one. If you fall for it, then the more fool you.
