back up what you have to say about Shermer or keep quite about it. "Science and myself" - he says. ha -another grandiose claim I rightfully stated - that you make. Funny how Shermer favours science too isnt it. Though clearly, not the kind of science you choose for yourself, as you say
The word Trumpet is used as an observaion not a statement or a conclusion. I have no issue with that particular observation nor should you. It sounds like a trumpet, wow ? big deal .. If he said "The trumpets mean that the angels are coming down from heaven to bring the wrath of God on the world", that would be a completely fabricated statement and I would fully agree with you at that point.
The problem is you are trying to connect the conspiracy dots, like Mr Shermer does, and the same people you accuse of being crazy do exactly that also.
I still expect a retraction, and stand by what I said
