Richard Carrier quote about du Noüy[edit]

Do I know how wikiquote is to be properly amended? I do not. I'm probably even doing this wrong. But for crying out loud, can somebody point out that Carrier is a historian, while the four men he's trying to discredit are all professional scientists? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 08:52, 9 October 2011‎

I added a link to Wikipedia's article on Carrier, where information on his background and point of view may be found. Only time will tell whether history will remember or forget his polemics. In the meanwhile, readers can judge for themselves.

On the other hand, the quote hardly seems to be directly about du Noüy. Even reviewing what is redacted with an ellipsis, he is only mentioned in passing. ~ Ningauble 15:25, 9 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
