So today I was struck by a column on SA (Scientific American) by no less than Michael Shermer, one of the luminaires of the Skeptical movement, entitled "No, There Wasn't an Advanced Civilization 12,000 Years Ago."

Come, hasn't that particular "theory" been disproved long ago?

Apparently fabulists keep churning out such things.

Me, I have a simpler view of the matter: there was no advanced human civilization in ancient times, because if there had been, to quote Michael Duncan, "We'd all be commuting to our jobs in parallel universes" by now.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.
