I think it just boils down to common sense.
The errors being flagged right away , the silence in the camp and the refusal to answer DNA related questions at conferences. Now the promise of new results in the new book which im reliably told will be just a reprint of original perhaps with a "we stand by our results" statement.

Its time that everyone realised you want a mercedes but youre being sold a Skoda.

Ive nothing more to say on it. I wait to be proved wrong. I think i'll be waiting a while.

I have heard the same as Ricky, Paul. Is that just a blurb from Edwards or is it an announcement from the publishers themselves?

God help me if that is dumbed down science, I was practically holding on by my fingertips as it was!!!

Hello Rick.

"I'm yet to be proved wrong."

Never met any women, eh? (heh-heh)

Cheers.

Hello Lynn,

'Proved'?

In my experience it's been a case of guilty until proved guilty.

It's the provenance of the shawl that worries me - more so than the DNA.

Yes - of course, the problems with the provenance were the red flag that suggested right from the start that the DNA analysis had to be flawed.

Hello Gareth. Yes, indeed.

And THAT was the initial problem. However, we were told that the science would clear all that up. But the "science" did not work so well.

Cheers.
