The British Chiropractic Association continue to plunge ever more convincingly away from competent discussion and toward incoherent babbling.
Alun Salt has done a little research, and it turns out the BCA seem to believe that they have discovered and translated ground-breaking ancient manuscripts, pre-dating any currently known written records of any kind from that part of the world. Their organisation generally has no focus at all on archaeology, or the study of ancient languages, which makes this accomplishment all the more impressive. They’ve surpassed numerous world experts, while totally playing down their skill and achievements in this area. The humility is truly inspiring.
Actually, Alun’s got the sarcastic angle covered pretty well in his own blog. It’s more likely the BCA have just been a tad carelessly imprecise with their reckoning of the exact figures. (Which is totally different from just making up some bogus crap, of course.) But this sort of thing is becoming characteristic of them, in the eyes of some. Is anyone surprised to learn that they’re making demonstrably implausible claims, and not doing a whole lot to retract or clarify these claims once their questionable nature has been pointed out? Or does that just sound like the sort of thing they’d do?
My level of content’s been a bit unremarkable here lately. Partly I’ve been distracted with a new soopah-sekrit project, which I’ll share with people soon if I don’t give up in a sulk after a week because it’s too difficult. I’ll try to keep saying more interesting things here as well.
