"Now since the Nemesis Hypothesis has been thoroughly disproved, perhaps
you'll send Morrison a note suggesting that he update this piece:
in which he thoroughly endorsed the Nemesis Hypothesis as the standard
paradigm, while damning Clube and Napier."
In fact, if you read the link given, you'll see that what Dr Morrison wrote
14 years ago was a review of a book in the popular press called 'The Three
Big Bangs: Comet Crashes, Exploding Stars, and the Creation of the
Universe', By Philip M. Dauber and Richard A. Muller
Dr Morrison only mentions the NH in passing. Because Richard Muller is also
a co-author of the NH. He tells us: "This book is a good read, but should be
taken with quite a few grains of salt."
How you get "thorough endorsement" of the NH, from the admonishment to take
something else one of it's co-authors participated in with a grain of salt
is a mystery to me.
But to say that book review is a "thorough endorsement" of the Nemesis
hypothesis is untrue. And a classic example of the many intentionally
disingenuous falsehoods of Ed Grondine.
