Hey, everybody …
It probably seems kind of weird that I’m the one person who hasn’t been posting anything about Barton’s publisher pulling his book The Jefferson Lies. The reason, as I’m sure people would assume, is that I’m really busy because of Barton’s publisher pulling his book.
But I did want to post this quick post, first of all to thank the people who have been leaving comments about the Barton thing on my other posts. I really appreciate that!
Second, I want to say that anyone who thinks that Barton’s book being pulled means that Barton has been “taken down,” as some articles are putting it, is wrong. Barton has not been taken down by any stretch of the imagination. His supporters have not lost “faith” in him, and he will find a way to spin this into something that makes him a hero. I’ve already made some predictions on my Facebook page about how I think he’s going to do it. My Facebook page is also where I’ve been talking about this whole Barton thing, so, while I’m too busy to spend much time blogging, please visit me on Facebook. My page is public, but you need to be a friend to post any new posts, and at least a friend of a friend to comment (it’s the only way I can keep my page under control).
I’m still finishing the book I’m writing to debunk Barton’s book, and am close to being done. Barton’s book will not be gone for long. I’m sure he will be quickly re-releasing through his own publishing company, Wallbuilders Press, and it will remain just as popular as it was, if not even more popular.
And, finally, I have to post a link to this one post from Right Wing Watch, just for the sheer irony of it. For those who haven’t actually read Barton’s book (which I assume is most of you), one of the main premises of the book is that you can’t trust “modern academics” just because they’re Ph.D.s. So, what is Barton using as his defense? That a whole bunch of (unnamed) Ph.D.s approved of his work, of course!
