Bill Cote just bounced a FileRequest off of The Skeptic Tank's Internet
services for the files which specifically mention his name.
Some of you might recall who this poor guy is -- he's the source behind
the infamously unscientific and utterly idiotic "Mysterious Origins of Man"
hoax which was aired on television something like a year ago. (It was,

wolves might leap upon a helpless chick. (Crackpots, as you have all
seen here a thousand times, have difficulty responding to polite
My scientifically proven methodology worked and in an E-Mail he
re-confirmed his committment to self-deception. (Yes, I was surprised.)
My guess is that he's searching Internet for references to him and is
doing "scientific research" for a sequel to his hoax.
We sure hope so!
