PZ Myers Mind Assault.Extended
So little over a Week ago PZ Myers Did what i can only call a hit piece on Michael shermer,He uploaded a Blog post Claiming ,Without any Corporation or Evidence,That Mr.Shermer was a Rapist.Here is a Freezepage,PZ's Hand Grenade Shortly after Mr.Shermer's Attorney sent a cease and desist letter to PZ, copy here,Cease And Desist , I waited to see if PZ would acknowledge his Libel,he did not.Sadly he has Hunkered down to let it all Blow.The Comment section has been heavily patrolled,and censored since that time,There has been many blog posts of others,and You Tube Videos. Some wondering if this was Just a test,like the Drama Gate fiasco. Like this one from AgentofDoubt. Sadly i do not think so, i think that PZ really has his Head up his ass,So seeing as he is Unlikely to Do a retraction , i recorded a Video demonstrating the absurdity of the Unfounded accusation,and the Fact that libel is not,nor has it ever been an Ethical issue.
In Fact the damage that Could have been done by these Unfounded accusations could amount to Tens of thousands of dollars.Shermer is a Paid speaker,and writer.If he loses any speaking engagements or publishing contracts due to these allegations, PZ can,and should be on the Hook for the Amount.Damaging someones Livelihood in this manner is a serious Offence.In my personal opinion, this is what you get when you Mix Atheism with other Ideologys,Like Feminism. Things start getting muddled,and people who should know better stop using the skepticism of one for the Faith of the other.I hope that PZ retracts the Allegations, but i don't think he will. Sadly i think this will end up in court,and that will damage the career of PZ Myers,much as i think that PZ hoped that Mr.Shermers career would have been harmed.Maybe we can chalk it up to Karma.
