I have used the following quotation from Eldredge and Tatterson extensively on these pages in the last several days:
Darwin’s prediction of rampant, albeit gradual, change affecting all lineages through time is refuted. The record is there, and the record speaks for tremendous anatomical conservatism. Change in the manner Darwin expected is just not found in the fossil record.
On December 11, 2013, someone who goes by “REC” at antievolution.org posted the following:
Had to stop by the library for other reasons, but apparently, Barry was right. The quote he used to pillory people with wasn’t mined, it was fabricated
The post was cross-posted at The Skeptical Zone.
Then, REC posted this:
TLDR version: the quote is in there, on another page
Dear readers, everywhere I post I do so under my real name. I have been accused in front of the entire world of fabricating a quotation. This is an extremely serious matter indeed.
I call on both websites immediately to take down every reference to the fabrication accusation.
Does anyone know who REC is?
