FYI none of the trolling comments on various sites as “Melissa M” are me. I have a policy these days of only commenting on sites that use verified identities like Disqus, Facebook, etc.
Among those that Noakes has quoted in support of either his view or his approach to science are the evolution-denier and proponent of scientific racism that is Louis Agassiz, and the anti-vaccine Weston Price Foundation. He’ll tweet links to pieces arguing that carbohydrates might have played a role in the Newtown shootings.
It is the first and only device to have adapted piezoelectric technology for the direct purposes of enhancing human performance.
Katherine : Antonio, Miller publicly apologized and feels very, very badly. How long is it okay to rake someone over the coals for an isolated error? Have you ever done something you’ve later regretted? Kindness, conscientiousness and charity are two way streets.
Antonio Valladares: PaleoPeriodical, so being open about fat shaming is OK if you’re not anonymous? Got it.
Karen Phelps: “Antonio”, you and I both know that whatever I say, you will twist it and take it out of context to serve your purposes. In your pursuit, you fail to recognize people who are actually on the same side. I don’t appreciate you attempting to turn this series into something it’s not. It was begun with pure intentions and I’ve received tons of emails and support for the stories told here. It’s impossible to have a rational discussion with anyone hellbent on pushing their own agenda.
Antonio Valladares: PaleoPeriodical (sorry, I don’t know your name)
‘…you will twist it and take it out of context to serve your purposes.’
I don’t do this.
‘I don’t appreciate you attempting to turn this series into something it’s not.’
What I am attempting to do is clarify an important topic, precisely related to this statement that I agree with:
‘It’s my hope that these dispatches will resonate with others out there and help dispel the notion that everyone in ancestral health have hunter-gatherer physiques and zero health struggles. I’m tired of the apologies and I’m tired of people not feeling welcome.’
I think is a fantastic sentiment, I fully support your intentions, otherwise I wouldn’t be concerned enough to comment. However, supporting G Miller seems incongruent with this theme, kwim?
…not sure why you put my name in quotes.
It is a rather spectacular name, I’ll admit. Maybe too strong in diversity for you? ;-)
They seem to think Antonio, who has an excellent blog, is a fake person, because it’s so strange to to question AHS’s bizarro land where their definition of raking through the coals is questioning whether Miller should be an AHS keynote speaker. And actual harassment, lying*, and hateful language? Well, it seems like a stretch they’d ever criticize or make an attempt to exclude these from their conference. They couldn’t even be bothered to mention his actual name in their pitiful now-deleted statement about it. No one even asked for any so-called raking, they could at least make a real statement about it, but they’ve done nothing instead. And they are delusional if they think what Miller said was isolated, he deleted MANY questionable Tweets after he got attention for the more infamous one.
* next time I do something questionable I’ll just say it’s an “experiment" too.
