Where did Bananaman come up with this name? "Way of the Master" sounds like the name of a karate dojo or something. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 19:02, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Dr. T. N. Tahmisian[edit]

The article referenced a quote attributed to Dr. T. N. Tahmisian that is frequently used by Ray Comfort and countless other creationists:

Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a fact of life are great con-men, and the story they are telling may be the greatest hoax ever.

Then, the article goes on to day "Not only is the opinion of a single nuclear scientist of questionable relevance, Dr. T. N. Tahmisian does not appear to be a real person." and references a usenet discussion thread.

However, Theodore N. Tahmisian does indeed exist (or, rather, he did, as he apparently died in 1986). He was a physiologist for the United States Atomic Energy Commission and worked at the Argonne Laboratory in Indiana. He apparently wrote some cranky things about evolution in the late 1950s that has been quote mined by the creationists for a long time. --Cosmikdebris (talk) 22:34, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
