Renowned arthropologist Prof. William Shear agreed at the Paleoentomology Facebook group (January 23, 2020) that the scorpion paper "is turning into a classic example of over-hyped paleontology" and confirmed that my "critique of this paper is quite valid".
Of course, wannabe expert Bill Needle thinks he knows better and commented "A Gunter Bechly Intelligent Design Creationism Propaganda Shitpost About Nothing!" at his Marmotism blog (Febr. 14, 2020). This deplorable fellow clearly has mental issues.

At his Marmotism blog Bill Needle responded on May 18 with another inept rant of ad hominem and strawman fallacies without adressing any of the scientific arguments. Unfortunately, this is quite typical for ignorant science deniers like him, who are driven by their dogmatic world view rather than by a rational analysis of the empirical evidence.
Article "The Demise of the Artifact Hypothesis" on Discovery Institute's site Evolution News from July 6, 2020 about modern evidence against the artifact hypothesis, which tried to explain away the abruptness of the Cambrian Explosion as an artifact of an incomplete fossil record in the preceding Ediacaran era.

On September 8, 2020 the journal Palaeontologia Electronica published a link to the first part of my article series on their Facebook page, and anti-ID activists immediately went ballistic (see screenshot right).
Just a view minutes later the usual censorship worked and the link was deleted with an obeisant apology:
