And guess what? Despite changing his self-description to “adventurer, author, world explorer,” the old, false claims that he is an archaeologist still appear on his new (2012) personal website! He scrubbed his official biography and home page of any reference to his twenty years (1984-2004) spent pretending to be an archaeologist, but he never changed the descriptions of his books.
Now, you might immediately shout that I call myself a “skeptical xenoarchaeologist,” and isn’t that just as bad? It would be if there were any alien archaeological remains to study, but so long as they continue not to exist, the emphasis rests on the “skeptical” half of my descriptor, since anyone can become qualified to skeptically examine xenoarchaeological claims. (I do have a bachelor’s degree in archaeology.) Since “archaeologist” is a real job description and “xenoarchaeologist” is not (being up there with “ufologist” as a job title), I don’t think this bit of publicity (bestowed upon me by the Space Archaeology Wiki) is fooling anyone into thinking I’m something I’m not; nor am I using false credentials as an argument from authority for radical revisions of history.
