I did a Google search to check this assertion, and apparently those other bloggers are me and … a few random sentences here and there. So, I guess it’s just me.
However, Wolter apparently is not interested in the views of non-fans: “You are certainly welcome to not like the show or Scott Wolter, that is certainly your right,” Wolter writes. “Just do us all a favor and tell someone else who might want to hear your opinion.”
I ask that any readers who visit Wolter’s blog after reading this please honor his request and ask only factual, specific questions about his historical claims. No personal attacks, please. Examples might be something like:
- The Book of Tea-Tephi, which S02E01 references by name, and whose claims the episode explores, carries a copyright date of 1897, and its author acknowledges that it is a work of fiction. Were you aware that the book is not a medieval text?
- The British county records office that S01E02 said provided confirmation of the existence of Peter “Rough” Hurech denies providing any such information to you or to Alan Butler and states that their records have no such name. What medieval documents do you have showing this man existed? Why have you not made these public?
- You frequently claim that Henry I Sinclair, Earl of Orkney sailed to America in the late 1300s. The only historical text allegedly supporting this is the Zeno Narrative of 1558. Why do you believe Prince Zichmni of the Zeno text was Henry I Sinclair? Since the text does not mention America but rather Greenland, why do you believe its description of Greenland is “really” Nova Scotia?
- Adolf Hitler is seen in a famous painting making the “Mary Magdalene” secret hand signal. Do you believe that the Nazis are part of the Freemasonic cult of democracy and freedom you identify with the hand signal in your most recent book?
And because I am a nice guy, I’ll even put in a plug for the Duluth Trading Company, the manufacturer of Scott Wolter’s Bulldozer Backpack. They have just published Scott Wolter’s celebrity endorsement of their product:
“My Duluth Trading Company Bulldozer Backpack has truly become one of my favorite travel accessories. It has been extremely durable over the course of two seasons of both filming and globetrotting,” says Wolter. “I’ve had many backpacks in the past and the others would be in tatters by now. It’s really comfortable to wear – I’ve had up to 50 pounds of books, my computer, my rock hammer, rock samples, etc. and it hangs in there just great. The zippers are still perfect and there are no tears or seams starting to come apart. I love my Bulldozer Backpack and can’t wait to bring it along on more adventures.”
