Joel Responds to Simcha’s “A-List” Comment

Joel figured if Hermann Cain and Simcha can speak in the third person, why not Joel? So Simcha has responded, although not to Joel directly, but to the supposed attacks coming his way. Joel has been a party to this… I can’t. I’m sorry, this is annoying.

Anyway, Simcha is not a real scholar. Yes, he is out for the money and the attention, but so are a host of Gentiles too. Oh? Where did that come from? See, Simcha believes that every attack against him is anti-Semitic. This is simply not the case, but when you are as delusional as Simcha, there is no telling what world you are living in. So, anything is liable to happen in his bubble. Anyway, Simcha wants A-list scholars to respond, to rush to his aid.

But, every scholar who does respond, if they are against Simcha, are doing for some theological trauma reasons, anti-Semitism, or the like. In other words, only the scholars who agree with Simcha are considered scholars. Of course, few real scholars will ever validate Simcha’s work, so there is not much of a chance in fulfilling his request.

I guess for me, Simcha is more like on the F-list, where Robert Atwill, Ken Ham, Little Honey Tee-Tee, and Giorgio Tsoukalos reside. He is latching on to self-created hypothesis drawn from no basis in reality. And then, demands that they are answered. Why? Why should real scholars – real, as in real – pay any attention to anything Simcha says? Simcha doesn’t make discoveries anymore than Columbus discovered the new world. No, instead Simcha pulls things out of thin air and wonders why no one else did this before. Argument from ignorance. That is the hallmark of the F-List.

One thought on “Joel Responds to Simcha’s “A-List” Comment”

  1. Maybe they’re trying to channel Julius Caesar in hopes that it will help their (strange?) cause? I’ve been waiting for someone to comment about Simcha’s stuff–I never know what to think of anything he says. I just know I don’t believe him.
