>>>Not only is Shermer not a scientist, he isn't even a skeptic.
>>>He's a debunker, tried and true.

>>Y'know, I've _never_ liked that term 'debunker' applied to
>>ufology. It half implies that somehow, the subject is 'bunk' and
>>the 'debunker' is trying to show how much 'bunk' the subject is,
>>a noble pursuit, seemingly.

>>I wonder if there is a term that suggests a noisy negativist is
>>actually trying to sully the reputation of a fundamentally good
>>and sound subject? And a term as easy to say as "debunker."

>>I don't think this is a good choice, but 'trasher' tells the
>>story accurately. How about 'bunker'? Any ideas?
