I am trying to get the full citation for this:

The evolutionary planetary theorist Alan Boss of the Carnegie Institution in Washington D.C. said, ‘The leading theory for planetary formation has encountered a mortal blow.’

New Scientist, 24 July 2004, p. 9. [1]

Creationist 03:45, 13 January 2006 (GMT)creationist

I decided to use the quote and simply give the AIG citation

Creationist 14:41, 13 January 2006 (GMT)creationist


The AIG citation was incorrect (the quote has been changed). The original article can be found here

On-line sources for many of the other quotes have been found by Barry Desborough - they are at here, here, here, here, here and here. Note that these links require subscription to view the contents.

What change are you referring to, Roy? The quote in the article is correct. The full quote is, "The leading theory for giant planet formation has encountered a mortal blow, and the reaction is to put the theory on life support by invoking a physical phenomenon, core erosion, that had never before been raised." The word "giant" between "for" and "planet" is missing on the talkpage, but not in the article here. The AiG citation is correct. It is in the 24 July 04 issue. The rest of the quote reflects the usual approach by materialistic pseudosciences of "putting dead theories on life support" so well that I stuck it in. Ungtss 01:27, 4 April 2006 (GMT)
Hi Ungtss (how is that pronounced?) - I was referring to the change made from the version taken from AiG to the correct version, after noting that the quote had been changed following discussions elsewhere but AiG was still being cited as a source, even after it was discovered that their version was wrong. I should have said that AiG's text was incorrect, not that the citation was incorrect. Roy 11:17, 10 April 2006 (GMT) P.S. any chance of getting the links added to the article?
Gotcha -- thanks for checking that out -- Ungtss is pronounced like a techno backbeat (bass drum and symbol ung tss ung tss ung tss) -- i'll stick the links in forya, but i only have a subscription to New Scientist -- any chance you could tell me what quotes the other links belong to?
