Oh yes... isn't he the guy who was once described (I think in either New
Scientist or Scientific American - as "the Patron Saint of Unfashionable
Causes"? Quite apart from his "Bacteria from Space" hypothesis, which
was, to say the least, interesting, I seem to remember there being a bit of
a hoo-har to do with claims that the archaeopteryx fossils are forgeries...
A clever bloke, to be sure, but maybe a touch on the eccentric side... that
may not be such a bad thing though.
