    Why do we persist in granting these intellectually lazy frauds the title “theorists”? A theory is the product of extensive research, experimentation, and scientific peer review. Referring to these people as “theorists” implicitly grants them honors, placing their idiotic arguments at the same level as true theories, such as Gravity, Evolution, and The Standard Model.

    The phrase that should be used is “fantasists”.
