A question for our legal folk: When is plunking the batter a tort?
Offered without comment, the only other evidence of Conklin's work, perspective, and research interests I could find online:
Things I will comment on:
I'll concede I didn't look very hard for more information after that (first 2 pages of Google results). I did also find an analysis of the tektronics paper that disagreed with it very strongly, but the analysis didn't have much authority either (internet forum, didn't bother checking into the author) and I have very little interest in the book of Daniel. I have quite a lot more interest in retrieving information about context for sources, which is why I bothered looking into it in the first place.
Couldn't find anything at all about his academic background, but I wasn't personally red-flagged by that lack, because one occasionally does find independent scholars online who are ghostly, even pseudonymous, and also doing pretty fiercely good work in their field.
