One of the BCSE's favourite ploys is to claim that those who question Darwinism's factual basis are unqualified cranks. In one particularly egregious incident, the BCSE's leader, a man whose entire working life has been in management consultancy, accused a fellow of the Institute of Physics and a university professor of being ignorant of physics.
When I began investigating, however, it soon turned out that charging others with having bogus credentials was not a good game for the BCSE to get into. A national centre for science education founded and run by a team none of whom are research scientists or educators (and only one who once was) is the very definition of bogus. IT consultants and managers, writing to the government claiming to be scientific experts; what exactly was the word "bogus" invented for, if not for this? In my research, I discovered numerous examples of the BCSE seeking to cover up this embarrassing lack by providing grossly misleading and downright deceitful descriptions of its leaders' qualifications.

In this series, I began examining the BCSE's claims about the qualifications of its chairman, Mr. Michael Brass, and the very different reality behind them.
