79. I am really puzzled by something here...
If you look at the excerpt of the original article (in German, I presume), then compare it to the "english translation" below, it's clear that they don't synchronize. For example, in the German version, the first references to the professors apparently list their ages behind their names (61 and 34). This is completely missing from the english "translation", however, this is not a major concern, although it does indicate it is not a literal translation.

Towards the end of the German version, it appears to end a full nine lines earlier than the so-called "english translation" below. I'd like to know: who translated this? Why did they leave out the relevant German portions? More importantly, are the last nine lines of the "english translation" actually from the article or did someone add or surmise that? If these questions cannot be answered properly, it might just be that this is, yet, one more example of the dishonesty or plain sloppiness of the "truth movement". Does anyone here actually speak German?
