Who are the Scholars for JMC?
What are their credentials? I've been googling the subject off and on and I see more criticism from academia, secular and religious for JMC. Some call it "contrived" and "pop science". I read some of Acharya S's material, which I found interesting, however she draws much criticism from secular academia. Her credentials always seem to be in question. Now I'm not sure if that's an attack on her own sheepskin or the schools she attended.
Is there anyone in JMC camp that is respected by mainstream academia? What is your (JMCers) opinion of this? Do you see this lack of academic respect as some sort of "conspiracy" the way YEC'ers see mainstream science academia regarding evolution?
