Alexander Waugh's primary claim has the advantage that it can be scientifically tested:owlice wrote: ↑Wed Mar 14, 2018 1:57 amneufer wrote: ↑Sat Mar 03, 2018 9:04 pmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Waugh wrote:

Waugh is an advocate of the Oxfordian theory, the belief that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford wrote the works of William Shakespeare. He claims to have found surreptitious allusions embedded in 16th- and 17th-century works revealing that the name "William Shakespeare" was a pseudonym used by Oxford to write the Shakespeare oeuvre.>>neufer wrote: ↑Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:48 pmhttps://michaelshermer.com/2001/11/baloney-detection/ wrote:

To detect baloney — that is, to help discriminate between science and pseudoscience — I suggest 10 questions to ask when encountering any claim.
3. Have the claims been verified by another source?
5. Has anyone gone out of the way to disprove the claim, or has only supportive evidence been sought?
- Waugh claims that Edward de Vere's remains lie buried under Shakespeare's 1740 statue in Poet's Corner.
- That the Stratfordian man has been a Masonic conspiracy for 400+ years.
Most of the analysis that I have done for the last 20 years also strongly favors
a Masonic conspiracy for 400+ years; including the fact that the 1623 First Folio was dedicated to
GRAND MASTER WILLIAM HERBERT the Earl of Pembroke (and his brother Phillip):
GRAND MASTERS, OR PATRONS, OF THE FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS IN ENGLAND,
- "Moore C W The Freemasons Monthly Magazine Vol IV 1845"
from the coming in of the Saxons to the year 1839, Compiled and
condensed from the most authoritative records, by Br. Thomas Joseph
Tennison, President of the Masonic Council of Armagh, Ireland.
1607: James I., a Brother Mason, Grand Patron by Prerogative, appointed
Inigo Jones, Grand Master of all England, in which capacity he served
for 11 years. His Wardens were Master WILLIAM HERBERT the Earl of Pembroke,
& *NICHOLAS STONE*, Esq., who, attended by many
Brothers attired in Craft clothing, walked to White Hall, and laid
the first stone of the Banquetting Hall, with knocks, huzzas,
and sound of trumpets, throwing a purse of gold upon the stone
for the operatives to drink “To the King and Craft!"
1618. WILLIAM HERBERT, Earl of Pembroke, was chosen Grand Master.
He appointed Inigo Jones his Deputy.
