AWARDED IN ABSENTIA
(Statue of the Year)
(adaptations by Robert Baty)
The problem was relatively simple.
The Bert Thompson, Ph.D. Maury statue claim could not explain the
results we were seeing.
Thus, Thompsonites concluded that we must be missing a vital
Thompsonites, noting that we have never seen or measured a bible in
the hand of any Maury statue, concluded that it simply must be there
because Thompson said it was.
Our picture of the known Maury statues is now clearer than ever.
There is no bible in the hand of any known Maury statue, and no

than the possibility that the statue actually exists in the first
