In every interaction we teach. Sure this person may be teaching more obviously, but so do you when you simply state a belief and a theory. Indeed they say they use science, but there is so much just on the theory of what is scientific. We cannot claim to know everything, but we can tell people what works for us.
True enough, we teach in every interaction, but I think you can see the marked difference between the experience of learning from observing a personal interaction and learning in a college course. What you get from a college course is quite a bit bigger and broader in scope than what we glean from a random encounter (save for the occasional epiphany). Moreover, putting oneself forward as a teacher in such a manner encourages the student to view them as an authority on the subject - perhaps not perfect, but still very accurate.
When this is not the case though, when a person is not very accurate and they have elected to actively teach others, those students then suffer from a great deal of misinformation, will make bad decisions based upon it, and may very well spread this misinformation to others.
In short, there's a very good reason why we don't let just any person teach in a college.
Citing sources has been a valuable resource for education since Erasmus's time(I'm not sure if he was around exactly when it happened, but bibliiographies were invented by the humanist movement to allow for reliable information in the age of printing and to stop books with false data). It allows people to find reputable information aand is even more important in a time when we are flooded by nonsense all over the internet. I can start a website right now claiming to reveal the history of London and describe a random cosmopolitan city that has nothing to do with london, but people who don' know better would now be misinformed. Citations guard against this. Its not fair to blame people for being skeptical in my opinion
None are blamed for scepticism. All I see is a rather negative view on someone's work. Educational establishments have been teaching a mix of fact and fiction, which can never be stopped. There is no fact of anything, seeing as we may all very well be having a lovely dream. As for citations, well you could cite Louis Carrol on how to get to Wonderland, and even though it is fiction it has actually been used to prove Wonderland exists, and yet where is it?
The point is, why hound others due to your own scepticism? It is clear this individual is not open for discussion. It is up to you how you use the information given.
Personally, I liked what I read. Doesn't mean to say it has any impact on myself.
In short, give them a break, they may be onto something.
