Who compared our diet arguments to world is flat v pluto is a planet?

This has been driving me crazy because I cannot recall who/where someone made a comment about our low-carb/Kruse/paleo arguments being similar to arguing about whether Pluto is a planet while the rest of world is debating if the world is flat or not.

Anyone remember this?

Thanks! I thought the same thing but couldn't find it when I searched, hence my question. I was hoping someone else would remember ;).

Unfortunately I interpreted this at first not as comparing really advanced to out of date debates, but as contrasting empirical contentions and mere matters of conventional classification. The perils of being a philosopher...

I don't know, but that's a great simile!

Is there a bounty on this question? I humbly suggest a 7,500 point bounty.

Here is someone quoting Rob Wolff comparing non-paleo eaters to the "flat earth society:"

Similarly Rob Wolf refers to non-believers in the paleo diet paradigm as similar to members of the ???flat-earth society,??? implying that paleo believers are akin to Copernicus, while non-believers are akin to those who still believe that the earth is ???flat.???

Link: http://donmatesz.blogspot.com/2011/12/primitive-nutrition-critique-of-paleo_10.html

It apparently comes from this episode of a podcast: http://robbwolf.com/2010/01/19/the-paleolithic-solution-episode-11/

That's a tough question! I was sure Google would be able to find the answer for me, but I've spent the last 15-20 minutes creatively googling both the internet and my RSS feeds and I could not find that particular reference. I did find some very interesting articles and, though they don't answer your question, I thought they were worth sharing:
