That's an inappropriate question.  It invokes ad hominem reference and
is a setup for an appeal to authority.

The relevant question that avoids such pitfalls is "what's the empirical
basis" for the assertion?

Anyone asserting truth needs to provide the basis for asserting it,
where the basis doesn't reside with anything like "I know because I'm an
expert" or "You don't know because you are not.)
