Well… yes… but that sentence risks coming close to implying a false dichotomy. It is not The Appeal to Authority Logic Fallacy when someone cites the peer-reviewed academic literature or accurate summaries of same.
If you think someone on this thread is guilty of that logic fallacy, I hope you will identify the specific offending examples. Meanwhile, I suppose we could ask the same of you: that you not use appeals to authority logic fallacies. (Indeed, in these types of discussions, some people depend upon Michael Behe as their appeal to authority logic fallacy.)
