I never said anyone modeled microprocessors at the transistor level. That’s a straw man. Tom English put those words in my mouth. He said modeling evolution at the protein level is like modeling processors at the transistor level. I replied with an article talking about modeling processors at the gate level. I presumed Tom knew that gates are just a few transistors each and wouldn’t quibble. But of course to save your egos both of you did continue to quibble.

The funny thing is that even after his backpedaling, he's still wrong.  The difference between transistor-level and gate-level modelling is far more than a quibble.  Gate-level models deal with boolean logic, while transistor-level models deal with actual voltage levels.

You’re done here, Karl. I find your dishonesty offensive.

Dave is shocked! shocked! to find dishonesty at UD.  Well, I don't blame him for banning Karl.  After all, Karl claimed to have a certified IQ of 150+, when in fact Karl has never taken an IQ test.

Oh wait, that was someone else...
