Paul, these questions are really beginning to pile up. I've compiled some of them--I don't pretend to have caught them all, and I haven't included repeats and more extended criticisms-not-in-the-form-of-a-question, nor have I surveyed other blogs or websites reviewing/criticizing, just this thread--here, just for your convenience.
Like any accumulated workload, it's going to be hard to bite off all at once, so feel free to just start in somewhere. But IF you don't get started (that is, if you continue to dance around the least relevant of the bunch as a way to avoid dealing with the rest), you certainly won't be getting anywhere fast.
(Though, unfortunately, that does seem to be the rap on your criticism-of-common-descent article.)
Anyway, here they be:
|I also have a brief question for Paul Nelson, if he does show up. Do you honestly believe that this is a college-level textbook, appropriate for use at the University of Washington, for example?|
When, ten years on, can we expect your much ballyhooed work criticizing common descent to finally appear?
| Why are they quoting the Science Framework for California Schools from 1990 in EE?|
| Why don't you just debate it [the issues arising from EE] HERE?|
| Paul, is Exploring Evolution going to contain a single new argument we haven't seen in previous creationist 'textbooks'?|
| Paul, since creationism is already illegal to teach in public schools, what utility do you see for your, uh, "science textbook" . . . ?|
Wesley R. Elsberry:
| Let's ask the Wikipedia question: is Moneymaker's status as an author of science curricula verifiable?|
Lenny (Iím gonna assume the link leads to some questions):
| On the EE website, one of the sample pages discusses something called the "artifact hypothesis". Is this a term used by actual evolutionary biologists? Most of the Google hits for this term seem to be to creationist websites.|
| When has Paul Nelson ever given a straight answer or a truthful answer to any question posed?|
| Paul, are you here to actually answer questions? Or just BS everyone again.|
| Hey Paul, does this magnificent, uh, "science textbook" tell us how old the earth is?|
| Hey Mr. Paul Nelson, |
I am a science teacher in the state of Washington and would love a review copy of EE. How can I get one?
| Why not explain why _Diarthrognathus_ has two jaw joints -- one mammalian, one reptilian.|
And why not explain why all this "therapsids" crapola is lifted nearly intact from Gish's writings at ICR from twenty-five years ago? Since, ya know, "teach the controversy" doesn't have anything -- anything at all whatsoever -- to do with either creation "science" or intelligent design "theory".
Paul, ever wonder why everyone thinks creationists/IDers are dishonest evasive deceptive deliberate liars?
Think maybe books like this one have something to do with that?
| My dad is taller than me, Paul.|
Does that mean, in your opinion, that he's not my dad?
After all, we can't tell if he's my dad through a DNA paternity test, since we all KNOW that genetic similarity doesn't indicate descent either. Right? (snicker) (giggle)
Lenny (the indefatigable):
| Tell you what, Paul, since you're such an eager betting man and all, I'll even offer you a wager. I'll give you one hundred dollars ($100) for every scientific argument against evolution presented in your magnum opus that has appeared in any peer-reviewed science journal anywhere in the world in the past 50 years, and you will give me one hundred dollars ($100) for every one that has appeared in some creationist/ID tracts published by ICR, AiG, or one of DI's minions.|
No drugs for bugs.
