Yeah. Algis Kuliukas is a failed Ph.D. candidate/wingnut who is one of the ten or so most fanatic proponents. Having first followed Dave Hawkins to the Dawkins forum and various other venues, many of us from the old endless flood/young earth threads here settled in at Talk Rational (so, in part at least, it's a spinoff of here!). We encountered Algis at the Dawkins' forum, and he is the same kind of persistent, knuckle-headed fount of endless tard and lulz that Davey was in his heyday.
And also a catalyst of a little nucleus of skeptics who poke fun at the poor fella, learn a little genetics, evolution, anatomy, paleontology, anthro, cladistics, and so forth on the side, mostly to have darts to hurl at our whackamole.
There's a couple of other mildly-amusing trolls there, too, including the latest incarnation of that guy from here (Paley's Ghost?) who claimed to be two guys, and another whacko who is quite confident that birds are descended from pterosaurs, whales from mosasaurs, and the like.
Not to mention Davey himself, who is still flailing away, tardistically.
