Alan,

I just wanted to say that I think it was very nice of you to help John set up his blog.  It's looks very good, btw.  Maybe I'll have to have you help me with mine some day. ;)

FTK,
John's position is that god is dead. Why do you think you two are on the same side? The enemy of my enemy? Yet of the positions available John's seems more antagonistic to you then any of the others.
So why do you appear to support him?
FTK, do you even know what he supports or are you just happy for him in a "teach the controversy" kind of way? Spirit of open inquiry and all that?

--------------
I also mentioned that He'd have to give me a thorough explanation as to *why* I must "eat human babies".

Gah, it's WORDPRESS.

Can we get to post without having to log in?

John is considering dropping the registration requirement. Is it a big turnoff and is that because the admin gets to see email addresses?

Have you ever heard about Paul Leautaud?


No. What do you think I might learn from reading his work, and what might be a good piece to start?

Thanks. If you check the wordpress 5 minute install, you'll see that it is not that demanding.

It's stopped me participating, and I was going to wish the arl git well. I see Vmartin's Grima Wormtongue impression is getting good...

I am surprised that Richardthughes was unable to register himself at professor John Davison blog and it was Alan who registered him there!

http://john.a.davison.free.fr/?p=13#comments

Is Alan still at the charge of professor Davison's blog? It is very weird.

Anyway it's fine that the blog exists. I've  always appreciate  professor John Davison's concept of evolution.

That behind evolution are orthogenetic forces standing above "random mutation and natural selection" can be found in Manifesto and discussed at the blog. If there is interest and I am able to answer I would help to back John's ideas also there. The blog is very pleasant and fine.

------

I adressed the interesting issue of descent of testicles also at VMartin cosmology (the name of thread should probably ridicule me) but no coherent answer has appeared yet. Except of some babble of Arden Chatfield. But his responses I do not read anymore, so I don't know what the guy is babbling about. In some forums there is possibility to switch off answers from specified participants. But avatars help identified them as well.

I find it fascinating that you're PROUD of having no explanation for anything.

Paleontologist Vaclav Petr from Uni Prague has just published his Evolutionary dictionary:

http://www.vydavatel.sk/inshop/evolucni-teorie-triton+id-13115.htm

There are several references to John Davison’s work and his original semi-meiotic hypothesis of evolution. The author is another scientist form Uni Prague who mentioned professor John Davison in his work. The first one was Jaroslav Flegr in his monography Evolutionary biology where he explained professor's John Davison theory of non-homology of germ cells in mammals.

Has anyone else noticed that he doesn't seem to get the blogging format?  His latest post (Feb 6) is full of his own comments, and I mean *full*.  I'd comment there, but I'm not interested in registering.  Maybe you should give him a nudge, Alan, so his points actually get read, in theory.

Given his several (3 or 4) previous attempts at blogging that wound up with 900-comment-single-post-blogs, it's unsurprising.

The fact that he even has multiple threads this time is almost cause for a pat on the back.

But obviously you are interested in registering here - only to make a complaint that you are not inetersted in registering at professor John Davison's  blog. Eh, you must be a darwinist, aren't you?

And what do you mean by "blogging format"? Is there any standard released by some www3 consortium or what? Be more specific.

Maybe professor Davison prefers commenting some issues at discussions' areas and maybe he don't want to introduce new threads every 2 hours like doctor Myers who writes his biological feuilletons from 6 AM till 24 PM 7 days a week like an automata.

I read professor Davison's posts and they are fine.

I do like that green on black colour scheme. Reminds me of my first adventures on the net - well, it wasn't the Net back then - on a 1200/75 bps modem, a 256x192 green screen monitor, and a ZX Spectrum. Now, it's a 20Mbps cable connection, a 1900x1200 screen and something with a good few billion more transistors (that cost almost exactly the same as that original setup, before inflation. And I don't get four-digit phone bills any more).

The arguments don't seem to have progressed much, though.

No, but since you like him, we know two things about him: he's probably dead, and probably had some idea no biologist in his right mind would accept today.

And odds are no one's bothered to translate him into English and he never wrote anything after the 1930's.

Il naît d'un père comédien puis souffleur vingt-trois années à la Comédie-Française. Cinq jours après l'accouchement, il est abandonné par sa mère, une des « compagnes temporaires » du géniteur. Élevé par un père indifférent, le petit Paul acquiert très tôt le sens de l'indépendance et possède une clef du domicile à l'âge de cinq ans.

Dans son adolescence, il se lie d'amitié avec Adolphe Van Bever et partage avec lui une vie d'employé pauvre. Leur passion commune de la poésie les conduira à publier en 1900 l'anthologie Poètes d'aujourd'hui.

Pick the joy out of this...

Quote
His exploits as a seducer surprised even his acquaintances in the free and easy world of the theatre. "You'll end up in the courts one day, Leautaud"," he was told by an actress who warned against his taste for girls under the age of consent.

Each morning he would go out for a drink before breakfast. Surrounded by his pack of frisking dogs he swaggered down the street, eyes alert for women. In his hand he carried a dog whip. If he saw a woman he fancied the whip-lash would flick out and circle her waist from behind. Then he would pull her towards him. The ploy was usually effective. For every woman who resisted angrily there were always two or three ready to acquiesce. By the simple law of averages he was bound to win most of the time.

"Ah, you know he was a handsome fellow," Paul Leautaud's mother said later with a certain huskiness in her voice at the memory...

Don't underestimate the old coot. I did.

Though it was gratifying getting an apology out of VMartin when I kicked them both off my blog. Even he realized JAD had crossed the line, even if he didn't think he also did. Those two. Sheesh. :)

Oh, Dave has shown up! Goodie! Wild boar pawing and snorting, circling, some "It's hard to believe isn't it"s and "That's not what I said"s along with some name-calling/growling/"Loveitso"s, and then a major stomp-out in 3...2...

I had to share the joy with you. John Davison quickly got himself banned by Mark CC, and migrated over to my blogs. He's now on This Scientific Life, creating fun and games. the only people ansering him are myself and "Fred the Bulbous Squidge". Fred has now started calling JAD "Fluppy the Wonder Whelk".

How do you like them whelks?

I posted this question at Bob's blog:

Does anyone know who is behind the pseudonym “VMartin”?

Has that ever been answered confidently?

BTW, "Fluppy" is such a happy and harmless sounding name, I hate to see it denigrated by being attached to JAD.

Of course, since the whelk is (among the lamellibranch bivalves) that most depraved of the whole sub-species and nothing but a homosexual of the worst kind, it is a fitting moniker. (3:50 into the vid)

I am impressed by Fred's patient and consistent approach in the storm of JAD's tired effrontery. JAD remains incapable of changing his well-worn behaviour in response...news at 11:00.
